2017 festival

Recommended Posts

Any secret set rumours out there for the Festival Republic stage early on Saturday?  Seems like a very late start compared to the other days.

Looks like Eminem isn't going to let the BBC televise him yet again. They're advertising both Muse and Kasabian's headline shows on iPlayer but there is no news on Eminem.

With how much rain there's been at Leeds today, even if it doesn't rain for the rest of the weekend, it'll be just as muddy as last year again

That's a shame. Short downpour in Reading last night, looks like it will be dry and sunny for the rest of the week.

Late suggestion for secret set: Twin Atlantic? Then they go on to headline The Pit or something next year? Could get a couple of songs out between now and then

First time in a few years I haven't been setting off for Reading Festival. Strange feeling. Have a good weekend everyone.

They come do a secret set in the big tent and then you bump them down to headline the pit next year? Don't see it.

I think they have the best chance against Kasabian though, Wen't to see a bit of TDCC last year and the crowd was quite small ish.

I saw Nero close NME in 2014 to a very small crowd. I wasn't there but I imagine Justice suffered similarly in 2012.

Phoenix was about half full in 2013

Was going to mention Phoenix, and other small ones I've experienced are Babyshambles in 2008 and LCD in 2010. I think YM@6 will do ok, there not up against anything massive elsewhere and they've always drawn a decent crowd at R&L

I remember about 250 people watching Graham Coxon headline the NME tent in 2004.

What made it particularly sad was that he was playing against The Darkness who for some still unknown reason had packed the Main Stage. They used to have really bad headliners occasionally in the 00s (I'm looking at you Razorlight!)

I remember Graham had to stop his set half way through because the Darkness had let fireworks off and we couldn't hear him. I also vaguely remember him starting most songs by saying 'This next song's about disillusionment'!

The few of us there were fans though and it ended up being a great gig.

Faith No More had a very small crowd up against Kings of Leon in 2009. From what I was told at the time ATDI had a tiny crowd up against Kasabian in 2012, but You Me At Six are far more aligned with the potential Reading crowd than ATDI.

Don't know if it's already common knowledge, but just saw a poster for Architects playing Alexandra Palace in February. While She Sleeps and Counterparts supporting

Anyone got any ideas on what the 'Something' is that You me at six have planned for the weekend?
Personally hoping for Take off your colours in full, i'd settle for them just doing a set list of anything pre Cavalier Youth though aha!
