Preview: Reading and Leeds 2013

By on Friday, 30th November 2012 at 8:00 am

Now that we’re heading straight headfirst into winter, are you longing for those long summer days, with hopefully relatively dry conditions at your favourite music festival? It seems slightly mental to be talking about Reading and Leeds, but in case you haven’t heard, the tickets go on sale in 1 hour (9 AM) today, Friday 30 November. The festivals return August Bank Holiday, Friday the 23rd August to Sunday the 25th August 2013 at Richfield Avenue, Reading and Bramham Park, Leeds.

Already announced for the event are Californian band Deftones, who will headline the Main Stage, Mercury Prize-winning Cambridge alt band alt-J (pictured at top), who will headline the Radio1/NME Tent, and producer Sub Focus will headline the brand new BBC Radio1 Dance Stage. More bands will of course be announced in the coming weeks.

For the November/December presale only, 2013 tickets are frozen at 2012 prices, plus applicable booking fees: weekend tickets are £197.50, early entry permits are £15.00, campervan permits are £60.00 and lockers are £15.00. Don’t have all the cash right now? No worries: you can put £50.00 now to reserve your spot, with the rest to be paid in March 2013.

If you buy your full-price tickets now, you will be entered in a lucky draw from some pretty great prizes across both Reading and Leeds: 2 x VIP packages (including the chance to watch a band from the side of the Main Stage and five cases of Tuborg); 4 x Backstage tours, plus a Spotify premium account for 3 months and a Reading and Leeds t-Shirt; 10 Backstage tours; and 20 x Reading and Leeds merchandise bundles. Book now (or, er, get ready in an hour to book) to avoid disappointment!
