Pendulum create mass chaos at Reading Festival

Seas of fans turn out for band on NME/Radio 1 Stage

Pendulum packed out the NME/Radio 1 Stage this afternoon (August 24) at the Reading Festival, playing a set that had thousands of fans squeezed in to catch a glimpse of the Australian band.

The tent was rammed to capacity, but many more fans gathered outside the perimeters of the enclosure in an attempt to get near the action.

The band played a high-octane set that induced hundreds of fans to surge forwards and crowdsurf over the safety barriers throughout the show.

The loudest chant-along of the set came early doors, with thousands of festival-goers screaming the tune to ‘Fasten Your Seatbelts’ three songs into the set.

Pendulum played:



‘Fasten Your Seatbelts’

‘Voodoo People’

‘Propane Nightmares’

‘Blood Sugar’



‘Hold Your Colour’
