With over 90,000 music fans expected to descend on the Richfield Avenue, Reading during the August Bank Holiday weekend, you would be wise to claim your real estate now!
A weekend pass permits access to the campsites and it comes with a wristband that lets you enter or leave the site. Day ticket holders must remain onsite. Early enter passes are available too.
Day tickets (General Admission) do not include admittance to the camping sites.
Since the festival takes place on the banks of the Thames River, there are no alternative accommodations.
Do not let the various 'colors' of campsites confuse you; however, the preferred locations will get full in a hurry.
If you have a favorite spot, it would be prudent to purchase an Early Entry permit, which allows you to arrive on Wednesday.
