At the time we publish this, more than 150,000 people are waking up in their tents at Reading & Leeds Festivals, desperate to take the edge off their hangovers with bacon rolls and paracetamol and half-drunk cans of stale lager. Later on today, they’ll enjoy the final day of the festival that traditionally marks the end of the British Summer festival season. For those of us too poor/lazy/sensible to spend several wet and miserable days living in tents, well, we’ve got a Sunday Slaylist to fall back on.
Reading and Leeds are traditionally seen as covering the more commercial end of what we cover here at Thrash Hits, and this year is no different. Sure, they always slip in a few choice gems – like Deftones – and the Lock-Up Stage usually delivers the best pop-punk/hardcore punch of any festival outside of Hevy, but Reading and Leeds are a festival for the masses, and our Slaylist reflects that. Put it on, turn off your brain, do a crossword or something. Just be thankful that you don’t have to pack up your tent tomorrow morning in the pouring rain, while fighting to control three-days ‘worth of noodle-van diarrhea trying to escape your colon.
Who did we miss off our Really Commercial Slaylist? Drop us a comment down below and point out our Sunday morning failures to us. We’re going back to bed.
