Last night (August 27) at Reading, Arctic Monkeys and Bring Me The Horizon played co-headlining sets. Reviewing Arctic Monkeys’ UK comeback, NME said: “Whether tonight ranks as one of the band’s definitive sets is still up for debate; the Yorkshire homecoming in Leeds could still take the mantle. But here the band look comfortable in the sweet-spot, one where both chant-along indie classics and more esoteric concoctions can co-exist in each and every setlist.”

Bring Me The Horizon, meanwhile, put on “a triumphant, hard-won victory lap” according to a five-star NME review of the set, which featured an appearance from Ed Sheeran on ‘Bad Habits’.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Fontaines D.C. welcomed a fan on stage to play guitar with them during ‘Boys In The Better Land’ and Pendulum collaborated with Enter Shikari during a surprise set

Reading Festival concludes today, with The 1975, Halsey and Charli XCX while Bring Me The Horizon, Wolf Alice and Arctic Monkeys are set to close Leeds Festival.
