    Im sure the searching thing will be stricter, but there is no way in hell that they can thoroughly search every item of luggage that goes into the festival. Personally i will be getting my wristband tomorrow and bringing my stuff on friday, so i should bypass the search by going through the main gates. Not that i have anything to hide, apart from deoderant i guess, but not too bothered about that anyway.

    I'm leaving my dry shampoo at home and gonna try and find a little bottle :yes::sad:

    I look so silly with my 65l bag and carrier bag of food. My friend laughs now, but she has a tiny tiny bag for her back and has to carry her tent, sleeping bag and roll mat in hand.. and so she's going to have a bag back at the end of all this :yep:

    hi guys, just a quick question

    this is my first reading festival and ill be travelling by train with my sleeping bag, clothes and alcohol and walking to the site and meeting my friends who arrived at the site today. because i cant take alcohol into the main arena how easy will it be to find them outside of the arena? i think theyre camping in yellow. any specific landmarks i should head for?

    also when i arrive do i just go in through the red camp entrance and make my way along and around the main arena? how long is the walk from red to yellow?


    thanks!

    Hmmm I sold my tickets for this due to the mass amount of Indie landfill playing.

    But starting to regret not going due to Faith No More

    Actually after watching Florence and the Machine I don't regret it, about £300 saved there.

    Kings of Leon were amazing of course, just as good as they were when I saw them last year and I really wish I was there tonight, they really were phenomenal. Was actually very pleased with BBC's coverage as well, they showed a good hour out of an hour and a half set which is pretty good for them, uisually they'd barely show a couple of songs from any of the artists, but that was quite decent, hope its the same for radiohead

    Really? http://www.nme.com/news/kings-of-leon/47008 "Reading? What the ****? Zero love for the kings. I know it was cold but holy ****, y'all were frozen."

    I've seen them at Reading before (actually live, rather than on TV!) and was very impressed. Last night on the TV I thought they looked a bit bored, and at some moments they seemed to be talking to each other between songs and shaking their heads. Then they cut away from KOL saying that the band "weren't happy with their performance and didn't want any more of the footage to be shown".

    Personally I felt that their earlier albums sounded much better live than their new album, with the exception of Sex on Fire. I couldn't believe it when they cracked out Molly's Chambers, was dead excited. But I think KOL have brought it upon themselves- in my opinion the new songs are just quite boring, bland and mainstream - it fails to excite the crowd and hence you'll end up with a poor reception. They can hardly blame the fans.
