Reading and Leeds Festival 2018: Dates, tickets, and everything you need to know

Here's how to get your hands on tickets to next year's event

The iconic Reading and Leeds Festival will be returning next year with what they promise to be another brilliant music program.

With Glastonbury taking a break in 2018, the energetic R&L fest could be your ideal alternative. Tickets are already on sale, and after Reading 2017 sold out, it’s probably a good idea to purchase 2018 tickets ASAP. Don’t worry if you’re waiting for pay-day – you can choose an instalment program. Find out how to get tickets (and more) about Reading and Leeds Festival 2018 below.

Reading and Leeds 2018 Line-up

Who’s headlining?

No Reading and Leeds Festival 2018 headliners have yet been confirmed, but the organisers assure us they’re already working on creating a huge music plan for 2018.

Will there be more women on the line-up?

Hopefully. Reading and Leeds has come under fire in the past for its male dominated line-up. In 2017, the festivals were headlined by Muse, Kasabian and Eminem, leading many to hope for more women to take the main stage next year. Organisers Festival Republic have taken the critique on-board and are launching a new project, ReBalance, to address the issue. The three year programme will offer studio time and a slot on a Festival Republic or Live Nation event line-up to a different female artist for one week each month.
