My friend Matt's Dad signed for his, but has no recollection of doing so or where the tickets might be.

I am really up for this one. It's my last day of work for the year, and I have worked very very hard, so I am going to celebrate. I might even dance.

I had his issue before and spoke to a manager and made them leave me a new pair of tickets to collect on the box office.

If you didn't sign for them or get a card saying they tried to deliver they really should do their very best to sort you out.
They say they were sent out last week but have gone to the post office as we weren't in. I'm amazed that they have refused to help me though, so much for customer service.

As Braxton scans tickets, I'm surprised they haven't cancelled your original ones and issued you new tickets/box office pick up.

Wow, that's quite the fall from grace since Unbreak My Heart.

It was a good night (on the whole).

Enjoyed Royal Blood. Billy the Kid.

Also liked to kill a king who i had not heard before.

Catfish were ok. Reminded me of the vines.

Horrors - my god they were awful. As was billy Bragg.

FT and the SS were brilliant. Great energy and awesome little set.

The next storm sounded brilliant.

Was nice being up in the balcony but was a shame I didn't get to see anyone.

I really don't get what all the fuss is about Royal Blood. I thought they were dull at best. It's not even like they are superb musicians or anything either. And what the hell is with the drummer and the standing and staring routine? He looks like a simpleton.

Thought Billy The Kid and TKAK were pretty good (seen neither before, although have done a fair amount of work for both so it was nice to finally see them).

Catfish were shit.

The Horrors was atrocious.

Billy Bragg, I actually quite enjoyed, despite not being a fan even slightly.

And Turner was Turner. I find it quite hard to enthuse about his shows that much as I have seen so many, but I thought they played really well, especially considering the fact they were all jet lagged half to death.

Frank smashed it, really enjoyed the set a shame they couldn't have played longer. Royal Blood were alright, reminded me of a band that used to support Hell is for Heroes, thisgirl, Million Dead and others in the early 2000's Kerrang loved them but I can't remember the name of the band at all, just that there was a bassist and drummer. To Kill A King were forgettable, Catfish and the Bottlemen weren't my thing, Horrors were boring. Billy Bragg was alright but I'm not a fan and it was good to see Billy the Kid, hadn't been too fussed with the albums but I enjoyed it live.

Winnebago Deal, a quick search through past Reading Festival line ups helped.

They have the dubious honour of being one of the worst bands I've ever seen

Yeah although they would have to fight Violent Delight or The Bardo to win that category for me.
