Another year and another triumphant reading festival, with what must certainly have been one of the strongest line ups in years the festival rocked from start to finish and Ashdown were there onsite to take in the atmosphere and to catch up with old friends which is always a great way to end the summer!

DIrty Pretty Things @ Reading...gear: Ashdown  bass amp, Vox AC30, Fender Mustang, Yamaha Drumkit

Ashdown powered bands included Bloc party, Biffy Clyro, pendulum, Dirty Pretty Things (Carl Barat now plays a 1972 Fender Mustang!), Serj Tankian, Editors, the automatic, British Sea Power, The Duke Spirit and many more.

Have a look at the pics from the weekend and also check out the links below to see the full sets from some of your favourite Ashdown powered bands!

All up another fantastic Year, it is now at an end which is always sad but don’t despair there’s always next year where you will be seeing a lot more Ashdown around the festivals and all over your televisions!
