I am perpetually jealous of this festival.

the rest of the line up sucks imo but this looks pretty good

Went to Reading, last year, and it was one of the best experiences of my life; the line-up was one of the weakest of the last decade, compared to the previous years, but I've had the opportunity to see playin' on stage an incredible amount of bands I love. This year...well, I really don't know. Lock-Up Stage pretty much kills it every year, but out of the 30 artists and more from the Main Stage, there are only 10 artists at best that I really wanna see playin' live, including Enter Shikari who I've already seen them last year.

Stoked for Apologies, I Have None. Not the best Lock Up ever and certainly not enough to get me to cough up £200.

This improves the overall lineup millionfold.

Killer additions. I keep forgetting how gigantic Enter Shikari is over there.

God damn that stage is awesome

domotime2 04/17/12 07:50 AM

so for Friday i could see
Cure, Paramore, anti-flag, social distortion, bouncing souls, saves the day

saturday i could see
the shins, at the drive in, billy talent, me first and the gimme gimmes, less than jake, flatliners

sunday is not my cup of tea.

id go saturday, i guess, but the three main headliners do nothing for me. this festival used to make me lose it when i was a kid

J.Dick 04/17/12 09:57 AM
