Reading Festival 2013: Five reasons you shouldn’t miss it
With summer reaching its final month, these long days and warm nights are soon to become a thing of the past. With that and August Bank Holiday weekend in mind, what better way to celebrate summer’s final hoorah than at Reading Festival? Here are our top five reasons not to miss out on this year’s event:
1. Unbelievable Line-up:
There’s no shortage of big names across the entire weekend, starting with rock royalty Green Day and System of a Down alongside New Found Glory, Skrillex and Bastille on Friday. Saturday sees Eminem, White Lies, Alt-J and Imagine Dragons all take to the stage. Rounding the weekend off are Nine Inch Nails, Fall Out Boy, The Lumineers, Azealia Banks and City and Colour, to name a few. These and many other acts will be spread across the numerous Reading stages.
2. Stunning Location:
Now in its incredible 42nd year, Reading Festival is nothing short of historic, and Richfield Avenue has become a Mecca for festival-goers and music fans alike. The location is equipped with everything from food stalls and a pharmacy to a cinema tent and even a Tesco. Did we mention the eight music stages and a comedy stage too? There’s really no excuse not to enjoy yourself.
3. BBC Introducing stage:
In the spirit of discovering new acts and promoting them to the British music scene, festival organisers have added some exciting Brit-born bands to the BBC Introducing stage such as Amber, City of Lights, Glass Caves, I Divide and Jaws. Leeds Festival is the ideal spot to discover tomorrow’s big names.
4. Festival Republic stage:
Unique to Reading (and Leeds) is the Festival Republic stage, dedicated to bringing you the best new and upcoming artists. Crystal Fighters will be kicking off the weekend at Reading in style along with a number of acts such as Kate Nash, The Wytches, Balthazar and California X among others.
5. Incredible Crowd:
Weekend tickets for Reading have sold out and the remaining tickets are going fast, with that you can guarantee that the people going to Reading will be serious about their music. In addition to the ideal party crowd, the festival is taking place over the last weekend of summer: the scene is set for a perfect weekend in the sun (fingers crossed!). So haul out your sunnies and wellies and pick up your tickets, if you haven’t already. If you’re planning to enjoy the entire weekend or just one night, you definitely won’t be disappointed.
