    Did any of you guys go to reading festival what were the best worst parts for you acts,camping etc?

    For me I really was nicely surprised by The Virginmarys and will definitely see them again.

    Having A$AP Rockey on the main stage with such a long set was a really bad idea IMO he would have been a better fit to headline the one extra or dance stage.

    The highlight had to be Biffy and Fallout boy both had a hits set and pulled out some of the new tracks which worked really well with the older songs.

    I really think the arena needs better lighting and sign posts so a sign post pointing to green red an the site exit and then pointing to the camp sites (yes I to lost).

    All in all though it was a really good show and I'm looking forward to next year (if the line up's good)

    p.s. I only had a Sunday ticket so I'm interested to hear about Friday and Saturday as well.

    Didn't make it to Leeds but saw Biffy/FOB at their Glasgow Summer Sessions set, blew my mind!

    Wasn't there, but I was hoping the Crystal Castles set would be better than people are saying it was.

    They dropped a new album a few weeks ago with a new vocalist after Alice Glass left, but judging from their performance at Reading, it seems like most people probably won't give her a chance.
