Featuring My Chemical Romance, Beady Eye...

10:37 27th August 2011

Reading Festival started with a bang on Friday, with an explosive headline set from My Chemical Romance, an outing for Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye, and a dark and stormy set from White Lies.

Further down the lineup, The Naked and Famous, The Vaccines, Mona and The Computers all put in stellar performances to cheer up the muddy crowd, while Foster the People packed out the Festival Republic tent to usher in the sunshine for the afternoon.
