DIY Weekly 19th August 2013
DIY's ultimate guide to Reading & Leeds features Biffy Clyro, Temples & More.DIY is celebrating the best weekend of the year. Get your wellies, windbreakers, pop-up tents at the ready: It's time for Reading & Leeds.
Our ultimate guide, served up in Weekly, details every single band worth seeing. FIDLAR, CHVRCHES, HAIM, other bands who don't solely rely on capital letters… they're all in there.
Biffy Clyro head up the issue, proving that slow and steady wins the race. They're just days away from stepping up to their cause as proven festival headliners.
Temples & Frightened Rabbit also share the excitement ahead of their big-deal performances, while DIIV detail their itch to get back in the studio post R&L.
We've also provided an essential Reading A-Z guide - Eminem, rain, xylophones (naturally) - and Green Day are the recipients of an open letter, where we essentially tell them exactly what to play this weekend.
Beyond the ultimate guide, DIY announces two huge names to join its #standforsomething tour with Dr. Martens; Little Green Cars provide an animated guide to their debut album and we're on the prowl with Grimes-watch. Last time we saw her, she was freaking out a load of hipsters, of course.
In Reviews, DIY delivers the verdict on Zola Jesus and Drenge's latest albums and Brighton seasiders Gaps provide an exclusive mix. In Neu, sunny Londoners Mausi prove themselves an exciting new band now, but they're made up of members who used to dye their hair red and pretend to be Paramore's Hayley Williams. Seriously.
All this, in the new DIY Weekly, available now on iTunes Newsstand.
Don't forget: The price of DIY Weekly issues has been dropped to £1.49. Weeklies over a month old are available for 69p each. All that, plus a free taster edition for cheapskates. Don't say we're not treating you.
