Reading Festival

Fucking incredible. Met so many great people, listened to so much awesome music and drank copious amounts of booze. Epic shit.
1Arcade Fire
Funeral


Not just the best show of the entire festival but probably the best i've had the pleasure of attending. Simply mindblowingly good. Played all their best songs (apart from In The Back Seat >:[ ) in an epic set. Amazing.
2Weezer
The Blue Album


There was a lot of speculation as to what material they would play and while they played not a single song from Pinkerton and missed many of their best songs (Only In Dreams, In The Garage etc), this show was fucking amazing. Rivers was the man
3 Frank Turner
Love Ire and Song


Fuck, i suppose Frank is also a close joint 2nd. This guy is just a natural show man and his usually infectious songs were turned into nothing less than anthems.
4Phoenix
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix


The atmosphere in the NME tent was great, the light show was fucking trippy. 1901 was so fucking good.
5Queens of the Stone Age
Songs For The Deaf


Even though i had never listened to this band before the festival i was completely enticed by the strength of their set. One intense show.
6 Gaslight Anthem
The '59 Sound


It took a couple songs for Fallon to get into the groove but once he did the band owned the stage. The '59 Sound was such a good ending to the set.
7Los Campesinos!
Romance is Boring


Would have enjoyed this infinitely more if they played more off Romance is Boring as I?m not familiar with any of their other stuff, which seemed to be in contrary with the rest of the crowd. As it stood The Sea is a Good Place was brilliant.
8Thrice
The Artist in the Ambulance


Not enough IoS and TAitA for my liking but still a very solid show indeed.
9 Gogol Bordello
Super Taranta!


Very energetic, very fun to watch.
10 Magnetic Man
Magnetic Man


WOMWOMWOM
11Modest Mouse
The Moon & Antarctica


Didn?t play very much at all that I recognised, it was okay
12Dizzee Rascal
Boy in Da Corner


Cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit was bare lols, in the good way.
13Blink-182
Blink-182


I?ve never been a huge of them and so being surrounded by 100,000 fan boys and Tom Delonge?s whiny piece of shit voice intruding my ears I can?t say I enjoyed them immensely.
14 Young Guns
Whatever shitty album they have


Wet for the lols but none where had. Terrible.
15Streetlight Manifesto
Somewhere in the Between


Yet another brilliant set.
