Reading and Leeds festivals will go ahead in August, organisers have confirmed.
The news was confirmed in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon.
It read: “Reading and Leeds 2021. Following the government’s recent announcement, we can’t wait to get back to the fields this summer. Let’s go! #RandL21.”
Stormzy, Post Malone and Liam Gallagher will headline both events which will take place from 27-29 August.
The festival was forced to cancel its 2020 event due to the pandemic.
In a statement at the time, they said: “We’ve been closely monitoring this unprecedented situation, and we were hopeful we could deliver the ultimate festival to you in August, something to look forward to in these strange and confusing times.
“However, it’s become clear that it’s just not possible for this year’s festival to go ahead.
“We want to extend our gratitude to our teams, artists and partners who work so hard each year. And to our fans, we’re nothing without you – we thank you for your continued support and understanding.”
