I hadn’t planned on attending Reading Festival the same year as Glasto, but when I saw Arctic Monkeys were headlining I couldn’t turn down the opportunity.
If we are talking mud, sweat and tears – Glastonbury is the festival for you. Personally, Reading was so so much better… no wellies needed and no wet socks. All round the whole atmosphere and environment was much easier on the eye. Also a lot easier to meet new people who are actually your age!
The only negative difference was how rowdy the crowds were in tents here. At Glastonbury you don’t get given the daggers if you accidentally bump into someone and you were almost always guaranteed to be near the front of the stage.
I doubt I would attend Reading Festival again as it’s one of those events you attend when you are younger, admittedly I didn’t see anyone above the age of 21/22 there.
