The second day at Reading 2014 saw previously humble blokes from Sheffield establish themselves as rock ‘n roll giants, while the likes of Wolf Alice and Royal Blood proved they’re part of an exciting new breed of potential bill-toppers. That’s not forgetting unforgettable sets from Chvrches and Gnarwolves, plus R&L debuts for the likes of MØ and Circa Waves.
Reports and updates from the action can be found here, but throughout day two our photographers were out and about for pretty much the entire time. They snapped countless bands, and below we’ve put together a selection of shots from across the site.
