With Reading Festival 2022 this weekend, we are so excited to be heading back to an even more exciting line up, including Arctic Monkeys, Dave, Megan Thee Stallion, Glass Animals and so many more at Richfield Avenue. The festival is always set at the end of August during the three day bank holiday weekend (26th – 28th August). It’s very popular amongst a wide range of music lovers, from dance, hip-hop and it’s famously known for the rock/alternative music scene. Although Reading Festival has had some last minute cancellations from numerous big acts such as Rage Against the Machine, Måneskin and Jack Harlow, don’t fear The 1975, Charli XCX and AJ Tracey have saved the day!
