Reading and Leeds, United Kingdom -- US pop-punk trio Blink-182 will headline next year's Reading and Leeds festivals.

They'll be joined by Disclosure, Jake Bugg, Metronomy, Of Mice & Men, I Am Legion, and Wilkinson, who were also confirmed today.

In response to their confirmation, Blink-182's Mark Hoppus stated, "I'm stoked to play Reading & Leeds 2014. It's our fourth time playing the festivals, and we're very honoured. The new year will see us in the studio preparing new music, getting ready to rock the fine people of the UK. Prepare for the fury."

Today's lineup announcement also comes with the launch of a deposit scheme for 2014 festival passes. Hopeful festivalgoers can now secure their place with a £50 deposit to be followed by three monthly payments of £53.50.
