Head to Reading or Leeds to spend August Bank Holiday with a stellar line-up of guitar heroes.
The younger sister of Reading Festival, Leeds offers the same line up in a different order and an identiikit experience just a bit further north.
It and Reading are like the grand old dames of rock, to which anyone who has a vague interest in guitars needs to dance with at least once. More a passing out ceremony for the younger generation (expect plenty of teenagers off the parental leash for the first time), Reading and Leeds still pull in the biggest rock line up in the UK, supported by stages from NME and Radio 1.
This is big budget rock, sponsored up to the hilt. Nevertheless there’s something very English about spending the day moshing in a field of mud (probably) before heading back to a B&B (you can also camp) for a nice cuppa (or something stronger).
Pay an extra GBP30 for luxury toilets complete with hot water, vanity mirrors (to keep the emo make up in check) and perfume.
Full lineup here.
