Reading and Leeds Festival will go ahead this year, it has been confirmed.
Up until now festival organisers had stayed under the radar with their plans for a 2021 event, but following the government’s announcement of a roadmap to lifting lockdown restrictions, they have confirmed this year’s festival will happen. The 2021 event is set to take place from August 27 – 29.
Tickets for this year’s event have been on sale since last summer, despite organisers being unsure if it would be able to happen.
But following the Prime Minister’s address to the nation on Monday (February 22), where he said he hopes to lift Covid restrictions in full by the end of June, the festival has taken to social media once again to advertise tickets. The festival already has its headliners – confirmed as Stormzy, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Post Malone, Disclosure, Liam Gallagher and Queens of the Stone Age. Unlike previous years, the festival has introduced a second main stage, allowing for two headliners on each day of the three-day event.
