Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has lashed out at Reading Festival promoters and Biffy Clyro, saying have “fucked us” on the band’s production.

Nine Inch Nails are due to take to the stage at Reading at 8pm on Sunday (August 25), and will play for 75 minutes before headliners Biffy Clyro appear at 10pm. The band's performed in the same slots at Leeds Festival on Friday (August 23). Nine Inch Nails' show at Leeds saw the recently returned band performing in front of a bank of white lights, creating a moody, intense atmosphere.

This afternoon, Reznor tweeted about tonight’s performance, saying "Should be an unusual show tonight at Reading… the lying promoter and the band following us (whoever the fuck they are) fucked us on our production." As yet there has been no response from Biffy Clyro.





Earlier this week, Reznor told NME that his band’s brand new stage show, inspired by Talking Heads' 1983 Stop Making Sense tour, was redesigned from scratch to work outdoors. "In terms of physical components, it's actually low-tech," he said, speaking in this week's NME, available available digitally and on newsstands. "It's either going to be the best thing ever or a spectacular disaster."

Reading & Leeds Festival boss Melvin Benn has responded to Reznor's tweets, saying "The truth is there's no truth in the statement. The contract hasn't changed since they signed up to it."

Asked if Reznor was perhaps feeling a bit sore about playing before a band he hadn't heard of, he said "I couldn't possibly comment."
