The Sherlocks isn’t a secret set if they’ve just announced it :lol: nor is scarlxrd. They’re just filling in gaps. 

*edit* 

I’ve just seen The Sherlocks’ tweet. Yeah, they’re actually a secret set aren’t they. Wow. 

They are maybe just filling the FR slot newly vacated by SWMRS?  The way it says "exciting news on the way" looks like there is a proper announcement to follow.

Can imagine they'd be the sort of band (R&L regulars) who would step in at the last minute rather than be lined up as the secret set long ago.  The Xcerts probably keep the van engine running at this time every year in case they get the call.

(edit - just seen the other thread, that they are playing Victorious on Sunday which rules them out of the SMWRS slot - they are actually going to be a secret set aren't they)

Posted this in the leedsfest reddit but worth a go here. Been to reading a few times but not leeds. Ive got a friend who is driving from up north to the fest, ill be getting the train in and then hopefully shuttle in. I have both his ticket and early pass, how hard would it be to meet him before entering the fest? Or what is a suitable plan to go around this

So with the The Sherlocks basically confirmed as a secret set, guessing for the FR Stage, fist of all what size crowd do people think they are going to get, and how are they going to go down with the crowd?

Secondly other than that are the other most popular guesses for secret sets, IDLES for the pit, and Kasabian to possibly open the Radio 1 stage?

I think we’re going to have to give up on the big Radio 1 Stage secret set

Agree that R1 secret set is probably not gonna happen, but I do at least think we'll get The S.L.P. or something - maybe he'll do a few Kasabian covers.

Really hope it is Idles on the pit, can see it being Neck Deep though

So there’s been some changes at Reading this year if you’re interested. Mostly minor technical stuff but here we go.

day ticket holders are back at 20,000 per day so despite this years increase in capacity the campsites should feel more spacious 

entry review tents are back in place if you get caught with your stash your entrance will be reviewed 

both red and orange silent arenas are open on Thursday evening.

see you tomorrow :) 

edit: oh yeah and there’s chicken nuggets

Sherlocks secret set is legitimately meme worthy.

Who on earth thought they'd pull a decent crowd for one?

They better be on BBC intro stage like Peace last year of I feel it may be embarrassing.

Ahhh fair play.

Obviously because they have a secret set so massive that they can't even hint it to staff ;)

Might still be on BBC intro, we don’t have any info on where/when yet. 

Dont think the crowd will be too bad, previous sets they’ve had at Reading had a decent enough attendance

The Sherlocks are easily big enough to be playing a half hour set at 5pm on the FR. Anyone who claims that as a “disappointment” is deluding themselves.

On the app it says that there’s just a gap where SWMRS were. Surely too late to get a secret set in so do we reckon there’s just gonna be a massive gap between Basement and Crystal fighters?

I'm guessing those that are claiming it is a disappointment were expecting Kasabian or Biffy on the FR 😃

Just think they haven't adjusted the timings properly yet. I doubt they'll be able to fill the gap now, unless they get a band already playing elsewhere that day to do double duty
