The third act to headline this summer's Leeds Festival has this evening been revealed as Green Day.
Festival director Melvin Benn has named the band behind hits like 'American Idiot', 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' and '21 Guns' to line up alongside Eminem and Biffy Clyro.
They'll play the main stage on the Saturday night of the August Bank Holiday weekend at Bramham Park.
Up to eighty thousand people are expected at the event, which is now in its fifteenth year, and will also feature Sheffield band Bring Me the Horizon - tipped by Melvin as future headliners; plus Mercury Music prize winners Alt-J, who formed while studying at Leeds University.
Tonight Melvin told ITV Calendar he expected the festival to be as popular as ever, with Green Day a particularly big draw after they played Reading last year but didn't make an appearance at Leeds.
