"We’re off to a good start, probably the first Reading Festival where we haven’t arrived to inches of mud throughout, and the wellies can stay put in the tents. Typically know to be a proper “rock” festival, this year the organisers have booked something for everyone ranging from Harlem rapper Azealia Banks to beardy metalers Mastodon. Every touring band of the moment seems to be on the line up and we find ourselves hotfooting it all over the site seeing more than thirty bands over the three days."
