Back in December, Eminem was confirmed as a headliner for this summer’s Reading and Leeds festivals in England, and now he has some company. The events announced today that Green Day will also headline the events, while Fall Out Boy, Azealia Banks, the Lumineers and Imagine Dragons will appear as well.

Reading and Leeds take place on the same weekend, Aug. 23-25, with the two events sharing the same acts, who perform on different days at each festival. A post on the Reading website read, “Green Day are integral to the identity of Reading & Leeds Festivals, with their performances among the greatest in the Festivals’ history. With each new record and incarnation, they bring riot and rebellion to a new audience.”

Additional performers for the festivals include Alex Clare, A$AP Rocky, Major Lazer, New Found Glory, Nine Inch Nails, and Baauer. The preliminary lineup can be found here. The events are expected to announce many more performers soon.

Last year, Paramore, Florence + the Machine and Foster the People appeared at Reading and Leeds, but Odd Future stole the headlines when they beat up a blow-up doll during their sets.
