Foo Fighters for Reading 2012?

Could it be that the Foo Fighters will be one of this year's Reading/Leeds headliners? Quite probably, given that the band are streaming their debut performance at the 1995 Reading Festival on their website: The headliners are due to be announced this evening...

Reading/Leeds 2011 line-up announced

The first bands have been announced for Reading/Leeds 2011. My Chemical Romance, The Strokes and Muse are the main stage headliners. Tickets are available via www.seetickets.com. Weekend tickets cost a whopping £192.50, plus booking fees and postage. Car parking is £5. That's one hell of a lot of money for what looks like one of the weakest line-ups in living memory.

A very wet Reading in store...

As rain continues to fall, and parts of the campsite are reportedly under water, Reading Festival organisers insist they will be able to keep any waterlogging under control via the use of Thames sluice-gates and tons of wood-chips. The good news is that the forecast is for the rain to pass through overnight, with a drier day tomorrow and sunny spells on Saturday before the rain returns on Sunday evening.
