Biffy Clyro have been officially confirmed as the second headliner for Leeds Festival 2013.
The announcement was made by Zane Lowe on Radio 1 just moments ago.
Tribes were also as good as confirmed when one of their members* told Lowe that he ‘couldn’t deny we won’t be there, but can’t confirm we will be either,’ followed by ‘you’ll get me in trouble Zane’…Looks likely in other words!
System of a Down, Bring Me The Horizon, Jake Bugg, Foals and Fall Out Boy were also all officially confirmed for the 2013 bash which takes place 23 to 25th August 2013 at Bramham Park, Leeds.
*Didn’t catch who it was sorry!

Rumours suggest that Leeds Festival organisers are looking to add three stages to the 2013 bash.
“We’re changing the arena at Reading and Leeds quite significantly. I’ve got quite a strong buzz and feeling in myself in the changes that I’m making there. I’m still formulating the ideas.” Melvin Benn told BBC Newsbeat.
“There will quite a bit more dance music, quite a bit more other bits and pieces.”
According to NME the event will be expanding from 6 to 9 stages, but the capacity will remain the same.
