ROCK TILL YOU DROP AT READING
Saturday 09 August 1997
Suede, Manic Street Preachers (left), Metallica, Kenickie, Bush and The Boo Radleys are just some of the major attractions. This year the festival also has two new events: the Vans Warped Tour '97 on the Friday plays host to the Finals of the UK Amateur Skate Contest, while The Night of the Big Drums 2 on the Sunday will feature big beats in the form of live performances from Bentley Rhythm Ace, Dirty Beatniks and Alex Gifford, to name just a few. There's also a comedy stage as well as club nights at the nearby Rivermead Centre.
To enter the prize draw, answer this question: What is the name of the Manic Street Preachers' current album?
The first correct entry drawn out of the hat wins a pair of weekend tickets and, courtesy of one of the Festival's sponsors, a Dr Martens survival kit, containing all the essentials for a comfortable Festival weekend. The next nine each win a pair of weekend tickets and the next five each win, courtesy of Carlsberg - another of the major Festival sponsors - a crate of Carlsberg lager.
