We, Festival Republic, took over the Reading festival in 1989, under the previous company name of Mean Fiddler. The world renowned rock festival numbers had dwindled to an all time low. So we re-vamped and rejuvenated the festival, adding structure and the most exciting line-up ever. The festival sold out and has continued to do many years over in record breaking time. In 1999, the festival extended to Leeds. The Reading Festival with a footfall of 100,000 and its Northern counterpart, Leeds Festival with a footfall of 80,000, continues to grow from strength to strength.
Reading & Leeds 2014 will take place on Friday 22nd - Sunday 24th August.
The legendary Blink-182 have been confirmed as the first headliners for 2014! Plus Jake Bugg, Disclosure, Metronomy, Of Mice & Men, Wilkinson & I Am Legion& also added to the bill. Lots more acts to come over the next few months.
2014 tickets are now on sale at 2013 prices! Plus the £50 deposit scheme is back and it's new and improved.
