The festivals have officially named Friday as "Wear Your Old Band T-shirt To Work Day" in honor of the day.
Reading And Leeds Festivals dates run from August 24 - 26. Run by Festival Republic, the dual festivals were recently known as "Carling Weekend" until the festival sponsor Carling dropped support for the two shows, when Festival Republic picked up the bill and continued the drive. Reading and Leeds are two of the oldest music festivals around, which date back to 1961.
A Reading Festival lineup and Leeds Festival lineup has not been announced but is due sometime in 2012. Check out the Spacelab Festival guide to stay up to date on 2012 music festivals, and check in with the Music Festival News page for daily & weekly updates.
