Published

on

The full line up for Reading and Leeds Festival has been announced.

We found out everything you need to know about the Reading’s biggest festival event in no just in our town but in all Berskshire.

When is it?
The Reading & Leeds music festival takes place at both sites over the August bank holiday weekend, from Friday August 23 to Sunday August 25.6.

Campers with early pass entry can get into the site on Wed 22 Aug 2018, 18:00 to find the best spot to pitch up your tent.

Where is the Reading festival site?
The Reading site is in the centre of Reading and is held on Little John’s Farm, Richfield Avenue.
There will be shuttle buses available for festival-goers running from Reading train station to Richfield Avenue.

Who is headlining?
This year’s headliners are…

The 1975, Post Malone, Twenty One Pilots and Foo Fighters.

Foo Fighters are perhaps the biggest name on the list.

The band from Seattle has been going strong since 1994 with classics such as ‘The Pretender’, ‘Learn to Fly’, ‘Times Like These’ and ‘The Best of You’.

Headed by Dave Grohl, the band is certain to draw huge crowds.

Foo Fighters have a pedigree for huge performances, being headliners at Glastonbury Festival in 2017.

Other artists performing worth keeping an eye out for include Dave, Fredo, Bastille, Mura Masa Chvrches and The Wombats all perform throughout the stacked weekend.
