Reading Festival is one of Britain’s most well known music festivals. Reading Festival and Leeds Festival take place simultaneously, sharing the same bill. The Reading Festival is the world’s oldest popular music festival. Known for its diverse lineup, from punk to metal. From Rock to Indie. Dance to electro. We did say the line up is diverse! There is music to suit everyone’s taste.

New acts will also be performing in the smaller tents. Comedy acts will also be performing. This years line up includes:A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Belly, AJ Tracey, Courteeners, Lipa, Fall Out Boy, Annie Mac, Bicep, Ghetts, Hudson Taylor, Kings of Leon, Hannah Wants, Netsky b2b Jaw b2b Slush, Beartooth, The Blaze, Fredo, Fall Out Boy and The Wombats.

Many revellers stay at Hillingdon Prince Hotel Reading as we are a budget hotel. We have a regular shuttle bus that takes people to and from the festival throughout the bank holiday weekend. The shuttle will run with a minimum of 3 people at a time. Which takes the extra hassle of arranging transport to and from the festival.
