30 years ago this week the 1992 Reading Festival took place, it was the year when Nirvana headlined and secured the festivals future for the next few decades.
This show looks back at the festival and plays a selection of tracks performed over the weekend.
Alongside Nirvana the festival had a strong line-up after several years of seeing alternative music explode plus we even had one of the greatest hip-hop acts of all-time headline.
Personally it was to be the last time I went to the festival after frequenting it for several years. You can read a review of my weekend here.
