There are well over 250 bands performing over the August Bank Holiday weekend in both Reading and Leeds with dozens of comedians and DJs on top. That’s a lot of stuff to see and if you’re going to either site, you’ve only got a limited amount of time to see a maximum of ten or so bands per day.

There is more than one artist named Quicksand:
1) Quicksand is an American post-hardcore band from New York City founded in 1990 by Gorilla Biscuits guitarist Walter Schreifels.

We went in-depth with reasons as to why 2011’s American Nightmare reunion was an excellent occurrence but there’s been a spate of reunions in the punk & hardcore scene. Whether it’s about the money or the acknowledgment of a great band, some have gone down wonderfully. Others… less so. This weekend in Downtown LA there’s another festival going in. It’s called Fyf Fest and it features a number of these reunited bands.
