Reading Festival has become one of the UK’s most famous music festivals. Having started out as a rock music festival back in the 70s, Reading Festival now embraces a whole range of genres, such as dance and hip-hop, while still remaining inherently rock focussed.

So popular have they become, Reading, and its northern sibling Leeds, are now a rite of passage for young festival-goers, while many older festival-goers will no doubt have many stories from fabled times at either festival.

And when it comes to the music, Reading’s list of past headliners reads like a hall of fame, with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, The Who and Fleetwood Mac having all graced its main stage.

And beyond the music, Reading Festival also showcases an expanded lineup of comedy as well as film screenings, giving festival-goers the ideal excuse to take a break from the mosh pits.
