Favourite Leeds/Reading festival line-ups

For anyone who has gotten bored and ended up scouring the internet for information pertaining alternative music festival line-ups, these people will probably already have their favourite Reading (and latterly) Leeds era in mind while reading this. Whether it be the emergence of Grunge in the late 80s to early 90s, the late 90s britpop takeover, the all-indie headliners of 2007, or the now impossible to consider epic 2000 ordering of Blink-182 into Rage Against The Machine, Eminem AND Slipknot right in the middle of the main stage.

Here at SilentHotels, we have decided, amidst the mixed reaction to this year's line-up, to put forward our views on what we believe to have been the greatest line-up this now-dual festival has produced and eventually to see how this year compares. For those who do not know much about the festival, here is some History and previous line-ups so you'll understand what we are planning to yap on about

Bobby's choice is the 2005 line-up, with Pixies, Foo Fighters and Iron Maiden headlining
Stuart's is the '92 festival with Nirvana and their iconic performance
and Rob is planning on looking into the '91 line-up

Stay tuned
