Reading And Leeds Stage Times

You can start planning your Carling Weekend now thanks to organisers publishing stage running orders early. Just don't start planning any riots - because they're going to come down hard...

Click here for all the stage running times at both the Leeds and Reading Festivals, which take place this weekend (25-27 August).

The Carling Weekend is renowned for the dreaded 'band clash' syndrome, where you're often forced to agonise over your two favourite bands – Pixies vs Kasabian was a particular killer last year – so best get planning now.

Organisers Mean Fiddler have also issued a warning to potential trouble makers, following last year's riots at Leeds.

They are urging people to report anti-social behaviour and have warned that anyone starting bonfires, throwing missiles, or putting aerosols or gas canisters on fires will be ejected and banned from all future Mean Fiddler events, including Glastonbury.

There will be more camping staff and, in a further bid to prevent a reoccurance of trouble, Leeds will see more after-hours entertainment than ever.

Events are set to include a DIY Disco running from 11pm to 3am where campers can DJ for half an hour.
