Taking place at Bramham Park from August 21-25, next year’s feast of music is already promising a head turning line-up.
Also appearing on the main stages will be USA’s pop-punkers Blink-182 and Liam Gallagher who will play Oasis' debut album Definitely Maybe in full on its 30th anniversary.
Set to present more than 150 of the world's biggest music acts, the four-day extravaganza is expected to boast its usual impressive late-night programming, an eco-campsite, top comedians and so much more.
Festivalgoers will also have the chance to see Gerry Cinnamon, American DJ Skrillex, rapper Digga D and Mercury Prize nominee Raye.
Mercury Prize nominee producer and DJ Fred Again, whose reputation has soared after impressive performances at Madison Square Garden and Glastonbury in recent months, said this will be “the only UK festival I’m playing next year and is the first festival I ever went to”.
Lana Del Rey, is headlining for the first time, and Blink-182, who are returning to the festivals for the first time in a decade, have both said they will not play any other UK festivals in 2024.
The managing director of promoter Festival Republic, Melvin Benn, said it was "very rewarding" to see Catfish And The Bottlemen headlining the festival for a second time.
“We are thrilled to announce the first wave of artists for Reading & Leeds 2024,” said Mr Benn.
"I am very proud that the biggest artists in the world choose to play Reading & Leeds and to have three incredible UK festival exclusives – the electrifying Fred Again, a true generational talent Lana Del Rey and the legendary Blink-182.”
He also hailed the 2023 Leeds Festival as a “hugely successful year for attendance".
Both Festival Republic and West Yorkshire Police have said safety planning for the 2024 festival had begun.
Tickets will go on sale on November 30.
