READING Little Johns Farm
LEEDS Branham Park, Wetherby
Reading rocked on into 2003, with Linkin Park, Blur and Metallica headlining this year's festival.
Placebo, The White Stripes, and Beck also played the main stage, while the Polyphonic Spree, AFI and The Music headlined the Radio 1 stage.
Despite the festival weekend seeming like the first in a month to be cloudy, and rail services to the site being hit by repair work, the event was a hit once again.
The same acts played at the sister show in Leeds – which moved to Branham Park, near Wetherby, after riots at Temple Newsam last year. This time aroud, 70,000 fans enjoyed a peaceful weekend.
