Reading & Leeds Festival 2016: Artists With Style We Love

The Reading & Leeds Festival line up is a scorcher this year (fingers crossed the bank holiday weekend weather will be too).

But it’s not the just amazing music we’re excited to see – the annual festival is up there with Glastonbury and Coachella when it comes to street style inspo (just no flower crowns, please).

And we haven’t even mentioned the fashion on stage – here are four artists whose clothes we want in our wardrobes, as much as their songs on our Spotify.

AlunaGeorge

Why We Love Them

Get dancing to the London duo’s unique electro-soul, and prepare to want to coordinate the rest of your festival outfits with your friends like vocalist Aluna Francis and her badass backing dancers.

Inheaven

Why We Love Them

Not only are the South London quartet impressive enough to get Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’ seal of approval, bassist Chloe Little has the 70s-inspired wardrobe of our dreams.

Revamping 60s girl-group pop for the modern age, this all-female band are taking off this year (and pretty much always rocking our ideal festival outfits).

With new frontwoman Edith Frances on board, Crystal Castles could be this year’s comeback kid – not to mention our new grunge style icons.
