Last year they stormed Sonisphere and in their wake left a cornucopia of dropped jaws, and it’s highly likely Babymetal will induce a similar reaction when they take on Reading and Leeds Festivals this coming August.
Aside from the performance itself, my favourite slice of this newsflash is the release of the limited edition Babymetal t-shirt available to all day ticket purchasers. So if like me you’re a little bit obsessed with these overlords of Kawaii-Metal, this will truly excite you. However, if like me you already have a ticket then this is seven shades of bittersweet; this is one lot of crude doodles I need asap.
Reading and Leeds is on over August Bank Holiday weekend and Babymetal join the likes of Marmozets, Metallic and Royal Blood on the main stage. Full details are on the Festival’s official website here.
