Reading And Leeds Festivals bans flags

NME.COM wants to know what you think about the decision

Reading And Leeds Festivals bans flags
Reading And Leeds Festivals will not allow fans to carry flags into the festival arenas this year (August 28-30), organisers have confirmed.

The move comes as festival officials attempt to give all fans the best possible view while watching bands, according to information on the festival's website.

"Flags won't be allowed in the arena. They restrict the view of people behind," the website states.

And NME.COM wants to know what you think about flags at festivals.

Do you back Reading And Leeds' bosses decision to ban them? And what are your experiences of flags at festivals generally. Do you hate flags or are you in favour of them? Perhaps you were planning on taking one to Reading or Leeds?

Let us know what you think by emailing us at with Flags in the title along with your full name, where you're from and, if you have got them, any pictures of you with flags at a festival.
