Reading Festival Reading Festival

Reading Festival Header
Reading festival is one of the Uk's biggest Rock festivals. Once a mainstream rock/heavy rock festival it now opens its arms up to the indie rock and mixed rock scene with a varied lineup, an excellent dance arena as well. This is one not to be missed. This festival always pulls big acts in to make their lineup that little bit better. 

This year’s headliners have to be seen to be believed. The most exciting act taking to the main stage is undoubtedly super-group The Cure, who hit the stage on Friday. 2012 marks the band’s first set at the Reading Festival for 33 years. Other acts headlining on Friday include the dreamy Bombay Bicycle Club, raucous You Me At Six and the chaotic electronic duo of Crystal Castles.

Saturday promises to be just as spectacular as Friday, as festival favourites Kasabian take the floor alongside contemporaries Enter Shikari and Blood Red Shoes. The enigmatic Florence + The Machine’s complex lyrics and soaring melodies are the perfect ice breaker for indie kids The Shins and Mystery Jets. The Vaccines and Odd Future Wolf Game Kill Them All promise to break up the sets with their unique takes on modern punk and grimy street beats.

Closing off the main stage on Sunday is Dave Grohl and the boys of the Foo Fighters – a legendary live act, the Foos wowed crowds at T in the Park last year and look set to do the same with their new material for Reading Festival. The quirky funky sounds of The Black Keys, riotous cries of the Kaiser Chiefs and self-referential rock of The Eagles of Death Metal will also flow freely from the main stage on the last day of the festival.

Rumours still abound that Katy B and Metronomy could be making an appearance and announcements are still sneaking out all the time, so keep your eye on this page to stay abreast of all the developments to Reading Festival 2012’s line-up.

A great rock festival with a brilliant mix of artist's.
