Whats happening guys!
Today I have a slightly different kind of blog for you today. For the last few years now you will have found my August bank holiday weekend being spent at one of England’s largest festival. Reading and Leeds.
The festival itself is a rock festival and has some of the largest bands attending, with previous acts including, Green Day, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Queens of the Stone Age
I have attended this festival for about 4 years, but this year is different. Our usual tribe are not going this year, because of the appalling line up. As Reading Festival is a rock festival, you can imagine my disappointment when I hear the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Dua Lipa are attending. Both acts are incredible and I have seen Kendrick Lamar live which was sick, but he is not Reading festival material, and to add to the disrespect, they co headlined him with Panic at the Disco!!! Again, a fantastic band but not Reading Festival headline material and not good to have Panic on follow by Kendrick lamar, what kinda combo is that?!
The line up is truly shit, and as a dedicated Reading fest attendee, I am really disappointed in how relaxed they have gone. I have a feeling with Glastonbury festival being off this year, Reading fest has relaxed a little too much as there’s no pressure to make everyone attend. But its is a rock festival through and through and by including mainstream acts, it is not following its heart. Also why on earth are Kings Of Leon going, they are SO irrelevant.
Ok ok I’m ranting, and fair play if you like that music and are going, all thumbs up, but I love my music and my festivals, and when you see a festival grow to the level it is, following its true line of rock, only for mainstream pop to be in place, it’s quite disappointing.
Check out the line up below; what do you think?
Lots of love,
