    Why would you lie about anything at all? (one of us is on the ball)

    Wonder Years headlining the Lamar day would be perfect for me

    Anyone have any thoughts of whether the Wonder Years could play? Supposedly making a new record at the mo, would a European Summer tour be an option or are they more likely to stick to the states?

    Security

    Noticed loads of armed police outside on the Friday night bag checks seem to be a fair bit stricter too

    Supposedly the Tears played to pretty much a line of people on the barrier in 2005, didnt actually see it though (like pretty much everyone else it seems!)
  8. This years traditional weather thread Reading Looked like a chance of rain earlier in the week but now seems to be settled to be pretty much perfect festival weather, not too hot and just enough sun to not get you burnt! - https://www.accuweather.com/en/gb/reading/rg1-2/daily-weather-forecast/330396 Leeds Also looking good bar perhaps the Sunday, although a little rain on Weds adding to a load on Tuesday may make it a small trial for early birders- https://www.accuweather.com/en/gb/leeds/ls1-6/daily-weather-forecast/712327

    Hotel accomodation

    You may want to offer a bit of discount if you want to sell, you can get the two nights at the Penta Hotel (a nicer hotel) in central reading, so easily walkable from the site for the same price

    I suspect it will be big at both, reaction to Rock n Roll star and Slide Away will likely be less though, as whilst huge songs at the time for those who 'were there', they're probably less well known amongst the younger crowds. Its pretty much the equivalent of Page and Plant playing in '98, as someone who was then 20, I was firmly encamped at the Super Furry Animals in the tent. If there had been no one I liked in the tent, I would've been at Page and Plant but would've known nothing but the very biggest songs

    The average age at Glastonbury is over 40 now isn't it? You'd imagine low mid 20s at Reading, so for the vast majority at Reading most wouldn't have been more than a few years old when Oasis where at their peak. So it may make for a different experience

    Are they really that big in the UK now? Can't imagine the tent being too busy when they're on given the headline opposition elsewhere. They had a fair old crowd last time they played, they actually seemed bigger to me then though. (Although I have since left the UK!)

    This is definitely my worse clash. Love Grouplove and theyre brilliant live. Never seen Korn though. At the moment it pretty much looks like they will clash directly. Boooooooooooooo

    Can't imagine them on the main stage. They were great in the Pit a couple of years ago, even the NME would seem a bit weird though

    Yes a full on Oasis maybe. Not just Gallagher though. Ian Brown played mid main stage last time he played Reading (and was quite possibly the worst act I've seen in my 20 years of going!)

    The actual full Oasis didnt even go down a storm when they played back in 2001 or whenever it was.

    The Hunna packed out the FR last year. I would certainly choose them over Haim given that choice (I shall be watching Muse though obv)

    As another 20 plus year Veteran I'd say its perhaps the 3rd worse Ive seen, proving your opinion is not based on your age or experience! I have pretty much zero interest in Gallagher or indeed Eminem, stars I as excited to see when they headlined in the ear 00s (both were dung!). Japandroids turning up is the only really highlight for me at this stage, tempered by the fact Grouplove will clash with Korn, but will no doubt find more I like when I listen to a lot Ive never even heard of!

    Hoping that Grouplove do indeed headline the FR on the Saturday, the perfect antitode for those of us who have had enough of Eminem. BSP were fantastic too last time he headlined!
  21. Not sure if this is just me or not but on opening the forum on my phone (iPhone 7+, Safari and Chrome, I am also based in the US), the site automatically redirects to 'won.today-card.com', where I am offered a choice of free gifts. There is no way I can return back to the forum so therefore can not use the site in any capacity on my phone

    hotel or camp? first time goer

    There's loads of Hotels in Reading that have shorter walks than some campsites, even with the new elongated entrances. You really need to be booking them by October latest though, when theyre cheaper than the 'posh' camping on site AND much closer walk wise

    They were ace a couple of years back in the pit or lockup or whatever it's called. Didn't realize they had something new out. Will take a look (listen)
