Time, once more, for Reading + Leeds, the annual knees-up that has become a rite-of-passage for fans of rock, hip hop and grime, particularly teenagers freshly clutching their GCSE or A-level results.

This year sees shock rapper Eminem return as headliner (more on him later), along with rock behemoths Muse and Kasabian. We know what you're thinking: who has been the greatest headliner in the festival's history, which is fast-approaching its 50th anniversary at Reading (Leeds became a sister site in 1999)? Radiohead, for opening with Creep in 2009? Patti Smith, for ushering in a punk takeover in 1978? That totally incendiary 1992 performance from Nirvana?
