Overview

The Reading Festival is a music festival that takes place simultaneously with the Leeds Festival every August. The festival takes place on a farm in the centre of Reading. Lots of international pop, indie and metal acts are attracted to the festival, from the Libertines, Foo Fighters and Blink 182 to Pulp, Muse and Kings of Leon. There is something for everyone. There are shuttle buses organised from Reading Railway station to the venue.

Their costumer service is not responsible at all. It has been two months that I purchased tickets for 11 people, worth 700 Canadian Dollars, and I am trying to reach their costumer service for some inquiries. Surprisingly, no response, neither any way to contact them....More

Appauling customer service. No telephone number provider. I purchased a ticket in error and immediatley attempted to get a refund as is due under Consumer Contracts Regulations. No communication or resolution.

Rock? Tick. Dance? Tick. Rap? Tick. Something for everyone, with some great up and coming bands (and big headliners!)

Great music but load of 17 year old and younger off there faces on drugs. Poor security. More water points needed. More food vans needed in camps. White camps food van was poor quality. Apart from that great artist and great music.
