The Basics

25-27. August 2017
Reading, United Kingdom

Reading Festival is one of the UK's most famous music festivals. Held each August bank holiday weekend, giants from the worlds of rock, indie, electronic, hip-hop and more descend on Little John's Farm, Richfield Avenue, for three days of outdoor madness.

The festival is one of the country's oldest music festivals having started in 1971, and has an unrivalled hall of fame that includes Nirvana, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, Foals and Red Hot Chili Peppers. It's therefore little wonder tickets continue to sell out every year.

And in the run-up to each edition, music forums are dominated with Reading Festival rumours, as keen festival-goers speculate over who they're hoping will make the final lineup.

But it isn't just about music at Reading, with the festival also laying on a lineup of some of the world's best comedians as well as screenings of both classic and modern films for those after a bit of respite between the main stages.
