It's the Bank Holiday weekend, which can mean only one thing - The Reading Festival. And its evil, Venus-like twin, Leeds. Oh, and Creamfields. Which is more than only one thing, we suppose.

Reading has kicked off with Towers of London setting pigeons free - which is about as ropey a start as you could imagine - and The Long Blondes on the slightly cooler stage having trouble with their high heels.

We'll be tracking the coverage of the festivals over the weekend, building this into an index of some sort.
