EDIT Festivals rule. They’re always so much more than just bands playing in a field while thousands of people get a) sunburnt b) drunk or c) sunburnt and drunk; however crappy that Monday morning journey home is, everyone comes out of them with a million ridiculous stories (if they can remember them, that is). And so, to get you all excited we arranged something equally special: Jared Leto and Chino Moreno, two of rock’s most iconic frontmen, in conversation. Our unique cover feature will give you an insight into the creativity behind their relationship – let’s just hope that collaboration happens sooner rather than later! Now, let’s all pray for sun.
