Tickets are just under £200 if you go for the whole weekend, around £180 I think.
I haven't been to any other festivals so I can't compare.
The atmosphere is awesome and I had the best time. One of the best weekends of my life!
The Strokes, MCR and Muse are headlining, so its a safe line up this year.
Like mentioned tickets are usually around £200ish, but Melvin did mention they might be rising...
I've not been to Reading but i've been to Leeds and its a brilliant festival set up, so i imagine its the same at reading. Although i heard at Reading they have no night entertainment? Where as at Leeds they have the Relentless Tent and Picadilly Circus...
Worth it though.
Reading is great! I'm going to T in the park this year rather than Reading (because my friends are all going to TitP) but I'm going to hopefully volunteer at Reading this year so will still get to go =D
Got my weekend ticket with Vodafone the other day, with booking fees it was £199.50.
I'm driving to Reading for the first time this year. Got train + coaches before. Any tips for driving? Hard to find the carpark or lots of traffic or anything?
A ticket allows you to camp anywhere.
That's all I can really help with - I don't usually have to fight for tickets because I live there. All I can say is that I know they go pretty damn fast and multiple browers might not hurt.
If you don't get one off the official site MAKE SURE wherever you try to buy one from after is official - there are so many frauds out there now. Good luck!
