Reading 2013: Biffy Clyro To Close Reading Festival

Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, Disclosure & More see through the final day of festivities.

Biffy Clyro

are set to close Reading Festival 2013 with a gigantic set encompassing all their triumphs from the past 20 years, in turn building up to the biggest performance of their career.

Having witnessed Green Day and Eminem step up to the headline status, Biffy’s set is even more of a big deal to the band personally. ‘You know how other kids dream of being a movie star or going to the fucking moon or something like that? We kinda dreamed about headlining Reading festival,’ said James Johnston from the band in DIY’s recent interview.

Elsewhere on the festival’s final day, French icons Phoenix close the NME/Radio 1 stage, delving into latest album ‘Bankrupt!’ and who knows, maybe the odd R. Kelly cover.

With Disclosure and Azealia Banks also set to feature, alongside a much-anticipated set from Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails, Knife Party see out the Dance Stage, Enter Shikari send the Lock Up tent into a frenzy, while indie darlings Spector close the Festival Republic stage.
