Reading Festival 2013 review - Day Three

Day three saw a slightly exhausted and bedraggled Reading Festival crowd after the rain soaked night before but this didn't stop the crowd from loving every minute of the Fall Out Boy Set as they played an energetic and furious set playing all the obvious songs (We're Going Down, This Ain't a Scene, thanks fr th Mmrs) and new tracks from the new album including Save Rock and Roll. The group seem to genuinely like Reading Festival and it showed in their performance.

The Lumineers before Fall Out Boy brought their own style of southern jig music to Reading. Playing a great sing-a-long set for the crowd who embrace sets like these with open arms. The oddly placed Nine Inch Nails set preluded Biffy Clyro. I say odd as with all the other acts on today someone with their following wouldn't want to sit to a relatively emo/indie laden day on the main stage. But, as always, they put on a great show which is worth watching for the visuality of it if nothing else. Trent Reznor putting in his famous focused and intense performance and in their defence nothing came close to their full out onslaught on the festival goers of Reading than this. It was tight, it was grandiose yet small and at times egotistic but it was Nine Inch Nails

As Biffy took to the Main stage, I wandered over to the Lock Up stage to see Enter Shikari and the premier of their Shikari Sound System. With a lighting set up to rival the nine inch nails, you were almost blinded by the glow they did more of an electronic set even mixing the theme from the Apprentice with a cover of Bring me the Horizon's "Can you feel my Heart" was ingenious. Showcasing why they are one of the best bands around and if they're not on the main stage next year then someone seriously needs to check their heads.
