Pop stars, rock stars, rap stars and not-yet-stars from all over the musical spectrum descended upon England this weekend for the vaunted Reading Festival. Up top you can watch the entire crowd singing along and nearly drowning out Azealia Banks as she performs her breakout banger “212″ on the festival’s second day. Check out more of our favorite Reading performances from Passion Pit, Santigold and others after the jump.
Old vets Green Day rattled festival-goers out of their hangovers on Saturday with a “secret” morning show which included “Oh Love,” the first single from their forthcoming album ¡Uno!. Meanwhile, Foster The People broke out their old standard (we’re getting antsy for some new stuff from Mark Foster and co.) and sounded as crisp as ever. Meanwhile, Florence Welch wailed and the home crowd ate it up (they even made a human pyramid during her set…must be a British thing).
Green Day, “Oh Love”
Foster The People, “Pumped Up Kicks”
Florence + The Machine, “Spectrum”
Passion Pit, “Take A Walk”
