He turned up for one of this year's secret sets.

Continuing the secret set revelations, Sunday's empty slot on The Pit Stage is snagged up by Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes who, just under four years ago, unveiled themselves here. Now, they’ve returned to tear it down. 

“I love the smell of Reading in the morning,” Frank snarls. The moment ‘Juggernaut’ erupts to life, all traces of calm are eradicated. The last show of the ‘Modern Ruin’ era of Rattlesnakes (the band are set to record the follow up asap, he reveals), the powerhouse that the hand have become feels unstoppable. 

Frank is an icon, having gone from being the proponent of a fresh-faced band to enough of a draw to command both a secret set and crowd that continuously feels momentous.
