Reading festival lineup – New Additions

LCD SOUNDSYSTEM and FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND lead the latest additions to the CARLING WEEKEND: READING AND LEEDS FESTIVAL.
Both acts are among a brace of artists just confirmed for the festivals, which take place August 26–28.

Funeral For A Friend, who have just completed their second album ‘Hours’, play the Main Stage in Leeds on Friday 26 and Reading on Sunday 28, the same day as James Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem play the NME / Radio 1 Stage.

On Saturday 27 in Leeds and Friday 26 in Reading, Celtic punks The Dropkick Murphys appear on the Main Stage on a bill that also features Pixies and Queens Of The Stone Age.

However, posts I’ve read on a message board in the past suggest that they’re a poor emo group which begs the question of why they’re playing on Sunday. In any case, I suppose it’s worth taking the time to see what the three new entries to the line-up have to offer.
