SXSW Showcasing Alumni at the Reading & Leeds Festivals

The Wytches at SXSW 2014

What’s the difference between the Reading Festival and the Leeds Festival? After doing some quick Googling, we’ve determined that the two events happen at the same time in two different locations about 200 miles apart. There were some comments about the all-around “vibes” of each fest, too. But that’s about where the differences end.

The lineups for each event, or at least our lists of SXSW alumni, were pretty much identical and incredibly massive. We’ve provided the full list of former SXSW Showcasing Artists who will be performing at both festivals below.

You can also join us tomorrow on SXSWfm for an hour-long specialty show focusing on a few bands performing across the UK this weekend. Those will air here at 12 & 6 CST!
