And it's already all systems go for Reading and Leeds 2007
Organisers of The Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds festivals have declared themselves “ecstatic” at the success of this year’s event.
Mean Fiddler Managing Director Melvin Benn said of this year’s event: “What a weekend. Two cities, Reading and Leeds, 214 different bands and performers playing in each city to a massive 200,000 people.”
He added: “Great weather, great music and great fans. To say I am happy would not even be scratching the surface. I am ecstatic, as were the bands and the fans.”
‘Early bird’ Tickets for the 2007 event are on sale from 10am tomorrow (August 29) – go to NME.COM/Gigs.
