Each One Teach One

One music fan with a good memory pointed out headliner's Kings of Leon had better prepare themselves for the audience this year. The Nashville natives previously played Reading Festival in 2009 with bandmates taking to Twitter afterwards to criticise the fans, who booed throughout their set. Frontman Caleb Followill actually apologised a year later in an interview with NME, calling it his 'Kurt Cobain moment'. He admitted they took out their 'unhappiness on the crowd'. The Twitter user wrote: 'Kings of Leon are definitely going to be ****** off this year when a bunch of wannabe roadmen there aren't joining into any of their songs and only two of their tracks get sung along to.' Organisers Festival Republic have been contacted by MailOnline for comment. Reading and Leeds Festival runs this year from Friday, August 24, until Sunday, August 25. Reading is one of the longest running events in the UK, with a history dating back to the 1950s. Since moving to its Berkshire site in the 1970s, the annual extravaganza has seen the likes of The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, The Jam and The Who perform over the years. As of 2011, the capacity for the Reading site was 87,000 and Leeds 75,000.
