Over the last few years The Pit stage alongside The Lock-Up have housed some of the most memorable performances of recent times. It's reinvention and encouraging booking has meant that around announcement time, the anticipation surrounding who will be hitting these stages is huge.

After unfortunately having to pull out of last year's event due to personal reasons, MASTODON have been revealed as headliners on The Pit stage (Saturday Reading, Sunday Leeds). The band are still riding on the huge wave of momentum created via the release of Once More 'Round The Sun and we're certain that their set at Reading & Leeds this year will be well worth the wait.
