The last couple of years I have found myself being a little excited of Reading Festival. Why? For the simple reason that the bands playing, especially the headliners, have really captured my idea of what Reading Festival is- first and foremost a Music festival.
This year I was thrilled when Foo Fighters, Twenty One Pilots, The 1975, Post Malone were all announced, not only are they bands who have proved they deserve to be up there with their constant and expanding fanbases, but they bring me back to the idea of how I see Reading, a place where I could catch big acts I really admire among fans not just from my town (Reading) but others too and just take it all in in a special environment.
There’s still a wide mix of bands on various other stages, but the main stage has been preserved for acts who deserve to be there.

WHAT WE’LL BE WEARING
Who cares? Whatever the hell we happen to be wearing when we get there!
Reading Festival is an annual music festival that takes place in Richfield Avenue, Reading, UK. The Reading and Leeds Festivals are a pair of annual music festivals that take place in Reading and Leeds in the United Kingdom and are run by Festival Republic (itself owned by Live Nation and MCD). Reading Festival takes place on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend.
Reading Festival is good for Reading, good for businesses and it’s nice to see so many young people having a good time. I have no intention of going anywhere out Reading that weekend. It’s a big event on the cultural calendar and I love the fact that all this is happening in our town. It’s not so much about the big acts coming to town, but the sheer number of people it draws intent on having a good time – it generates a vibe of goodwill that I wish was present here all year round. Definitely something to be proud of.
