  1. Reading/Leeds really seems to have fallen in stature over the last 10/12 years. When I was going, bands like Metallica, Rage against the Machine, Tenacious D, Radiohead, Guns ‘n’ Roses, QOTSA, Blink 182, Muse, Arctic Monkeys, and The Smashing Pumpkins were playing – undoubtedly some of the biggest , most influential bands of all time, and legitimately the line-ups were better than Glastonbury. The festival had a direction and feel about it, the Radio 1 stage was for your best-of-last-couple-of-years indie acts whilst the Main Stage was for your huge crowd drawing acts – someone like Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes would’ve probably been on the Lock Up stage or Radio 1 at best. Nowadays it feels like a mish-mash of acts that are kinda current and kinda big being thrown in together. Previous years had 2 huge headliners and one less-big headliner, but more recently it seems more like 1 big name with 2 smaller names padding out the preceding nights. I look forward to Download (as it’s moved a bit more mainstream) announcements nowadays.

  2. Is it just me or does anyone feels like it’s been the same lineup for the last 3 years with the same names just shuffled around slightly?

  3. Filling up nicely. If the fest republic and pit fill up good then I may get a weekend ticket if not will probably just hit the foos day to hopefully sack em off to see shikari play common dreads in full.

  4. I mean Foo Fighters, 1975, and ADTR are some of the most milquetoast bands ever. The Distillers are somewhere between Green Day and Nofx AKA totally forgettable, Post Malone is the Nickleback of Rap. Totally whack.
