Usually I'm kinda jealous of these UK festivals but that doesn't really impress me.

It'd be cool to see some of them, but nothing that really jumps out at me and makes me think, "damn, I gotta go to that show!"

I'd rather go to Wango Tango...

What ever happened to Rage just reuniting for a few select shows in the US, man they really are sell outs.

the whole point of becoming a band is to get your music out to the fans...and make money while doing it...they are quite good at it.

I'd take Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers any day over Metallica and Rage Against the Machine.

Yea Rage totally just love money now. It's not even about the message they claim they are spreading

Pretty boring line up if you ask me...and wtf is up with Slipknot playing? And why would anyone want to see the Killers headline?

Sushov23
03-31-2008, 12:32 PM
the killers are huge in europe. I had two foreign exchange students from the UK last year in one of my classes and we got to talking about bands in the UK. One of the bands they mentioned was The Killers, and how a lot of people liked them over there. So I get why the killers are headliners in europe

Boourns
03-31-2008, 12:44 PM
Yeah. I remember the old days when the bands that headlined festivals in Europe but not in America were good.

But Reading/Leeds lineups are always interesting. Always some great acts, bundled with a lot of WTF crap and disposable NME bands. In 2000 they had Pulp, Oasis, Muse, "Elliot" Smith, Beck, Rage, etc, but also Limp Bizkit.

This is where 50 Cent got bottled off the stage, yes?

paulb
03-31-2008, 12:47 PM
dont forget Rock Am Ring 2001, with Radiohead/Limp Bizkit playing back to back

Boourns
03-31-2008, 12:53 PM
OMG, seriously? Wow, that must have been the worst thing ever.

JClemy
03-31-2008, 12:54 PM
oh Limp Bizkit. You sucked so hard!

I saw Metallica play at the Reading Festival in the late 90's. They sucked.

03-31-2008, 12:57 PM
Limp Bizkit, did they ever announce they were breaking up back in the day? I just remember hearing about them all the time to never hearing about them again.

paulb
03-31-2008, 01:00 PM
Limp bizkit never broke up... Wes left in 2001...they did their guitar tour, got Mike Smith in 03... did results may vary... Mike left in 05, Wes came back, did The Unquestionable Truth part 1.... he left again...and now they have no guitarrist...

Seeing Tenacious D billed right below Metallica makes me giddy with joy. That is fucking awesome. Seeing Tenacious D play right before Metallica would be fucking amazing.

JClemy
03-31-2008, 01:37 PM
I would also like to see Tenacious D. Now I understand why it sold out. It sold out for the METAL!

Didn't they do a 5 song set at Coachella a few years back?

JClemy

Isn't this the fest where one band gets bottled off the stage every year?

shakermaker113
03-31-2008, 08:24 PM
Didn't they do a 5 song set at Coachella a few years back?

yeah, I think it was a surprise (i.e. unbilled, a la kanye) set in 2002.


Isn't this the fest where one band gets bottled off the stage every year?

yup! don't know about every year. I think James Brown once got bottled of stage at reading. and it's usually bottles of piss, not just bottles. talk about harsh.

The Reading lineup has been fairly shit for years now. There will be some decent acts on the smaller stages, but not enough to make you want to part with close to $350.

I'm not sure who plays Reading more. Metallica or Foo Fighters.

Hey, i didn't say it was good - just that it had sold out already. I'd rather force my eyes out with rusty spoons than watch 90% of those acts.

Yeah KOL and AM are two of the biggest acts out there... Sadly.

Go to efestivals forum, people are whining that the Glasto headliners suck (Blur reunion, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, for the record).

kings of leon are considered like a u.s version of Oasis and they have connected with the u.k big time!! they are massive over there.. its starting to happen for them here.. i would not be surprised if they headline a night at coachella next year.. they are a good band. i dont think they are great though.....

and the u.s.a. had plenty of crap here too. it evens out! :)

I don't understand the KOL thing either, but yes, they sell like fuck.

And yeah, Reading is notoriously unforgiving. Bands get booed and bottled as a matter of course.


While the mass-participation can and bottle fights of the 1970s and 1980s have long since ended, the Reading Festival 'tradition' of unpopular bands being bottled off (being forced off stage by a barrage of audience-thrown plastic bottles and cans) has continued throughout its history.[27]

The 1983 reggae act Steel Pulse suffered possibly the most vicious bottling-off ever seen at the Festival, before or since, disappearing within moments of appearing on stage under an avalanche of missiles launched by the temporarily united ranks of punks and rockers waiting to see The Stranglers.

In 1988 Bonnie Tyler bravely completed her set despite an unending barrage of bottles, turf and litter. Unfortunately, the day's headliner Meat Loaf was not so brave, retreating ingloriously only 20 minutes into his set after taking a 2-litre cider bottle full in the face.[28]

In 2000, Daphne and Celeste were inexplicably scheduled between Slipknot and Rage Against The Machine after bullying their manager to get on the bill,[29] and were bottled off after 2 songs.[30]

In 2005, it was the turn of rapper 50 Cent, who was pelted with bottles.[31] 50 Cent lasted nearly 20 minutes before finally throwing his microphone into the crowd in anger. The Rasmus were also bottled off following one song.[32]

In 2006 at Reading, Panic at the Disco lead singer Brendon Urie was struck in the face with a plastic bottle, knocking him unconscious and forcing the band to stop mid-song. Urie received treatment from his road crew for several minutes, then the band continued from the point at which their song was interrupted.[33] Later the same day, and again on the main stage Fall Out Boy incited a bottle fight in the crowd, making reference to the earlier event. Despite this, Panic at the Disco still returned the next year.

In 2008, a crowd of approximately 3,000 people attended the BBC Introducing Stage to see unsigned band 'The FF'ers', after rumours that it would actually be a secret Foo Fighters gig were spread around the festival. The FF'ers were subsequently bottled when members of the audience realised that the rumours were not true.The subsequent band was also bottled off stage due to the crowd's disappointment. Also in 2008, screamo band Bring Me The Horizon were called in to play in the place of Avenged Sevenfold, who were unable to play due to "vocal strain". They were pelted with bottles by angry Avenged Sevenfold fans.

Panic at the Disco:

7YHLPjEQL0A

It must be stated for the record that Brendon Urie made a better effort to continue than Meatloaf or many others did, and deserves credit for that if nothing else.

There are a lot of festivals here. Some of them have to be shite. It's normally a toss up between Reading and V for the worst - and they sell out the fastest too. I've not touched Reading since the days that Nirvana and Pulp were still playing there.

I'll stick to Coachella and Primavera (and Latitude and Pukkelpop and possibly Oya)

L7, didn't they play The Word with their pants down?

I miss The Word. It was filmed very close to where i used to live, and i was in the studio audience on numerous occasions. Although the show was trash, the bands i got to see were ace. Shaun Ryder and Zippy sharing a stage was even better than Nirvana.

Actually, Radiohead and FNM are really the only 2 bands at Reading/Leeds I would care about seeing.

If I was heading to Europe for FNM, I would probably hit up Rock En Seine. (http://www.rockenseine.com/2009/line-up.php) Faith No More, Madness and The Prodigy all in the same weekend.
