Having grown from a small town and faced many hand changes in its administration, Reading is now one of the recognized financial centers of UK. It is active not only commercially but also has a huge information technology industry. In addition to commerce and industry, this ancient city also hosts the Reading Festival which is one of the biggest celebrations of music held anywhere in England. Although historical records mainly talk about Reading around or after the 8th century, the city is actually way older than that and existed even at the time when the Romans conquered England. During the medieval period, it was an important town and today, is known to the whole wide world for its fantabulous celebration of music.

The city is home to the University of Reading which is one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the world and attracts students from all parts of the world. More tourists are invited by selling Reading Festival tickets. Beginning somewhere in the 1970s, this festival takes place simultaneously with the Leeds Festival and both the festivals are held during the bank holiday of August. It is basically a celebration of music and covers a wide range of musical genres without any law in favor or against any particular genre but in recent times, the genres of alternative, indie, metal, rock and punk have dominated the stages of Reading Festival. This celebration is aimed at entertaining the attendees with some of the world’s most renowned artistes as well as introducing new acts and talents. Different stages are set around Little John’s Farm and are allocated to different kinds of acts. The festival has also introduced and showcased many dance acts and is not purely musical, in the sense that it celebrates music with anything that used music. Reading Festival tickets could be used for the day or even for camping. Weekend tickets automatically include camping while campsites are arranged at the area where the festival is held.

Each year, the festival is growing larger, bigger and better. Its capacity has increased a lot as compared to the past, which for 2011, is estimated to reach 87, 000 attendees bringing in an addition of thousands of people. For music lovers, this festival is worth attending if they can manage to do so. It is immensely happening, lively and simply spectacular and got to be checked out, at least once in lifetime.
