  1. Lineup 2018

    When they last played Reading, they did the likes of Molly's Chambers and Red Morning Light, but at a very slow tempo. It was awful, those songs are meant for bars not stadium shows with lights.
  2. 2019 festival

    I see the Pumpkins at APE rather than BST, they really don't suit the other headliners.
  3. Lineup 2018

    Funny how Caleb rages at the thought of them only being popular from OBTN onward, yet they refuse to play the songs that came before them.
  4. Lineup 2018

    Probably. Just look at the viewing numbers to the earlier bangers and then the OBTN onward and there's a huge difference. I saw them in 2010 and the majority of the crowd had never heard of The Bucket, which was probably their biggest song before OBTN.
  5. Lineup 2018

    It's weird how the likes of them and The Kooks have had this renaissance recently. I suppose The Fratellis will be next.
  6. Lineup 2018

    I don't know if it's just me, but what exactly have The Wombats done to make them third top in 2018? I only recall two songs of theirs from 10 years ago, but even at their 'peak' they were never third down popular.
  7. Lineup 2018

    I always thought she was too middle of the road for Reading tbh, probably explains why she's never headlined.
  8. 2018 New Music

    Can't say I'm a fan of the new stuff so far, but we'll see when the album drops. Though it feels more like a Patrick solo act these days, with the constant line up changes.
  9. Lineup 2018

    That would be an enormous and brave shift to go from people expecting Katy Perry to the sudden change in style and booking bands again, can't see it happening. Sad to say but it looks like Reading is no longer relevant if they can't even compete for the likes of Foos and AM. When you look at the history and line ups this festival's had, I find it hard to believe they are happy with how it's gone. It used to arguably be one of the best festivals in the world.
  10. Lineup 2018

    When Mean Fidder was taken over back in 2005 it became more and more aimed towards a younger audience, but even when I was going they were still booking acts like The Cure, NIN, Smashing Pumpkins, Jane's Addiction, Weezer, The National, Pulp, GNR, Cypress Hill etc. They've obviously decided that the only bands they should book are nostalgia acts for people born in the mid 90s onwards and new bands. Even from a hip hop perspective, Run DMC, N.E.R.D and Childish Gambino would have been far more interesting bookings that were available.
  11. Lineup 2018

    I'm sure loads of rich GCSE/A Level kids will still end up with tickets, but the music fan or Glastonbury attendee looking for something different this year is not going buy in bulk.
  12. Lineup 2018

    Everyone's complaining about too much rap/grime, but the real issue is the lack of decent rock bands. KOL have been terrible for ten years, FOB and PATD were popular ten years ago, then you have The Wombats, landfill indie from 10 years ago and Papa Roach and Sum 41 who were mostly popular when I was in year 7!
  13. 2019 festival

    Stormzy The 1975/Royal Blood Arctic Monkeys
  14. Lineup 2018

    Jack White QOTSA Pixies Pearl Jam The Breeders The National All around this summer and none booked. Not saying they would all play, but they could have at least tried.
  15. Primavera 2018

    I think Smashing Pumpkins would be pretty likely. Pavement too I guess if they do the reunion.
