Everybody's talking about...Reading and Leeds Festival
Richfield Avenue, Reading / Bramham Park, Leeds
Monday 13 August 2012
Why is everybody talking about it? The annual rock festival returns on August Bank Holiday to Reading and Leeds with a strong line-up alternating between the two sites, featuring the latest and greatest in alternative, rock, punk and metal.
Is it worth the hype? The Cure headline the first night of Reading, while At The Drive-In make their first UK appearance in 11 years on Saturday. Foo Fighters (above) close the show on Sunday night and many bands, including The Black Keys, Kasabian, and Florence and the Machine are set to perform.
Watch out for A free breakfast is on the cards for all Reading and Leeds Festival 2012 weekend ticket holders. With each weekend wristband, festival goers will be entitled to a free bacon, sausage, or scrambled egg and mushroom bap, as well as a beer or soft drink on each of the three days.
