Nobody there I would pay to see. It's not a good lineup is it.

That is an abysmal lineup yet again proving why people shouldn't buy festival tickets before lineups come out

Well good news, I don't have to go to Reading again (this year).

Bad news, no more foo dates

That lineup is poor though isn't it. KoL I would watch, saw them once many many years ago at V, when V was good. I've heard recently they're not that great live though after all my friends went to Hyde Park (I was off to Portugal for NOS)

Are they really definitely the headliners on the main stage? For reals?

Looks that way

Rumour has it that Foos dropped out hence the lack of a big headliner

I thought they called that Reading Rock Festival - now they have gone all out pop. That line up is unbelievably shit.

Glad there is absolutely nothing there that I'm missing bar Wolf Alice, who will be supporting the Foos in London.

If only! I did think that though as the font looks strange? But wow cant really see the festival coming back from this.

I guess Foos realised once you've played Glastonbury nothing compares

the sad truth is that the most exciting headliner is Kendrick Lamar... and I say that as a certified Rock Chick TM.

kind of sucks to be KOL or Fall Out Boy right now, given that everybody is calling out Reading for their shit line-up

wonder if the Foos did drop out? and if yes why why why oh why??

Those were my exact words earlier! Reading "ROCK" festival!

There's a comment online somewhere that referred to it being rap and grime that I misread as "crap grime"

So much for e festivals never being wrong. Glad I didn't buy a ticket now. That lineup is the worst reading has put out so far by far.

Do you think they waited this long to announce it because they were trying to sort headliners?

Or because they knew it was an utter disappointment and they wanted to sell as many tickets before people found out they were going to a Radio One event?

Bit of both. Helps that every other big festival is nearly sold out so there aren't many alternatives for people that have held out for tickets

Its a bit of a shame really, I did secretly enjoy it the past two years! Last year the lineup was really my taste. Maybe they're just trying to ensure the clientelle are all under 18 so they don't have to bother with having bars

I think we need CalJam UK I'm really disappointed in the R&L line-up. I was hoping they would announce something while they are over for the Brits next week 😔
