The guys were fucking incredible. Warm Smiles was a highlight for me. The DJ set at the Actionaid tent afterwards was mental! Top weekend.

I actually fucking hated Shikari's set. Which is a disappointment since it was my 15th time seeing them. Just was in front of the pit for most off it, and just hated the vibe I felt from the crowd. Thought most were massive nobs, but ah well. Thought they played great, but personally I didn't really enjoy it. I've only ever properly gone to the front a few times on main stage at Reading (even though this year was my third in a row), but most times it hasnt been the best of fun.

Saw them at Leeds yesterday and they didn't dissapoint, one of the best times I've seen them in a while but set list was too short, but can't have it all! DJ set was brilliant too, perfect end to the weekend followed by getting free beer from all my tent neighbours

Not a big fan of main stage, lose so much atmosphere. And just find that a lot of the crowd at Reading are massive nobs (well, the ones who go near/in the pit). And I think last 2 years at Reading have set the bar way too high.

QFT. Last year I found myself in a pit full of dicks but this year it seemed that everyone was awesome and really into the music than just shoving each other about.

Reading wasn't the best for me, I was stood central, in front of the second barrier but the sound was really quiet. I couldn't sing along, or everyone around me would hear me instead of ES.

You can see SYNAW at about 2 hours in on the BBC Three coverage.

tbf, it'd be a disgrace if a band were to ruin a nice weekend of people getting fucking hammered, making a mess the place and setting fire to their tent on Monday because it's hard to take down properly by being too loud at 3 in the afternoon. A disgrace.
