      • crazybarry

        Last year Melvin Benn got popped the question 'will Green Day headline 2012?' There was a moments silence, then burst out laughing, in a way that made it seem like he wondered how it had got out… I'll try and find a link to the interview. btw @stuart Some excellent choices I'd forgotten about in there.

    • Juwa

      Sick line up!

    • danny lewis

      Most of them will be at creamfields try going there.

  • badtimes

    After reading the awful line up's that people are writing on here with the likes of vampire weekend been support headliners I now understand why Leeds And reading had become so drastically crap at creating a near decent line up. The best bit about Leeds festival this year was the relentless tent and the craziness of the dubstep. But lets face it, Leeds and Reading is now full of 16 year old's running around on MCAT. Smoke a joint, drink till you pass out, dance and sing till your dead and stay up till 5am. What happened to the old Leeds and Reading?

  • emma


  • Mike G

    Headliners will be RHCP + Foo Fighters + Stone Roses… and i'm willing to put money on that!
