Reading Festival 2005 – Dubious value for money


For anyone who missed the news yesterday, the current lineup for the 2005 Reading Festival can be found here. The festival runs from Friday 26th August to Sunday 28th, with a weekend ticket costing £125 minus booking fees.

I look forward to seeing The Pixies, Foo Fighters, QOTSA, Maiden and Bloc Party, though the other offerings don’t have as much appeal. Were it not for The Pixies, I probably wouldn't bother given the cost. With any luck we’ll see some smaller, promising groups added to the lineup in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, it looks like we won't have any controversial additions, such as 50 Cent who last year earned a cool £285 000 despite being forced off stage after 15 minutes. I don't understand the mentality of people who think it's clever to throw stuff because the music isn't to their taste. How about walking away and doing something more productive?
