Yesterday we shared our favourite pictures from Leeds Festival with you, and today we bring you some of the best shots from Reading Festival. If you want to see everyone from Mona scooping ice cream to Frankie And The Heartstrings playing with their pizza - and some naked punters bathing in mud - look no further. We also caught a Jane's Addiction performance on the site (yes, really. Well, kind of).
