Reading And Leeds Festivals bans flags

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

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.
