Unmissable Act: Biffy Clyro
Playing between Ke$ha and Rhianna is not exactly normal practice for the Ayrshire trio, no matter, the band will still smash it out the park during their high profile Main Stage slot as they rub shoulders with the likes of 30 Seconds To Mars, Paramore, Pendulum, You Me At Six and more.
Unmissable Act: Alkaline Trio
Fifteen years, seven albums and still going strong, Matt Skiba and company have the veteran knowledge and songs to dominate the festival's second stage, New Found Glory, Four Year Strong and Against Me! all beware.
Unmissable Act: Deftones
They might not have AC/DC's production, Rage Against The Machine's fanbase or Aerosmith's unpredictability but Deftones have an incredible new record and a story of great adversity (click here to read all about it) that is entirely unrivalled, a stellar performance is all but guaranteed.
Unmissable Act: The Blackout
This sextet headline the Rock Sound Cave; the stage with the best name, best line-up and best sponsor of all time. Us biased? Fucked Up, Young Guns, The King Blues and many more beg to differ!
Unmissable Act: Lower Than Atlantis
While Glassjaw, The Subways and Gallows duke it out for the headlines from this fast-rising Festival Lower Than Atlantis will emerge from the weekend as most people's new favourite band, just watch and see.
Unmissable Act: Blink-182
No disrespect to Paramore, The Gaslight Anthem, Lostprophets or Queens Of The Stone Age but there is only one band on everyone's schedule at Reading and Leeds this year. The Mark, Tom and Travis show finally returns to the UK!
