Reading Festival 2012 Headliners
Originally a jazz and blues event back in the 1960s, Reading has since left both genres in the past and is now widely regarded as one of the most essential rock festivals of the UK season. The August Bank Holiday weekender rotates its line-up with Leeds Festival, so those up north don’t miss the action either.
With the event fully focused on the music organisers regularly pull out all the stops to deliver a monster line-up that mixes the world’s biggest names alongside plenty of emerging talent.
Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, Arctic Monkeys and The Prodigy have all played in the past and fans should expect a number of festival exclusives as well as a healthy fill of top indie, punk, ska, hip hop, dance and comedy on the five smaller stages.
