Reading and Leeds reviewed by the acts on Twitter

Tagged with:

Did you go to Reading or Leeds this weekend? We'd love to hear what you thought of the festival, and especially if you caught any of the Welsh acts playing.

Please leave your comments below. In the meantime, I've scanned through Twitter this weekend for the acts' (and our Welsh DJs Bethan Elfyn's, Huw Stephens' and Jen Long's) own tweets. Backstage, hanging with the stars or looking out at enormous crowds, here are some of my favourites.

Amazing weekend. Great hang outs with friends at reading and Leeds. Met some very cool people and had a blast. Good times.

@leegazeprophets
Josh homme is a way cooler ginger than Axl Rose.

@ian_watkins
Thanks to everyone who made the show today so mind-blowing. You guys never fail to make me feel humbled and honoured. XXX

Got my guitar back, turns out the guy that stole it is in the band Casino Brawl, Ever heard of bands stealing from bands? Scumbag!

Marina and the Diamonds

Why are @NMEmagazine & co saying I got bottled at Leeds?! I didn't. "Hit on head and left FUMING". So much drama, little truth. Special gig.

Los Campesinos!

I'm struggling to think of many worse humans than Fred Durst.
