I don’t like Muse much, but Arctic Monkeys are cool, and considering the success they’ve been having in the UK, it should probably be quite an event. Pearl Jam fills the slot for the “old” band this year. Last year it was Iron Maiden. I guess it’s bettter than Brian Wilson, but I would have preferred Mot rhead.
I just saw the Kaiser Chiefs at the Bataclan in Paris last Tuesday and they are much better live than on record, and Franz Ferdinand should put on a good live show as well.
Tool (so what?) and the Editors (appearently very good live) are also reported to play.
I hope The Strokes make it on the line-up, their headliner spot in 2002 was memorable (with Jack White joining them for the last song).
The Go! Team have confirmed their participation for Reading 2006. But I guess (hope) they won’t make it to the main stage.
