‘+’ by Ed Sheeran is difficult. Difficult to truly like, but also difficult to criticise. After his track ‘The A Team’ broke him in to the mainstream consciousness in June, he has been made into a household name. Based on this lead single, it’s fair to say that the expectations for the rest of the album are respectably high. It is a shame then that ‘+’ isn’t quite up to the task.
Yet more names have been confirmed for the Republic Stage at this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals, joining the already announced acts The Horrors, The Midnight Beast and Pete Doherty. All newly added acts onto the stage are listed below:
