Queens of the Stone Age and Paramore have been announced as Reading and Leeds Festivals' third and fourth headliners, joining the already confirmed Arctic Monkeys and Blink 182.

In a festival first, the two bands will co-headline the festival on the Friday night, before Arctic Monkeys and Blink 182 perform on the Saturday and Sunday respectively.

The event will take place on the weekend of 22-24 August this year, with Vampire Weekend, Jake Bugg and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis also performing on the Main Stage.

Courteeners, Bombay Bicycle Club and Disclosure will headline NME's second stage meanwhile, with DJ sets will come from Netsky, Pendulum and Flume.

Reading and Leeds 2014 line-up in full

Warpaint, Chvrches, The 1975, Metronomy and Jimmy Eat World are among the other acts performing at the annual festivals.

Organiser Melvin Benn last week said the 2014 line-up "will surprise a lot of people," perhaps a reference to the higher number of rappers than usual, which include Danny Brown, Joey Bada$$ and Pusha T.
