Muse, Pulp and The Strokes brought Reading and Leeds Festivals 2011 to a close last weekend on their respective sites.

Up in Leeds Pulp topped the bill on the Main Stage, with The Strokes playing before them. The two bands were billed as co-headliners – on Saturday night (August 27) at Reading, Pulp‘s Jarvis Cocker joined The Strokes onstage, but on Sunday (August 28) the bands kept themselves to themselves.

Pulp treated the crowd to hits ‘Disco 2000’, ‘Common People’ and more, and were again joined by their old touring guitarist Richard Hawley, who played guitar on ‘This Is Hardcore’ mid-way through the set and stayed for the duration.

Down at Reading Muse brought their 2001 album ‘Origin Of Symmetry’ to the site along with a ‘greatest hits’ section at the end, as they had at Leeds Festival on Friday night.
