10/10

Fresh from playing his first live gig in five years this June, the intriguingly reclusive and eccentric multi-instrumentalist Tom Vek puts on one heck of a return at Reading Festival.

Like getting a golden ticket to the coolest, indie disco party in town, the whole tent dances and jumps in synchronicity. The general vibe is pure elation, especially during ‘I Ain't Saying My Goodbyes’ as everyone genuinely feels lucky to be part of his notoriously rare and electric outing.

New material from 'Leisure Seizure' prove to be solid, Rapture-esque, worthy inclusions and despite it being Friday, Vek is certain to be a highlight of the weekend.
