August 27 – August 29
Reading Festival, the iconic British music festival, has claimed the August bank holiday since its inception alongside its sibling Leeds Festival. Although it started out as a rock festival, Reading and Leeds now showcase a lineup that spans the genres, including rock, indie, house, techno, drum and bass and grime.
Held on Little John’s Farm, Richfield Avenue, just 15 minutes from Reading city centre, the festival has become a rite of passage for UK music fans, with nearly all seasoned festival-goers having been a least once.
