Last night, while I was at the Queen concert, the final headliner for this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals was announced, along with some other acts. I swore that I wouldn’t go back this year, but I might actually have to go, because the line up looks banging!
Headlining this year’s festival are Mumford and Sons, Metallica, and The Libertines, and the confirmed support acts are pretty damn sick!
It’s no secret that I love music more than the average 20 year old Londoner. Where everyone has their hobbies on what they spent their hard earned money from (better known as student loans) mine pretty much revolves around music. Reading about it, listening to it, and going to see it.
I was lucky enough to go and see Eminem at his second Wembley gig. Regardless of what everyone has said about it being a flop and the sound was awful or whatever – I had a great time! The atmosphere more than made up for the crappy sound quality, which is one of the main reasons I love going to gigs so much.
Another “main reason” gigs are basically heaven for me is it allows me to see the person that wrote the lyrics I love so very much, and suddenly that person isn’t just a poster on a wall or the sound in my headphones – they are there. They are alive. They are standing in front of me and talking to me!
