Reading Festival sells out!

Reading officially sells out - and the sun looks like it will be celebrating with us!

Reading officially sells out - and the sun looks like it will be celebrating with us

Unofficially known as marking the end of summer, Reading and Leeds is nearly upon us once again and is set to leave us with an aftertaste of great music to help us through the rest of the year. 

Artists heading the main stage are Muse, Eminem and Kasabian. Whilst Muse released their new single ‘Dig Down’ in May and have promised more teasers before their album release in 2018 (at Reading?!), Kasabian have otherwise spent recent days advising Noel Fielding to join the Bake off, whilst Eminem has taken a 3 year hiatus from performing in the UK. This will be his 3rd headline show at Reading - and we’re as excited as ladies watching Channing Tatum perform as Magic Mike. 

Other great bands have made the line up this year, and SupaJam will be sure to check out the beautiful sounding pop duo Oh Wonder, the punk rock blues of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and The Pretty Reckless (for the music, not Taylor Momsen we swear), as well as Haim, Sigrid and many more, running reviews throughout the weekend.

Besides the obvious enjoyment of listening to our favourite bands in the English summer heat (23 degrees! Pack suncream everyone, our pale skin can’t handle those beams), the line up of comedians and entertainment has also caught our attention and we will be sure to pay Bill Bailey a visit, along with Tape Face and America’s Got Talent’s Piff the Magic Dragon. 

Sun, beer, good friends and even better music will see out the end of August on a high. Join us here for reviews, highlights and just because you can - and wish us luck amidst the post GCSE result teenage angst. Whether helping to heal or celebrate, this festival looks confident it will be one to remember.
