Daft Punk - Seen them once and they are hands down the best act I've ever seen

Rush - Saw them play Moving Pictures in full at MEN last summer and its the only thing thats come close to Daft Punk

The third would be Metallica, but there here every summer anyway

so

Weezer, but not playing a greatest hits set like they've done last two years, I'd want album tracks from blue, pinkerton, maladroit and other rarely played songs

Rammstein

Daft Punk

(pre-shit) Red Hot Chili Peppers

That would do me, and an undercard of Rob Zombie, Elbow, Pixies, Specials, Manic Street Preachers, Madness, Space, Streetlight Manifesto, Transplants, Weezer, NIN, Prodigy, Metric, Mad Capcule Market, Frank Turner, Gogol Bordello and Beatsteaks would be nice too.

If we're simply naming bands that no longer exist then...

Abba

The Beatles

Led Zeppelin

Probably not suited to Reading though...

Otherwise,

Daft Punk

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds (NME Tent)

Nine Inch Nails (reformed for the main stage or NME)

Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Led Zep, Pearl Jam, Rammstein, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Muse, Oasis, Arcade Fire, The Smiths, Radiohead, The Verve

Any combination of those would be incredible for me!

The bands named so far are all possible though, unlike The Beatles, Nirvana and The Experience...

Err... just a quick look through some of the suggestions so far...

Pink Floyd

Led Zeppelin

The Smiths

Guns N' Roses (original lineup)

RHCP (when they were good)

The Kinks

and these that are also no longer big enough to headline anyway:

Smashing Pumpkins (original line up)

Sonic Youth

My Bloody Valentine

Ride - Personally I believe these guys never got the recongition they deserved. Can't see this happening for obvious reasons, If a reformation ever did happen I could imagine them headlining NME but being top of the bill main stage is just complete dreaming! They did sub-headline in 92 and I advise that you should check out the live album they released of that show.

Daft Punk, Arcade Fire and Radiohead headlining with Pixies, The National and The Flaming Lips subbing and Weezer, Death Cab For Cutie and Modest Mouse 3rd down.

I can't imagine it selling particularly well, but it'd be the best weekend ever.

RHCP are doing gigs this summer.

Led Zep played only a few years back.

The Smiths are very likely to reform.

Guns and Roses are still performing.

How are these acts 'NON EXISTANT'?!

I think you've missed a few things....

Led Zep played a one off gig where tickets went out by lottery.

RHCP aren't good any more, and that was specified.

He said original GnR, and they haven't played together in ages.

The Smiths said they'd only reform if the government fell apart. They're all busy doing their own thing, there's demand, but since when did that make a band 'very like to reform'?

He was talking about 'before RHCP were shit,' implying they are shit now, implying he won't want to see them.

Led Zep are very unlikely to play again, let alone Reading.

The Smiths hate each other, so i would hardly say they are very likely to reform.

He was talking about the ORIGINAL GnR line up, before it became the Axl Rose vanity project.

The Smiths very likely to reform? There's as much chance as Abu Hamza being employed to drum for them as there is of Joyce doing it.

Yeah, The Smiths aint reforming, there's just no way it's happening. If they did it would be shit anyway.

But in a perfect situation these bands could play, which is the point of the thread. The Beatles, Nirvana and The Experience can't.

Exactly this was my point, I presumed these dreams were reasonable and possible rather than people who REALLY don't exist anymore.
