Our mission: to go to Reading/Leeds and to see as many bands as possible and then for each member of staff to write one to three sentences per band. If lots of people saw one band, you get lots of opinions. Hopefully we'll cover everything.
Here goes with the Carling Stage where all those new bands try to make a name for themselves; where you discover your next favourite band. The Reindeer Section, Jetplane Landing, Pretty Girls Make Graves, Span & thisGIRL are featured.
Next up is that tent in the middle which kept changing. 1st it was The Boutique, then it was The Concrete Jungle Stage and finally it was the Dance Tent. Well despite not being able to decide what it was, Aphex Twin, Peaches, The Get Up Kids, Thursday & The Streets all appear!
The giant double-domed Evening Session Tent is where the established bands and the much hyped bands alike will have plied their trade over the weekend. Check out what we thought of 2 Many DJs, The Von Bondies, The Icarus Line, ...Trail of Dead & Sparta.
Now for the big one. It's The Main Stage. It's the big boys' playground. All the egos combine here for a mammoth showdown. This is where the real entertainers come out of hiding. You're playing to 40,000 people. Find out how Weezer, The White Stripes, The Dandy Warhols, Foo Fighters, Muse & Andrew WK did on their big day out.
