LBQ goes to Reading Festival

So I’ve spent the last five days living in a tent, drinking far too much, eating far too little and drying my hands out with hygiene gel. Reading Festival has become somewhat something of a tradition for me; I’ve been going to practically every year since 2005. I love everything about it, from the little boat you have to get up the river, to the cramming in of the NME tent, to the stench of stale beer on day three and the awesome closing act on the Sunday night. This year some of my favourite bands (new and old) were playing, including Foo Fighters, Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines, The Maccabees, Niki and the Dove, Feeder and The Black Keys. Best of all though was a surprise set from my all time fave rockers Green Day… Rumours had been going around for a few days before so we kept our ears to the floor. Somehow we managed to figure out when and where they were playing, shot down to the NME tent first thing on Saturday and managed to be one of the first there, giving us an awesome view and an even better experience. Totally worth dragging myself up and out earlier than I’ve ever been up at Reading, especially with a mild hangover. I thought you might like to see some of my snaps from this weekend… Here’s LBQ’s Reading Festival in pics!

    That looks amazing! I went to Reading in 2004 (Green Day, woo!), 2005 and 2006 and loved it! I sort of feel a bit put off going again because it tends to be such a young crowd, but I think maybe I need to get over that and return next year! Sounds like you had an ace time…xx
