The Reading Festival is a music extravaganza that takes place in Reading, England every year alongside the Leeds festival. It is, however, the older and more popular of the two. It is held over a three day weekend with a headlining act for each day. The festival has been known to go through various music phases and fads, but over the years, rock, punk, metal, indie and alternative music genres have been most prominent. Although camping and overnight weekends are part of it, Reading tickets for the day shows are also sold.
Reading Tickets Information
The festival is held at Richfield Avenue at the “Little John’s Farm” in the Central Reading. It is organized by “Festival Republic,” a sister firm to the “Mean Fiddler Music Group.” In its early years, the creators used the name “Carling Weekend: Reading” for promotion, even though this title was hardly used for the festival. In 2007, this name was let go even for promotional purposed as the Reading Festival began to gain popularity on its own; in 2011, there 87,000 people in attendance, a number far greater than those of previous years.
The festival consists of seven stages. The first is the BBC Introducing Stage where unknown or unsigned bands perform. Next is the Alternative Tent which consists of DJs and cabaret acts. This may also contain comedy acts. The third stage is the Dance Tent, consisting of acts that perform dance music. The fourth is the Lock Up Stage. This is perhaps the most popular stage after the main event. This is where underground metal and hardcore bands perform. This is followed by the Festival Republic stage where breakthrough acts perform. The second stage is the NME/Radio 1 stage, where less known acts perform to create a build up for the headliners.
Finally, there is the central event of the festival, the main stage during which headlining acts and well known bands perform. These acts are usually of the rock, alternative, metal or indie genre.Each year, a new lineup of performers for the festival is announced. In 2011, Reading tickets were sold because of the vast popularity of the headliners, My Chemical Romance, The Strokes and Muse.
Over the years, the Reading Festival has attracted a cult following that has played a big role in shaping popular culture and the underground scene. It has been home to the most iconic concerts. In 1991, Nirvana was the headlining act, which would also become the band’s last show together. This became one of the most well known concerts of their career. It was even released on DVD as “Live at Reading.” Kurt Cobain performed on a wheelchair, an iconic image that is still the subject of much controversy and discussion, even to this day.
A tradition of the Reading festival is to force performing acts off stage by throwing bottles and cans at them. Even though this tradition is not as popularly practices as it used to be, unpopular acts are still subjected to it.Reading tickets for the 2012 show are now being sold.
