Radio 1 Stages - Reading 2015
Reading Festival promises to be a fiesta “where the best memories are made”, a Disney World for the big kids if you like. Their Radio 1 Stages are the one place where, for a whole weekend, you don’t mind jumping in a sea of sweaty bodies and beer being spilt over your festival garms is the start of a lifelong friendship. Right, so it’s possibly nothing like Disney World, but I have every faith it could steal the title of ‘world’s happiest place’.
I’ve been pondering over how to sell the NME/BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1 Dance Stages to you. After struggling for over an hour, going into a downward dog pose and doing a strange face massage that’ll apparently get my creative juices flowing - My cousins an actress, she says these things work. I’m at my wits end, I’d believe anything- I’ve realised you’re obviously already the free-spirited, festival-going type. Alas (I’ve been spending too much time with my cousins theatre performing friends), what better way to lure you in than with some of the acts quirky idiosyncrasies that’ll have you thanking both stages for rounding up groups of musicians you can relate too.
