Pale Waves recently spoke to NME about the Reading and Leeds line-up.

Some festival-goers took online to complain about the bill, bemoaning that the festival leant more towards pop and hip-hop than they would like.

“Why does it have to be guitar heavy?” replied drummer Ciara Doran. “What’s that about? Music can come from any instrument.”

Singer Heather Baron-Gracie added: “It doesn’t just have to be from a guitar. And that’s coming from a guitar band.”
