Reading & Leeds are edging ever closer and the tube today was full of (very) early birds heading to the site to get their pitch. To be fair, their enthusiasm is justified on this one; you don't get more bands for your buck than at R&L, and the array of talent on display is almost intimidating. We've plucked out the 20 top acts to see but there's pretty much something good on non-stop for three days straight.
Up in Leeds the ever reliable label Dance To The Radio are hosting a night on the BBC Introducing stage for the eager beavers, featuring Chickenhawk, Get Cape, Bear In Heaven and more.
Here's a free EP they made to get you going. Download after the jump.
