The festival season is climbing towards it's euphoric climax, with a whole heap of ridiculously brilliant festivals been and gone, and some, who unfortunately have had to cancel for a plethora of different reasons, but Reading and Leeds festival is nearly upon us. With V Festival, BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend, Green Man, heck even a global festival of sports (aka the Olympics) all behind us proving to already have brought a vast range of memories for a huge amount of people, Reading and Leeds is still tipped to be one of the UK's most exciting music festivals it has to offer. Many have already praised the line up, and with a team of AltSounds journalists preparing to make their way over to Reading for a weekend filled with mind boggling antics, we got Alex Easton to compile a collection of songs he's listening to in order to get his festival head firmly on.
This is his Reading Playlist, and this is what he has to say on the matter.
"Hello. My name is Alex, and I'm very excited. Not only because I'm back on Altsounds duty after spending a month in Uganda, but I'm going to Reading Festival tomorrow morning. So, naturally, I've had all the bands playing at Reading on full blast for the past week. And I thought it'd be rather nice for fellow Reading-goers to experience some music, to get you all psyched for what will be an amazing weekend. Prepare to see a monster review on Monday! After the hangover, of course"
