Bombay Bicycle Club, more for secret Reading 2011 shows
Enter Shikari, Simian Mobile Disco to play Bollocks To Poverty tent
Chris Eustace - 16 August 2011
Bombay Bicycle Club, Enter Shikari, Simian Mobile Disco and festival compere Huw Stephens will all help ActionAid’s youth wing celebrate its
tenth year at the festival by playing unpublicised DJ sets in the charity’s tent at the event, with
fans having to guess when the performances will take place.
ActionAid Events Officer Lisa Telfer said: “This year we wanted to treat Reading goers to something really special. I don’t want to big it up too much or we might have to close the tent! My tip to fans is to keep popping by the ActionAid tent or look out for clues on Twitter.”
You can watch a film about Huw Stephens’ trip to Kenya to see some of the charity’s projects above.
My Chemical Romance, The Strokes, Pulp and Muse headline Reading Festival 2011, which takes place at Richfield Avenue, Reading on 26–28 August.
