Queens of the Stone Age and Paramore May Take Turns Going On Last At Reading and Leeds Festivals
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.11.2014



In an interview with NME, Reading & Leeds Festivals organizer Melvin Benn said that Queens of the Stone Age and Paramore, who were announced yesterday as the headliners (along with Arctic Monkeys and Blink 182) may take turns to go on last at the August 22-24 festivals.

He said: "When I told them we have two sites and they could essentially swap who goes on last each date, they loved the idea. We're just working out the minor details now. Both bands wanted to do it, but we didn't know what to do. So, almost tongue in cheek, I said, Why don't you both headline? I expected to get a response back from both camps that was basically two fingers up at me, but they were both into the idea."

Paramore will be the first female-fronted headliners since Garbage in 1998. Benn said the criticism of the lack of female performers did not affect his decision. He added: "For me, popular music is not gender directed. It doesn't enter my thinking when I'm working out who should perform at Reading And Leeds."
