US RAPPER Eminem is to headline the Reading and Leeds Festival in 2017.

The gigs will mark the third time that Eminem will have played the August double header, having appeared in 2001 and again in 2013.

He will be joined by the likes of Muse and Kasabian over the three day weekend event, which this year takes place between August 25 and 27.

Festival organiser Melvin Benn called Eminem’s return “beyond exciting”.

Further acts to have been confirmed this year are Haim, Ray BLK, Halsey and Charli XCX, fronted by Chrissy Costanza.
