Which would you prefer..

personally i have to say Leeds.. my reasoning?

Bigger park..
Shorter distance between the crowd and the stage.. (nearer to the bands!)..
Better Line-up.. (Muse ending 2006 is way better than being on the second day surely?)
Genrally better weather, i believe anyway..
it also seems that reading don't ahve anything on on the thursday.. whereas at reading sixth are playing!! lols! i'm not a huge fan of theirs but i'll still go see them!

Generally underated! - Reading's too overated!!

Although, i have to admit.. Reading footage does seem to get used more on tv, but this year Leeds is being broadcast on BBC3 so i'm gonna record the whole weekend!! woop!

discuss.. i wana see conflict. lol. tell us about your experiences at the festival and what made it soo good!

i think leeds has a smaller park.

and i dont see the point comparing the two. the only reason there is two is because not everyone up north can travel all the way to reading and back.

ive only ever been to leeds, but from hearing what friends, who have been to both, have said it seems leeds has a better atmosphere.

the reason reading is more popular and shown on tv is that back it the day it was only reading then about 10 years ago or so they started up leeds aswell.

i think decision will be pretty biased because i doubt many (if any) people have been to both reading and leeds.

as far as i can tell leeds is (much) smaller and (a lot) more thuggish than reading.
but otherwise, theres no real point in comparing what is really, the exact same festival in two different sites.


personally i prefered the old leeds site ... and i liked the way leeds used to run from saturday to monday instead of friday to sunday.

I'd much rather a smaller festival anyway.

less walking.

size isn't everything.
