The line-up keeps getting bigger and better for this year's Leeds Festival which will now include a DJ set by Metronomy's supertalented main man.

Progressive pop specialist Joe Mount will be playing a special Metronomy Summer '08 DJ Set on the Saturday night as part of the now traditional 'take over' by Transgressive Records.

It's the ninth consecutive year these heavyweight independent record label heroes have done so and this time they're bringing their biggest and boldest line up yet to ensure the festivities continue long after the headliners have finished.

Hijacking Reading on Friday, and Leeds on Saturday and Sunday night, the stage runs from 9.30pm until late, bringing a wealth of boundary-pushing, brilliant acts in a series of unmissable exclusive appearances.

This year, the inimitable Fat White Family – one of the country's finest live acts – will be gracing the Alternative stage at Leeds on the Sunday night of the festival. They'll be joined by fast-rising hip-hop star Loyle Carner and sets from Bless DJs and the Transgressive Sound System DJs.

The Alternative Stage at Reading Festival on Friday will be a non-stop indie rock party with back to back DJ sets from rock's finest including Peace vs Hinds, BBC Radio 1 favourite Huw Stephens vs Pulled Apart By Horses, Transgressive Sound System vs Rockfeedback DJs and a closing set by Jen Long vs Bless DJs. Specially commissioned live visuals will be provided throughout the night, as well as more surprise appearances.

Toby L, co-founder of Transgressive, said: "This time, we cannot wait to welcome Loyle Carner - one of the most important new artists on the planet right now - to the stage, plus Fat White Family, Honne and all our guest DJs, not least a very welcome return from Metronomy.

"Meanwhile, God only knows what Super-Hans has in store for us; his first ever Glastonbury appearance this summer is already the stuff of legend."

Leeds Festival runs at Bramham Park from August 26-28 and features headliners Biffy Clyro, Fall Out Boy, Foals, Disclosure and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
