Win Reading Festival Tickets!

Reading Festival returns over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Eminem, Kasabian and Muse will headline the festival which runs from Fri 25 – Sun 27 Aug. Both headliners have confirmed Reading as their only UK festival appearance this year. Also performing exclusively will be Flume, Jimmy Eat World, The Amity Affliction, Korn, Major Lazer, At The Drive In and Architects.

They will join Two Door Cinema Club, Fatboy Slim, Wiley, Rat Boy, Bastille, Tory Lanez, Andy C and many more at Little John’s Farm this summer. The festival is famed for its rock, alternative, indie, punk and metal domination. Initially named the National Jazz Festival, it first moved to Reading in 1971, with weekend tickets costing just two pounds. 46 years later, weekend camping tickets are available for £205. The 2016 event sold out, with over 90,000 festival goers in attendance.
