Reading_Festival_2013_lineupWith the return of Glastonbury and a Maiden-inspired Download it’s been an incredible summer of live music and we’ve still got Reading/Leeds to come.

And for the next three weeks we’ll be guiding you through a typically diverse bill – ensuring you miss none of the Bank Holiday weekend’s rock and metal highlights! 

One of the acts not to be missed is Frank Turner – one of the fastest rising stars in rock and a truly great performer.

Having teamed up with US label Interscope for the Release of Tape Deck Heart, Turner now has the financial backing he has lacked which should take him to another level all together.

Turner’s showmanship combined with his pure love of music make him one of the best artists on the circuit at the minute and fans should not have to think twice about going to see a musician who is slowly becoming one of the biggest names on the planet.

When: Friday August 23 (Saturday August 24)
