Eminem joins previously announced headliners Muse and Kasabian who are returning to the festival after topping the bill in the past.
Other big names lined up to be performing across the weekend include Wiley, Bastille, Major Lazer, Two Door Cinema Club and Andy C.
The festival is once again showcasing a infusion of genres from rock, metal, grime and dance to name a few, something it has increasingly been doing over the past few years.
Melvin Benn said: “Eminem returning to Reading and Leeds is beyond exciting. His 2013 headline performance was incredible and I can’t want to have him back.
"In addition to our third and final headliner (joining Kasabian and Muse) we’ve announced over 70 additional acts to this year’s line up - it’s looking stronger than ever.”
Other new acts include Migos, Giggs, You Me At Six, Blossoms, Halsey, Becky Hill and Charli XCX.
