Reading and Leeds 2018


#21

I’m refusing to believe Ski Mask The Slump God is a thing. They’ve made that up. No amount of evidence to the contrary will convince me otherwise.


#22

It’s pretty amazing how many grime and rap artists are on there though. Back when I was going as a teenager it was rare to see any black artists on the on the lineup.


#23

line up looks good to me. could go to that and have a good time if were not for all the boisterous young people enjoying themselves being unbearably young and boisterous


#24

Or in the crowd tbh. (I went once, in 91)


#25

Remember seeing 50 Cent getting bottled off in 2004 and deciding this probably wasn’t the thing for me so didn’t go again.


#26

Do 14 year olds still like Fall Out Boy and Kings of Leon? Isn’t that a bit like kids from the 90s liking hair metal?


#27

not really sure. FOB have a new album out; no idea how it’s performing with the kids. They joint headlined with Biffy just 2 years ago and drew a reasonable but hardly significant crowd.


#28

i’d never have guessed fall out boy as a headliner this year

they were never big enough to headline when emo was a big mainstream thing, so why now?


#29

dua lipa and sum 41 would be an incredibly funny run to see but I’m almost 30 ffs
there are no teenagers who like sum 41


#30

Getting annoyed at this though is like that NME thread. Sure it was good once but its changed to appeal to a broader demographic. Im sure when Blur headlined in 2001 , people who went to Reading in 1990 were shaking their heads


#31

yeah, me neither, I thought it’d be Kendrick, Paramore, The 1975/Arctic Monkeys/Foo Fighters. especially as they did it 2 years ago. They had a lot of explosions and fire on stage from memory; maybe that’s what the kids these days want - I guess The PotUSA were right.


#32

I made a playlist featuring each of the acts to get hyped for how much fun I’m going to have


#33

Mate. That falloutboy record is one of the worst things I’ve ever heard. You might want to remove that off of the playlist.


#34

it’s my song of the year!

I know it’s just a number but you’re the 8th wonder! it’s amazing


#35

Enjoy Pendulum, etc.


#36

Fall Out Boy completely reinvented themselves as some shithouse Black Eyed Peas of rock music when they came back a few years ago - sampling massive songs and just generally being even more awful than they were the first time round. They got fuckloads of Radio 1 play out of it though so now they’re probably bigger than ever.


#37

This is what they sound like now


#38

fuck me


#39

Kind of. They were everything I despised about music 10 years ago but have since dropped some of their forced NME/ Skins kid quirkiness and wrote some unashamedly great indie pop: https://youtu.be/nNh51G84WZY


#40

I’m old but somehow there are bands on there that were shit when I was a teenager. Who the fuck is going to see Papa Roach and Sum 41 in 2018.
