Reading Festival 2011 - Saturday

27/08/2011

The team from Umusic were back at Reading festival for day two and grateful for the the great weather. Eager fans gathered despite the poor weather on Friday

 

Just in case you get lost.

The smaller stages were packed with fresh faces that had arrived that morning.

The trusty wellies finally gave way and sprung a leak. Gaffa tape will fix anything

Crowds turned out in their finest fancy dress. These 'monkeys' had their own team song.

Cults were not put off by an early slot in the Festival Republic stage.

Reading's youngest attendee?

Island's Bombay Bicycle Club were one of the day's most anticipated bands. The NME/Radio1 stage was full long before the band took to the stage.

The Bronx

Fiction's Crystal Castles kept the crowd at the NME/Radio1 stage. Alice Glass got up close with the fans.

Fixers play the BBC Introducing stage, the festival's smallest stage.

Co-headliners Pulp return to Reading 14 years after their first peformance at the festival...

...and bought their confetti cannons along too.

The Strokes bring the main stage to a close.

There's only one day left. If you see us around tomorrow make sure to come say hi!
