Did reading have any competition for bands in 2002? You seem a bit desperate dissing the lineup this year

Well yeah of course. The festival scene was comparably far less competitive 10 years ago. I think you'll find that the standard of the line up for most festivals has declined because there are so many competing to get the top bands.

If you don't like the line-up then don't go.

I was going to agree a bit with you thetime. 10 years ago it was a different festival completely with much less competition.

But to comment on your vs VCK.

Friday shows that mid main downwards is still nothing to shout about.

Saturday is a mixed bag really, and to be fair 2002 just had Foo Fighters on a different day, now we still have them.

Sunday, except for Slipknot and The Offsrping, it actually beats 2002 quite easily.

Compare it to 2005 if you need to, seen as one of the best all round lineups over the years compared to any of them.

10 - 16 2002 wins! but double Foos would be too much! And some of them could go either way for me.

Of course a lineup from 10 years ago is gonna look better than one now because you have bands that are headliners/subs now playing lower slots making it look like a much better lineup than now, you can't compare lineups on strength when they're this many years apart.

The other thing worth mentioning is where those bands were in 2002. Obviously if we got that line up today it would be fantastic. But bear in mind that in 2002, bands like Sum 41 and Less Than Jake were nothing compared to what they are now. Even Muse and Slipknot were nowhere near as highly regarded as they are today.

In 5-10 years time there's a chance we'll look back on this years line up and see that a lot of the bands have gone on to become headliners.

But you also have bands you look back on and think "what the fuck were they doing booking them there?" . Some people on here remind me of that lunatic britney spears fan.

18-8 is what you call a thrashing but 2002 is my favourite year ever, the tents were amazing as well.
