If you look at the Wikipedia article on the Reading and Leeds festivals, you will see it has a list of bands. For the ones from 2004 to 1999 I composed these, based on random sources. The lists are rather inconsistent, e.g. for 2001 I list 6 bands, of which the 1st, 3rd and 6th were the actual headliners. For 2004 I list 9 bands, of which the 1st, 4th and 7th bands were the actual headliners.

The Reading Festival program for 2005 has an identical list. With the exact same bands, in the exact same order. The thieves!

Just arrived back from Reading, which I attended with [livejournal.com profile] secretlondon Was excellent. Bumped into [livejournal.com profile] emmadacockney at St Pancras who kept me company on the trains and train replacement bus service back.

The bands I saw :-

Thursday: went to the Rising Sun to see some random bands. Whilst there met a chap named Pete who knows my ex-colleague Ez who used to hang out there. Small world syndrome!

Friday: Goldie Lookin' Chain (the end of), Wedding Present (again, having seen them at Summer Sundae), the end of the Dropkick Murphies, the Subways, The Coral, Queens of the Stone Age (for the first time since 1999), The Killers, Pixies.

Saturday: All-American Rejects (the end of), Roots Manuva, Dinosaur Jr, The Charlatans, Hot Hot Heat, The Caesars, Sleater-Kinney, part of Babyshambles, Foo Fighters.

Sunday: The Modern (upon the advice of [livejournal.com profile] greeba), Art Brut (the third time this year), Hot Chip (again), VHS or Beta, the end of Funeral for a Friend, NoFX, The Stooges, Incubus, Marilyn Manson, Iron Maiden.

Pixies were great. Kim Deal's grin was probably bigger than her.

Foo Fighters also good. Dave Grohl drummed during one song and let Taylor song, which apparently marks the first time Dave has drummed at Reading in 13 years.

Iron Maiden also good! Set consisted entirely of songs from their first four albums, (of which only a few from their 3rd). They have three guitarists now, apart from their bassists, and they run around the stage in formation like crazy people.

May post more notes later. But thoroughly good!
