Carling Stage announced for Reading

Carling Stage is the smallest stage at the Reading Festival so, some people would probably say it’s the most interesting (or in this case the best). The Main Stage Line-up this year is not so exciting with Razorlight/-shite, the RHCP and the Smashing Pumpkins, but Carling stage is looking good as always.

The three headliners are not to be missed. Albert Hammond Jr is back at Reading after his past triumph with his main band. The Hot Hot Heat are a great live band, and I seem to remember having seen them at Reading on a bigger stage before. The Hold Steady are totally amazing live, even though people can have mixed opinions on their, very Springsteen-sounding, latest album.

Lower down on the list, it’ll be interesting to see Charlotte Hatherley on Sunday, after seeing her former band is playing on the Main Stage on Friday.
