Strictly Editor David Hayter puts personal sentiment to one side and both justifies and discusses what the 2012 line up says about Reading, rock, and the music industry at large.
Strictly Reader Thomas Muddle checks in with his take on last night’s line up. He’s full of praise but he’s not willing to commit his £200+ just yet.
Strictly writer, and Cure advocate, Adam Grylls thinks the good outweighs the bad in 2012, but it’s not enough to justify the price tag.
Strictly Reader William Scott is very pleased with a line up that hasn’t sold it’s soul to Radio One, he even praise the much maligned Paramore and Florence Welch.
Strictly Punk’s Adam McCartney reacts to the big announcement: he’s reasonably happy but Paramore have given him cause for pause.
