Reading and Leeds Festival 2020

There’s some good stuff in there, but it’s utterly shocking they can announce 18 headliners and only one of them be a woman. also, there’s like, two? playing the main stage so far.

The hip hop on that bill is great

(everything else sucks apart from Rage which is a big get)

Also yeah its kinda amazing how few female artists there are on that bill

is the Lock Up Stage now just always Gallows, The Bronx and Cancer Bats?

I’m sure there’s some other good stuff, but still.

Saturday headliner is an Oasis kareoke act. Bleak.

Yeah there is smatterings of stuff I’d like to see outside of the hip hop, I’d bolt it for Georgia to get a good spot for example, but a lot of faceless indie rock.

Yeah, the indie element is just so insipid.

Across the Radio 1 stage for all three days, I recognise 2 bands (Idles and Fontaines) the rest I assume all don’t exist.

Feel quite sorry for the Bronx, they deserve better.

Oh, fuck off Gerry Cinnamon.

What is a Gerry Cinnamon? I assumed it was a joke name

I thought Fontaines DC and Idles would be headlining a stage to be honest.

They changed the name from Golden Grahams to Gerry Cinnamon about 15 years ago.

Why are Danny Brown and Denzel Curry at the bottom and Liam Gallagher at the top please?

Sent to me from Reading, Gerry Cinnamon oh fuck off

Never heard of Gerry Cinnamon before this thread.

Curiosity is terrible thing. I checked out a song on YouTube. It’s perfect British indie music if your surname is Farage.

I believe I saw some Facebook sponsored ad for The Hunna promoting something marketing twat and what he has done for their insipid shite Kasabian-lite music (safe assumption)

I mean if we dont factor in quality its clear one is a headliner of the main stage and the other two are the headliners of the smaller stages.

I apologise. This was not a serious question.

I was hoping Gerry Cinnamon would be Gerry from Parks and Rec eating cinnamon.

I checked out two songs in case the first wasn’t representative of his stuff. Unfortunately it was.

Reading/Leeds is so shit nowadays.
