    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.

    well yeah it's no bad

    thought jamie cullum was good

    Strokes = good

    muse = best live band ever!

    jamelia = shite

    badly drawn boy - shite

    all of the festivals are so average this year

    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.

    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!
