Stormzy, Liam Gallagher and Rage Against the Machine will top the bill on each of the festivals' three days, while the line-up below them also features the biggest and best names in alternative music.

Rage Against the Machine will be making sure Leeds is anything but 'Calm Like a Bomb' on the Friday night, before Stormzy - who logged a career defining headline performance at last year's Glastonbury - will headline on the Saturday.

Liam Gallagher - who self-confirmed his booking late last year to the chagrin of festival organisers - closes out the Leeds leg on Sunday.

The Festival Republic stage will be showcasing some of the best new and upcoming indie talents, like Spector, Sports Team and Jaws, while the BBC Radio 1Xtra Stage will be topped by Denzel Curry, Danny Brown and M Huncho.

Of course, the above artists are just a few choice highlights from each stage.
