Campsite Information

With a multitude of camping and lodging options, you can customise your Reading experience down to the last detail. Whether you opt to bunk in a Podpad, go glamping in the Pink Moon campsite, take a campervan or pitch your old trusty tent, there are a few things you'll need to know:

- Reading Festival offers the 'Seat Of Luxury', which entitles wristband holders to access luxury bathroom facilities, but if you don't feel like springing for posh loo roll, there are toilet blocks throughout the Arena and campsite areas and single-sex shower facilities in the Yellow and White Campsites. 
- Lockers are available for pre-booking, so get organised and you won't have to worry about leaving your valuables unsecured in your tent!
- Reading Festival has a 24 hour Welfare Tent that can provide you with assistance, advice and emergency accommodation.
- This year, the festival has over 3,000 security officers, stewards and campsite staff, available 24 hours a day to help festival goers.
Reading Festival has an onsite woodsman, who can provide you with the equipment you need to start up a campfire. There are also drinking water points throughout the Arena and campsite.
