First headline act already confirmed for Leeds Festival 2015

Organiser of Leeds and Reading Festivals Melvin Benn has told Newsbeat that the first headline act has already been booked for 2015.

“We are actually in the same position as last year, we’ve got our first headliner confirmed.”

“We are waiting for them to decide which night they want to play,” he told BBC Newsbeat.

“Once we’ve done that then we can make the offers for the others.”

Benn wouldn’t give much away about the act, but said that they had an album in the top 10 this year.
