Taking to Twitter this morning, the band wrote: “Hope everyone has a great [Reading & Leeds] weekend” with added sunglasses emoji.
Fans then spotted the location the tweet was sent from as Reading, with the festivals’ official account then reposting and saying: “Peep the location.”
It would also be the second time in two years that the band have played a secret set, with them popping up at Reading & Leeds in 2021 for sets on the Lock Up Stage.

Up in Leeds, Halsey played her Friday headline set with “terrible food poisoning,” telling fans: “I have played shows under some messed up conditions but last night might be the worst in recent memory. Felt like I was on Jupiter the whole time.”
In a further post, she shared footage of herself in the festival’s medical tent, describing the experience as “exceptionally not fucking chill” and writing: “well [Reading & Leeds] didn’t really start how I pictured it lmao! Thanks for being so awesome Leeds. gonna rest all day and show up in tip top shape for Reading tomorrow.”
