Only managed to see the Sunday in the end due to illness so bit gutted I missed Foals, Run The Jewels and BMTH but anyway my Reading ratings:
Shura - 6/10 Decent enough but most of the songs sounded very similar, possibly the smallest crowd I've seen at the NME stage in the four years I've been but not too surprising given how early it was.
Hippo Campus - 5/10 Only caught a couple of songs hence the rating but seemed better live than on record
Jack Garratt (BBC Introducing set) - 7/10 Very impressed, took a couple of songs for the crowd to get into it and the sound was an issue at the beginning but second half was very impressive. The track 'Weathered' in particular.
The Cribs - 6/10 Started well with the crowd really into it, lost interest though after a few tracks towards the middle and checked out other stages
Mini Mansions - 7/10 Far better than I expected them to be, crowd were really responsive too
The Maccabees - 9/10 Probably the set of the day for me, second time I've seen them at Reading and they've been superb both times, couldn't ask for anymore from setlist. Only wish I had been slightly closer to experience more of the atmosphere.
Jamie T - 7/10 Jamie was great but this set was ruined by the crowd around me, had people barging everyone out the way trying to get to the front (was more toward the middle of the field not near the front at all) and people starting mosh pits during every song
Kendrick Lamar - 9/10 Smashed it. Crowd were great, went as a casual fan not knowing what to expect and left thrilled. Comparing this set to Eminem's in 2013, this wins hands down.
The Libertines - 8/10 Enjoyed them, been waiting a while to see them and thought they delivered. Do feel like others said it lacked the excitement that a headliner should bring. Don't think I've seen a smaller headliner crowd either.
Glad I ventured back for the day but doubt I'll be heading back anytime soon due to the crowd it attracts now. Before I had left my tent had been moved and broken (on the Thursday!), too many people intent on starting mosh pits during every act/song, taking selfies, getting high and shouting Alan etc 24/7.
