PART of the Reading Festival line up for next year was revealed this week - but not everyone is pleased.

Organisers believe the festival is going to be 'bigger and better than ever', and six new headliners were announced on Monday.

Stormzy, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Post Malone, Disclosure, Liam Gallagher, Queens of the Stone Age and others have been confirmed.

Responding to the news on The Chronicle's Facebook though, not all readers were happy with the line up.

Some questioned why the recent line ups are so different to how they used to be.

Cathy Jones said: "Load of rubbish. Bring back the days when it was a proper rock festival", while Clive Huntley joked: "If I had a ticket, I’d tear it up."

George McLean asked: "Where's the good lineup?" and Bethany Henry raised an interesting point by asking: "No female headliners?"

Deano Fairbairn echoed these views, saying: "It's a terrible lineup."

Some expressed that, after this year's cancellation due to Covid-19, they expected a "better" list of acts.

Lizzie Bennett took to Twitter to respond to Reading and Leeds Fest Official, saying: "What happened to you Reading Festival?

"Where are all your rock and mental bands at?? What a joke. I really thought you’d have an amazing line up coming out of COVID."

Meanwhile, another raised the issue of the lack of women in the line up, saying: "We do this whole Reading Festival thing every year and the line up REMAINS full of men ... the misogyny is so ripe."

This issue was also raised earlier this year in response to the 2020 line up, which didn't happen due to the lockdown.

In February, organisers faced a backlash after several people pointed out that a large majority of those booked to perform were men, with very few female acts on the list.

Following this week's announcement, many others have picked up on the fact that there aren't many women booked to perform.

Some however simply questioned the quality of the line up in relation to previous festivals.

Mark Digweed said: "Feel sorry for the kids today, there’s better bands around than this."

Some held a different view though, with Rebecca Wesson commenting: "We definitely going", while Shannon Joy Harper said: "I love it."

Becky Norgate said: "We are happy with this."
