A number of new acts have been added to the Carling Weekend bill, including a few old favourites alongside newer bands.

Jimmy Eat World and Eagles of Death Metal will play the main stage, along with the Long Blondes, Little Man Tate and Gym Class Heroes.

The Shins, the Pipettes, Dead 60s, The Used and Hellogoodbye make up the rest of the new acts confirmed for the main stage.

The Radio 1/NME Stage has also had some new additions with the Horrors, the Enemy, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and Jamie T all signed up to play.

Indie disco favourites New Young Pony Club and the hotly-tipped Hadouken have also been added to the line-up.

All of the new acts join an already impressive bill of Razorlight, Kings Of Leon, Arcade Fire, Bloc Party and Interpol.

California legends Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Smashing Pumpkins will headline two of the days while new-rave heroes the Klaxons will headline the Radio 1/NME Stage.

The Carling Weekend will take place simultaneously in both Reading and Leeds from August 24th to August 26th.
