Reading Festival 2012

Reading Festival 2012

August 24 - 26
Reading, England, UK
 
 

The Reading Festival, a dual festival that goes with the Leeds Festival. Reading and Leeds were recently known as "Carling Weekend" until the festival sponsor Carling dropped support for the two shows. Festival Republic has picked up the bill and continued the drive. Reading and Leeds are two of the oldest music festivals around, which date back to 1961. Best of all, if you're going ... you've got your hangover cure, as told by Reading Festival organizers: "all Reading & Leeds Festival 2012 weekend ticket holders will be entitled to a free bap and beer or soft drink each of the three days." So there it is, you have no reason NOT to go.

 

Reading Festival 2012 Tickets

Tickets are available for £197.50 or under two ticket plans: the two part scheme involves 2 payments of 50% of the ticket price with an £8.00 booking fee per ticket; the four part scheme is the same idea in 4 payments: each one is 25% of the ticket price with an £8.00 booking fee per ticket.
