Reading and Leeds fests sell out
Arctic Monkeys
Arctic Monkeys are one of the headliners at this year's Reading and Leeds fests

Weekend tickets for this year's Reading and Leeds festivals have sold out, organisers say.

Passes were snapped up after tickets went on sale on Monday [March 30].

As previously reported Arctic Monkeys, Kings Of Leon and Radiohead will headline this year's event which takes place between 28-30 August.

Festival organiser Melvin Benn said: "This is the seventh year in succession that both events have sold out within 24 hours of going on sale."

However, Benn also warned against buying tickets from unofficial sources.

He said: "I must express caution towards all those who will now try to get their hands on tickets in whatever way they can as they do need to be careful of dodgy sites.

"The only site I can recommend will be Viagogo who will at least guarantee anything they sell."

Day tickets for Reading have also sold out.
