View Full Version : Its a little early, but lets talk Reading/Leeds 2004


Cactus Sid

Yeah, thought anyway who might be going could talk about who could potentially be there, any rumours going around or anything like that.

Obviously, The White Stripes will be there, if Jack White isn't in prison, and Muse have already confirmed they will be doing a festival tour this summer, and I heard Zane Lowe say Muse have confirmed they will play, so I think Muse is a pretty safe bet.

Also, a lot of the Warped Tour bands tend to come over for the festival, so maybe Thursday to headline Concrete Jungle

The Destroyer
12-28-2003, 07:22 PM
Yeah, Muse seem to be doing some of the festivals... they're playing T In The Park up here at the start of July, along with the Darkness and David Bowie (waaaaaay more names to come).

Reading and Leeds never bothers me, what I'm more interested in are the odd rumours of a Scottish leg for Download in 2004. :love:

Cactus Sid
12-28-2003, 08:50 PM
Apparently, Metallica have confirmed for Download, and Korn and Slipknot are supposed to be playing as well.

It does.

Or was that a statement... hard to say.

01-24-2004, 02:52 PM
I think Pearl Jam would be a good headliner, doubt it'll happen but seeing how they released that b side/rarities album recently and an album in 2002 its about time they came back over here

The Destroyer
01-24-2004, 03:24 PM
It does.

Or was that a statement... hard to say.
It's not actually been officially confirmed by the organisers, so it's hard to tell what shape it'll take. Although info so far is that it'll be June 2nd (a Wednesday :wtf: ) and that Metallica and Machine Head have stated they're playing (along with the main Download festival).

Rob
01-25-2004, 06:36 AM
It's 99% confirmed now and it's June 6th in Glasgow. Korn are meant to be topping with limpbizkit in the semi spot.

The Destroyer
01-25-2004, 06:53 AM
Not what I've heard. :o

Metallica and Machine Head have both confirmed they'll be in Glasgow on June 2nd, and there's rumours that there'll be something on June 3rd as well. Sadly enough, the rumours for the other bands are Linkin Park, Korn, Slipknot and (not so bad) Audioslave. :-\

Whatever's happening, there's supposedly going to be an official announcement next week.

Mike the Metal Ed

Well how many festivals do you think are on a Wednesday?

Bizkit and Korn are almost certain to play the top spots. I'd love to see Metallica, Linkin Park and Audioslave though.

Rob

Basically, if I go to Glasgow, I'll go back to Dundee after it's done and actually be able to get some sleep (and I'll probably go with my cousins) while if I go to Donnington, it involves way more organisation for my liking.

Rob
01-29-2004, 03:35 PM
In a "I looked like a stupid cu</>nt" moment, the Glasgow leg is indeed on a Wednesday and Thursday. Linkin Park and Metallica only confirmed acts right now. I'd think Bizkit and Korn will top the other night.

The Destroyer
01-29-2004, 03:51 PM
Linkin Park and Metallica are on different nights. :p

Korn probably will play though, their name's been thrown around alot

Cactus Sid

On the Reading front, in a not especially suprising note, The White Stripes apparently confirmed last night that they would be playing

Cactus Sid
02-05-2004, 04:22 PM
Reading pre-sale tickets are on-sale now, but they're £105 + Booking fee

Cactus Sid

Apparently The Darkness have been confirmed

Danny Electric

I'll probably go to one day of both festivals as I can't afford any weekends.

Cactus Sid
02-19-2004, 04:32 PM
Not with another 15-20 quid lumped onto the price of the tickets, go to Reading on the Saturday (Concrete Jungle :cool: )

I think the headliners will be something like, Muse, White Stripes, Darkness, Offspring, Green Day and Beastie Boys

Yeah that was the day i was planning to go. I know what you meant about the price, it's getting stupid now.
But I'll probably get dragged along by my ex to see Korn if they play Donnigton. I went to the weekend at Donnington last year and thought it was good.

But so far I hat The White Stripes and The Darkness so it looks like I want to miss them.

Unlikely that both of them will play. I could see one or the other headlining the Sunday (Reading) and Friday (Leeds) with The Darkness, but I thought AC/DC were gonna play Download.

Without doubt, the most horrible line-up I've ever seen.

Download for me this year me-thinks.

The Destroyer
03-29-2004, 10:00 AM
The only thing that usually appeals to me about the Reading lineup are some of the tents. I never usually like the look of the main stage, this year seems to be no different...

Cactus Sid
03-29-2004, 11:27 AM
I quite like the line-up to be honest, not neccessarily because my favourite bands are there, but purely because I think it would be an experience to see some of them.

The Darkness were great last year, it'll be interesting to see if they can hold together an 1 1/2 or 2 hour set, I used to love The Offspring so they'll be good to see, and Ash have got some good songs.

Saturday's Concrete Jungle, so I'll probably be in there most of the day, but The White Stripes might be worth seeing, The Libertines will be brilliant if Pete's still with them, and Morrissey should be amazing.

As for Sunday, couldn't give a sh</>it about 50 cent, but you can't always get what ya want, I'm sure there will be plenty of people who will want to see him, and Green Day will be definetly be amazing, and will certainly be my highlight of the festival.

JJ Moore
03-29-2004, 08:22 PM
Download weekend for me maybe, or just day to see slipknot, slayer and tallica, and day ticket to go see offspring and the darkness at reading.

Fabien Barthez
03-29-2004, 10:11 PM
It still totally jobs to IOW but hey, lets compare.

Headliners

IOW
The Who
David Bowie
Stereophonics

Carling weekend
Greenday
Darkness
White Stripes

I'm not the worlds biggest GD fan if im honest, so they wouldn't make me buy a ticket, Whites ive been wanting to see for ages so at very least I will go for the one day they are on. Darkness were brilliant when I saw them last year but I have reservations that an outdoor gig to 50,000 people would bee as goot as 3,000 in the Manchester Apollo.

Isle of wight has the Who, class. Bowie (who I saw a few years back) sheer class and the Phonics (who I saw in December) more class.

Winner - I O W

Support

CW

Offspring
Morrissey
Arthur Dollar

IOW

Groove Armada
Manic Street Preachers
Charlatans

I wouldn't lose any sleep over missing the Offspring, Morrissey has some good recent stuff, and if he played Charming Man or How Soon is Now i'd go mental, but he is booking Meltdown which he will play with the New York Dolls so I'd go see him there. And 50 Cent? Hopefully he follows suit with JayZ and cancels.

Groove Armada wouldn't be too bad as the sun is going down and you laying down with a joint but not my first choice of bands Id see. Manics and the Charlatans are both equally quality. Im into Indie and British rock so for me..

Winner - IOW

Various Others

CW

Ash
Hives
Franz Ferdinand
Libertines

IOW

Jet
Snow Patrol
Libertines
Suzanne Vega
Electric Soft Parade
British Sea Power

Although Id like to see The Hives and Franz, IOW has 3 of the biggest bands of the last 9-12 months in Libertines Jet and Snow Patrol. Suzanne Vega rules also and the others are good for the early shifts so I think hands down

Winner - IOW

Now dont get me wrong, T in the Park totally pisses on every other festival this year, and so does that cool Irish festival that I forget the name of but, thats life.

Thats my take on it.

Metallica

Machinehead
