This weekend, we’re ‘on the ground’ at Reading 2022. Featuring some of the biggest and most exciting bands and artists on the planet, alongside the buzziest new acts, we’ll be bringing you coverage of everything you need to know. That includes photos of all the key sets, including these snaps of Willow, who took to the Main Stage East on Sunday (28th August).
Bringing a much-needed lease of positivity to a Sunday Main Stage East crowd is Willow. One of the more unlikely breakout rock stars of the new pop punk wave, she opens with the reintroduction single ‘Transparent Soul’, a bunny-eared beanie covering her usually shaved head to flip around in lieu of hair.
After wrapping up a tour, she notes that it’s nice to be playing outside instead of in closed venues, and says this is how music should be. With a refreshing rock star attitude, she calls for positive affirmations from the crowd rather than mosh pits between tracks from last year’s emotionally honest ‘How I’m Feeling Now’.
Wrapping up with a double bill of TikTok hits, ‘Meet Me At Our Spot’ and ‘Wait A Minute!, plus new single ‘<maybe> it’s my fault’, it’s hard to believe the voice comes out of her tiny frame.
