AKA the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK. Considered the best festival in the world, even better than Glastonbury, Woodstock, Lollapalooza and Ozzfest. Reading originally started as a Jazz and Blues festival in 1961, whilst Leeds started in 1999 so Northerners can get a taste of the Reading experience too. Rather notorious for it's annual campsite riots and it's bottling of unwanted acts.
Great bands such as Foo Fighters, New Order, Nirvana, Kings Of Leon, Smashing Pumpkins, Queens Of The Stone Age, The Pixies, Primus, Stone Temple Pilots, Green Day, The Strokes, The Darkness, Metallica, Super Furry Animals and Soundgarden have graced the stages of Reading and Leeds.
Kid: Mum, I wanna go to Glastonbury!
Mum: No, the Carling Weekend is a lot better. Go to Leeds or you're grounded!
