When festival season comes round it gives music fans the perfect opportunity to explore new bands they’ve never come across. But what they really want is the big names that are going to blow them away.
And while there will be plenty of first time Reading And Leeds festival goers who have never heard of Nine Inch Nails, you can still be sure that the core fans will not dare to miss what is sure to be one of the treats of the summer.
