Hi all,

First time to Reading on Sunday - can anyone tell me if they have barriers in the crowd at Reading? If so, how do they do access to the front section (first come first served I guess?)

Thanks

not first come first served - there's barriers in front of nme and main but you just walk around them there is no golden circle restricted access thing going on.

I'm guessing that the V shape was for security to be able to keep an easier eye on the crowd.

Also didn't some of the bands have a platform/runway going out into the crowd (hence the V shape)?
