Shikari and TSSF clashing would be a right mare, the other big clash for me is Nothing, Nowhere and ADTR keep missing the chance to see NN ffs

Only shikari/ tssf and ADTR/ sundara karma that clash for me. Think I'll opt for tssf then 1/2 of Foos before Shikari, will hurt missing some of Foos despite seeing them at the etihad

Any chance we get some of the dance stage playing Relentless too? Like some of the DJs, but would rather go see a band in the day

It is absolutely criminal how Basement have been so over looked by the media all these years.

I know it has nothing to do with this threat but this new Foals album might be the best thing to ever happen to the human race.

I’m not a huge foals fan but this album is nothing short of top notch

that announcement literally added two bands for me, Of Mice & Men and Stand Atlantic... Friday/Sunday (R) are looking great for me but I'm struggling to fill my day plan for Saturday, Against The Current and Of Mice & Men, and at this rate I'll end up seeing Post Malone just because there's nothing better to watch on

ffs I didn’t get this straight away. I blame it on it being 6:27am.

Hi all, been a long time reader, so thought I would start posting.  As by my username I've been gigging and doing festivals for nearly 27 years.  Reading 92 was my first ever festival and will be returning this year again.

I see people moaning about the band's etc, but I think this year has a great diverseness to it and after seeing 21 pilots at Wembley last night I will be watching them again. 

 

Not in a long time have a I seen a band have such a cult following and put on a show with so much energy to back this up.  Go watch them as will get the place bouncing

In my opinion the Friday at reading is the best single day at a festival I’ve seen for a long time (if not the best ever). Ive got more bands I want to see on that day compared to the other two combined.

Does anyone know if it’s possible to buy early bird tickets either after buying a weekend ticket or from a separate site on its own e.g. twickets?

Trying to get tickets for Glastonbury but if I can’t going to go Reading, just worried early bird won’t be available by April 28th (Glasto resale date)

You can buy them after your full ticket no problem, as they'll just send it as a seperate ticket. If they sell out I'm unsure if they'll be available elsewhere tbh. - Might be worth buying one now as they're only £20 and worst case you might be able to refund it?

Was unaware I was able to one on its own, thought it only came available with the main ticket so this is pretty much my problem solved.

Thanks for the help!

There will be plenty of people shifting early bird tickets nearer the festival. You can buy them separately from a weekend ticket and Twickets is the best bet if they sell out.

Pleasantly surprised by Dave's album. Some pretty decent storytelling, hadn't listened to him before. Assumed he'd be another Giggs or AJ Tracey, who i can't remember rapping about anything interesting on their albums.

Foals 1/2 of new album(s) pretty good too. 2020 headliner?

Clashfinder has changed the way they do statistics now (they only show %'s not the actual data) so I aint gonna keep track of stuff as closely this year, but for anyone interested this is the top 25 highlighted acts at the moment. Obviously slightly biased as acts from older announcements have more highlights but it'll do.

Kinda proves my point that Bastille are completely wasted on the R1 stage opposite Foos. They should switch with ADTR, with ADTR buried in the tent and Bastille an ideal Foos sub.

So having a band with much more popularity based on this headline a small space over an act with much less interest?. I can't see Foo's, ADTR and Shikari clashing going down well.

Nah, they should have switched Bastille and Mura Masa, I think Twenty One Pilots > Bastille would have been a popular combo whilst providing a better contrast to Post Malone.
