Reading 2014: Jamie T confirmed to play set
Singer-songwriter will perform on the Festival Republic Stage
Jamie T will play a surprise set at Reading Festival tonight, Friday 22 August.
The singer-songwriter, who recently confirmed his comeback tour, will appear at 7.30pm on the Festival Republic Stage.
It has yet to be confirmed if he will appear at Reading’s sister festival Leeds on its matching line-up.
Jamie T simply tweeted to his 36,000 fans earlier this afternoon: “7.30pm – Reading Festival – Festival Republic Stage”.
He will be joining already-confirmed acts Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Orwells and Sweethead on the stage.

The singer announced his return to the music scene earlier this summer after a five year hiatus with two songs “Zombie” and “Don’t You Find”.
His forthcoming album Carry on The Grudge will be released on 29 September following his last album Kings and Queens in 2009.
The singer is set to start a 10-date UK tour at the end of October, performing in Bristol, Southampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham and London.
Queens of the Stone Age, Paramore and Vampire Weekend are set to headline the main stage at Reading tonight.
