Reading Festival 2004
"It was great. We played with Peaches and Primal Scream I think, and we went to see Sick Of It All afterwards. We were in good company." - Eugene Hutz of Gogol Bordello on their Reading 2004 experience.
"Apart from playing, I remember seeing 50 Cent shutting everything down backstage so he could go to the toilet. Walking around with an entourage of 20 people - what a f**king wanker. You can put that in print as well. I felt like mate, I don't care who you are, have some respect! I wouldn't hit him because he'd knock me out with his little finger, so why does he need all those people with him? What do you think is actually going to happen backstage? But then justice was served and he only lasted 10 minutes on stage. I don't condone that, obviously, but you can't help but think there's a bit of karma involved." - Ian Watkins of Lostprophets on his favourite 2004 Reading memory
