Reading 2013: Temples Prepare For First R&L Fest Appearances

Heavenly-signed psych bringers play the Festival Republic Stage at Reading today, 23rd August.

Temples

are set to make their very first appearance at Reading & Leeds Fest this weekend.

The Kettering-based psych bringers are a high billing at the Festival Republic Stage (Reading, 23rd August; Leeds, 25th August), likely to draw an oversubscribed crowd of intrigued onlookers checking out the Heavenly signings for the first time.

‘We’ve never played it… I’ve walked round playing a tambourine all weekend once, but we’ve all been there as music lovers’, says Tom Warmsley from the band. ‘It was the festival to mark the end of summer.’

Put on the spot and asked if he had a preference on Reading v Leeds, he diplomatically states: ‘We all grew up going to Reading festival but Leeds is slightly more compact and has the better atmosphere.

‘I guess we’ll be able to decide after we play.’

Temples play Reading Festival’s Festival Republic stage this afternoon, 23rd August.
