The UK’s biggest festival weekend has announced this year’s headliners. Pearl Jam, Franz Ferdinand, and Muse are the top three acts appearing at Reading and Leeds August 25-27. Supporting acts at the shows include Audioslave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Chemical Romance, Belle & Sebastian, the Raconteurs, Primal Scream, Maximo Park, the Futureheads, the Streets, Arctic Monkeys, Placebo, Kaiser Chiefs, and Feeder.
Pearl Jam has not played a festival since nine fans were suffocated during their performance at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark six years ago. Band members met with family members of the victims, attended the funerals, and have generally avoided large-scale, low-security outdoor events since.http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1002276316
