Leeds & Reading

 


I couldn't resist saying something about this. As anyone English will know, this weekend was the annual Leeds & Reading festival. Always one of the best of the festival season in the UK. How I wish I could have gone this year. But alas, due to a lack of money at the time tickets were released, I could not go. 

However,  the BBC did manage to provide quite good coverage of the festival. Not on television of course, they only really showed the headliners, some of which were good, others not so good. Fingers pointing at Blink 182 here.

One of my favourite performances from the festival has to be Band Of Horses. On the back of their third album, they gave a brilliant set. Link is above. Give it a watch and see what you think.

Many other brilliant artists performed. The reformation of the Libertines was a spectacle to behold. Queens of the Stone Age were on top form as usual. Josh Homme never disappoints. And of course the newly blonde Simon Neil of the fantastic Biffy Clyro. The list is too long to name all of the good bands. 

Have a look yourself!
