US rockers Queens of the Stone Age and Paramore have been unveiled as the final headliners at this year's Reading and Leeds festivals.

They join previously announced headline acts Arctic Monkeys and Blink-182 at the twin events staged over the bank holiday weekend in August.

The two bands will play Reading on Friday and Leeds on Saturday, taking it in turns to perform last.

It is the fifth time Queens of the Stone Age will have played the event, and Paramore's fourth appearance.
