Reading Festival History

Thinking of joining us at Reading Festival in 2004? Get yourself up to speed with the history behind Reading Festival with a trip down memory lane courtesy of Reading Museum website!

Take a look through the line ups of years gone by to see which legendary bands have graced the stages of one of the UK's most iconic music festivals.

Our own history with Reading Festival goes back to the early 1990's when some of our staff could be found running the lost luggage cabin.
