    Default Reading & Leeds 2012

    We just got the announcement today, some decent acts for the first announcment The Cure, ATDI, Black Keys, Justice, Foo Fighters, The Shins, SBTRKT etc. Full line-up:



    Even though theres quite a few decent acts, theres some seriously over placed bands like Bombay Bicycle Club and The Vaccines, still loads more to announce though.

    This reminds me of how shocking it is to see Kasabian buried so low into the Coachella poster given that they actually headline UK festivals like this one.

    They're all right, i personally wouldnt pick them to headline, but yeah, if theres no clashes seeing them in gobi or wherever theyre gonna put them, would be pretty decent.

    I wonder if The Cure actually listens to and likes any of those bands that are listed below them.

    Yeah it does look confusing, apparently they've mixed the styles up on purpose this year to force people to buy weekend tickets instead of day tickets. If you look at line-ups of past years each day has made more sense.

    Hope we get Robert Smith coming out for Not In Love, although I highly doubt it.
