“Masters Of Their Craft”: Crossfaith At Reading Festival

This was cool.

CROSSFAITH SEEM LIKE BONA FIDE SUPER STARS
They may be playing one of Reading Festival's smaller stages today, but the performance the Japanese six-piece put on could transition to the main stage with ease.

There's a whole lot of charisma on stage tonight, and it's clear that this band want to make their presence felt. 



THEY'RE MASTERS OF THEIR CRAFT
Blending rock and dance music may not be as revolutionary as it once was, and it's got to the stage where there is a fine line between getting it right and getting it very wrong.

Thankfully, Crossfaith strike the right balance. Their set combines all of the energy and excitement of the most intense rock gigs and the most exhilarating raves.

Never more evident than during their cover of The Prodigy's 'Omen', which remains a set highlight.


IT GOES DOWN A TREAT
The Pit stage turns into a warzone, albeit one of the most fun warzones you'll ever be a part of. It's hard to find a corner of this tent where there aren't elbows being thrown or hands in the air.



THEY BROUGHT OUT SKINDRED'S BENJI WEBBE TO PERFORM THE BEST SONG OF THEIR SET
'Wildfire' was the undoubted highlight of last year's 'Xeno' album, and a surprise appearance by guest vocalist Benji Webbe goes down a storm tonight.

The Skindred frontman's reputation precedes him with many in the crowd taking off their tops and swinging them around to perform the now infamous Newport Helicopter.
