Preview: Reading and Leeds Festival August 2010

By on Monday, 29th March 2010 at 7:15 pm

After Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds Festivals are the granddaddy of all music festivals. Some of the best bands, the biggest exclusives and best lineups all come together for three massive days over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Last year they “played it safe” with a lineup of Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys and Radiohead, but this year they’ve gone for a bit more interesting selection, returning to their rock roots.

This year, The Libertines are going to be the big news of the festival, with Pete Doherty and Carl Barat putting their differences behind them to play the festival, supporting Reading’s Saturday night’s headliners, Arcade Fire. Meanwhile, Blink 182 and Guns ‘n’ Roses also headline the main stage.

If we were going this year, the NME stage looks pretty good, with LCD Soundsystem, Klaxons and Band of Horses all set to play what is our pick of the stages so far. Kele from Bloc Party is also playing, intriguingly billed already higher than The Drums and he hasn’t even released a track yet.

The Festival takes place on the August Bank Holiday weekend – Friday 27th to Sunday 29th August 2010. Tickets are on sale now at See Tickets. Tickets are £180.00 for the weekend, or £75 per day ticket.

Catch the full lineup (so far) below…

Video of the Moment #121: The Gaslight Anthem at Reading

By on Friday, 4th September 2009 at 6:00 pm

Reading and Leeds festivals might be over, but that doesn’t stop us re-living it through iPlayer and YouTube. The Gaslight Anthem put in one of the strongest sets, and this is one of my favourites, the ’59 Sound. Watch and enjoy.



MP3 of the Day #70: The Gaslight Anthem

Ahh, The Gaslight Anthem. 2008 was their big breakthrough, and now they’re just doing a victory lap, supporting Bruce Springsteen in Hyde Park this summer amongst other achievements. To celebrate, they’ve given NME a heart-breakingly gorgeous version of their song, “Great Expectations”. Download and enjoy below.

Video of the Day #68: The Gaslight Anthem

By on Thursday, 28th May 2009 at 6:00 pm

Easily the best song off the Gaslight Anthem‘s 2008 album, “The ’59 Sound“, the band have decided to release the eponymous single off of the album on June 15th.

Clearly coming straight from the heart, this was the song that got me into New Jersey’s hottest band, and the video that goes with it is, well, amazing – tells the story, and is definately open to a few interpretations!



Daily Roundup: Wednesday 7th January 2009

By on Wednesday, 7th January 2009 at 11:52 pm

The amount of emails we’ve been getting this past week has been quite something – so many new opportunities, great bands getting in touch, and some quite bizarre questions too (including one genius who asked if TGTF was a “music website”…. erm, last time we checked it was!)

First up, Daniel Merriweather (pictured top) has a new single out on February 2nd. Recognise the name? Yes, it’s him from “Stop Me”, Mark Ronson’s massive hit. He’s got a great voice, and he’s embarking on a solo career at the moment, starting with “Change”, the first single to be taken from his forthcoming “Love & War” album. I have a feeling I’m gonna have this stuck in my head, much like “Stop Me”. Watch the video below, and fall in love with him…


Some of you may have spotted that iTunes have announced a new flexible pricing scheme for their music, and (perhaps the biggest news story) have ditched the irritating copy protection from their songs (Guardian news story here). It seems to have been hailed by just about everyone, with Popjustice commenting “Does this DRM-free thing mean that people have now totally given up on the idea of revenue through music sales?” (Twitter). We7‘s CEO Steve Purdham (who we first mentioned last week) hailed the news by commenting that “the spectrum of choice for music lovers is now greater than ever before and the stage is set for 2009 to really open the boundaries of digital music consumption”. Couldn’t have put it better myself.

Coming up on There Goes The Fear, we’re going to catch a preview screening next week of a new MTV show about Pete Doherty, and we’ll be bringing you a live review of the Kerrang! Relentless tour after the 20th when we catch the tour in Oxford. We may also be catching Keane in February, and possibly the Gaslight Anthem too. Yes, it’s all go.

As ever, if anyone wants to write for TGTF please don’t hesitate to contact us – tell us a bit about yourself, and we’ll take it from there.
