Reading and Leeds line ups set to increase digital jukebox plays
The line ups for the Leeds and Reading Festivals were announced this week with Foo Fighters, The Cure and Florence and the Machine all set to appear during the infamous August event. The bill, which also included The Shins, Mystery Jets and Kasabian, was positively received by fans and sales were said to be strong as the first tickets for the festivals were released.
Indeed, the positive ticket sales were attributed to the news that Foo Fighters and The Cure would be appearing during the festival. The Foo Fighters last appeared at Reading and Leeds in 2002 and 2005. Meanwhile, The Cure will be performing at the festivals for the first time in 33 years, having previously appeared at Reading in 1979.
Over the weeks leading up to the festivals, we expect to see more punters selecting digital jukebox tracks from the headline acts. The Cure and Foo Fighters are both extremely popular artists, particularly with in venues with the Rock Box digital jukebox package and, as we get nearer to the festival, we also predict rising plays of tracks from Kaiser Chiefs, Paramore and Enter Shikari, who are also on stage during the weekend. Indeed, the seven million-track VHub has all these artist discographies.
The Rock Box jukebox contains 10,000 hand-picked tracks from a variety of cult indie, punk and metal bands. The digital jukebox package is updated monthly with over 100 tracks and is specifically tailored to the rock audience. It also includes the option to feature local bands and venue favourites.
