    Used to be such a great festival as well. Tragic how grim it has become.

    I can't tell if Leeds/Reading has become absolute dogshit, or whether I've gotten to the age where I just don't know what modern mainstream music is.

    I've heard of in total, 11 bands there.

    Horrific, and a pale imitation of what it used to be.

    It was digshit when u went about 2004.

    That line up is baffling. Or did I just get old?

    No wonder the likes of Reading and Glasto flog tickets before announcing lineups when their events are as shit as this

    I'm asking myself the same thing. The bands I recognise are mostly bands that have been around since I was a teenager. Kendrick Lamar is by far and away the biggest act they've got there mind.

    2004 had some great acts as well

    The Offspring
    The White Stripes
    The Distillers
    Green Day
    Franz Ferdinand
    Dropkick Murphys
    The Von Bondies
    Taking Back Sunday

    There's grime and rap artists all over that

    not what people go to Reading/Leeds to see

    Going the same way as V Festival which was glorious around the turn of the century but slowly became a glorified Radio One roadshow

    From this -

    Tons of the fringey emo shite that was popular when I was at school.

    2 more than me, then again, I'm old.
  18. I agree it's awful, but haway, I'm 50 and I've heard of, I think, 18 of them. Not that I like most of them, but surely at your age you've heard of more than 11?

    10 for me although I can only name songs from 3 of them
