Razorlight have concluded the first day of action at this year's Reading festival, with sunny weather this weekend offering a reprieve from the mud.

At the festival's sister site in Leeds, Smashing Pumpkins headlined the main stage and will make the trip down to Reading for a show on Sunday.

Razorlight headline Leeds tonight, along with rockers Kings Of Leon and New York band Interpol.

Something of a heat wave has hit both sites today as the much-heralded bank holiday weekend weather kicks in.

The Reading site had been heavily flooded during the rainy start to the summer and a number of camping areas have been unusable this year.

Today's highlights at the southern leg have included Good Shoes, who played the NME/Radio 1 tent with aplomb.

Meanwhile a set from Foals in the Carling stage saw huge crowds drawn to see the band Rush through their frenzied tracks.
