Reading And Leeds Festivals 2011 – Essential Playlist

It’s the August bank holiday bash that we pretty much gear up for all year round. So, just to help us get even more excited, we’ve compiled our essential playlist featuring the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Crystal Castles, and of course Muse.


With 35 tracks – that’s two hours, 19 minutes and 22 seconds of music exactly to wrap your lugholes around – it’s the perfect soundtrack while you pack your wellies/tent/loo roll/cider.
