Reading Festival

Rocking out at a festival

The Reading and Leeds festival takes place over the August bank holiday weekend and hosts a line-up of some of the world's top bands.

Reading and Leeds share a line-up and bands will play Reading on one day and then swap to join the bill at Leeds.

Headlining the main stage at Reading festival on the Friday night is Green Day, followed by Eminem on Saturday who is making his only UK festival appearance at Reading and Leeds. Biffy Clyro will then headline the main stage on Saturday, and having set fire to their guitars at Reading Festival in 2007 they will surely be a band to watch!

Other acts taking to one of the eight stages at Reading festival include:

  • Skrillex
  • Alt-J
  • Bastille
  • Jake Bugg 
  • Knife Party
  • Sub Focus
  • Wretch 32
  • I Divide

Campers in the fields at Richfield Avenue for Reading festival will be looking for a dry, warm weekend.
