Anyone Going Reading This Year ?


Recommended Posts

Didn't The Futureheads play last year as well? Anyway, I expect it'll get better nearer the time. I wish they'd announce more bands for Glastonbury soon though, then I can decide.

As soon as they announced that they weren't having a dance tent, but a dance FIELD this year I was sold! Screw it if the main stages are a bit shit, this year's gonna be a mashup session to end all mashup sessions!

Oh, but the Chems might be playing the Other stage again this year (yet another reason I'll be there) And Basement Jaxx might be on the pyramid.

Stu - Don't be a touting nobber!

Didn't sell out the year before. Though. Hey Stu, if you tout tickets your a cunt, simple as.

And I have my Readng tickets. wooooooo!

He's right Stu. Don't do it.

Although, erm, I've bought 2 tickets to that Tom Jones birthday thing with the intention of selling them on. Maybe I'll give them to my ma and pa instead..

I refuse ever to return to Reading - been four times in the 90s but 1998 was the final straw that broke Hairy Jesus' back :)

The place is an utter rip-off - you can't take drinks into the arena - you have to buy them in there.

The place is a tip - rubbish everywhere - and this is not helped by the mountain of flyers and promotional junk that is given out over the three days. :)

The place is full of pesky kids - had to tell a group of lads off who were putting deoderant cans into a camp fire... made Hairy Jesus feel old. :angry:

Reading railway station - I am a customer and will not be forced to wait outside until the last minute to get my train. :angry:

The organisers always put big bands in the smaller tents... Hairy Jesus saw the Foo Fighters in 94 (I think) when they played their first UK gig in the small tent - needless to say, 60,000 people tried to get in to watch... rubbish! :angry:

Sorry to spoil your fun festie-goers.

That’s a fair set of comments there. It’s just your opinion though. I agree whole heartedly of course, but any chance to take drugs drink beer and act like I’m 15 again cannot be missed!

The whole line up for Leeds/Reading this year is bollocks to be honest. The only thing I want to see this time round is in the dance tent.. last year I wanted to see things on every stage.

Ah well it’ll still be a grand weekend!

Last year was awful for stupid kids. I remember finding a kid in 2000 who was celebrating his GCSE results and he was a great novelty. Last year the average age of kids was about 16, all of them getting drunk for the first time in their lives and acting KERRRRAAZZZY! All you could fucking hear and see was Green Day for the whole weekend. 2002 will never be beat!

Yeah there's loads of kids, but I first went when I was a kid at college, just a year after my GCSE's. And the line up is totally sweet: Go Team, Brtish Sea Power, Arcade Fire. Come ON! They're amazing scenes.

All I've got to decide now is do I camp with my uni mates or my brother and his massive gang- there are pros and cons on either side!
