    Umm...50 Cent? Apparently, though, he's the grumpiest person ever if he gets bottled, and if he gets bottled at Leeds he might refuse to even play Reading...
    not sure about him, i doubt i'll watch him but I think he has enough fans there, i dont think he will be bottled. The Rasmus are the most likely because they are seen as too pop/commercial(a bit like Good Charlotte last year)

    Ouch that's the worst festival line-up i've ever seen, should have gone to V methinks.

    Muse + The Strokes > God awful Reading/Leeds lineups.

    muse = best live band ever!

    jamelia = ****e

    Jamie Cullum's version of Radiohead's 'High and Dry' was ace (and it helps that he's pretty cute too!). Agree about Badly Drawn Boy, I watched the first 3 songs before me and my friend decided he was crap (and a bit of a knob too) so we went to the bar instead!

    The Channel 4 coverage of V was absolutely ****. Ive already emailed and complained at them. There were only 2 bands I would have watched if I had gone (hence not paying £100 for a ticket...) they are Muse and The Pixies. Now they did show a bit of muse on sat night (2songs :rolleyes: ) but absolutely no sigh or even mention of the pixies on sunday! and they were co-headlining! It was the last date in the Uk of their 96 date world reunion tour! Why wouldnt they show it? its insane.


    [/rant]

    Anyway, all the major ticketing companies have issued weather warnings for Reading ticket holders in the last few hours and Mean Fiddler have also just updated the official site at http://www.readingfestival.com.

    ITS GON' RAIN!
