Some Reading and Leeds Festival ticketholders aren't happy after learning who will replace original headliners Rage Against the Machine, even going as far as to ask for refunds. 

After Rage pulled out of their upcoming European shows following "medical guidance," English pop rock band the 1975 have been slotted to take their place. Citing the two band's vast difference in genre, some of the harder rock fans who planned on attending Reading and Leeds have taken to Twitter (where else?) to voice their opinions. 
Angry Twitter mob aside, Reading and Leeds Festival is set to take place in the UK from August 26 to 28.
