  1. Hi all, Couple of questions about exits and Entrances, a weekend ticket holder staying off site and needing to head towards the town centre after. Does anyone know first of all the best walking route to get into the arena from the station direction? Secondly, on exit will I be able to use the day ticket exit near the main stage as that looks most convenient to get back to the middle of Reading? Is that open from a particular time or is it actually open the whole time for day ticketers to leave? Thanks!

    Secret sets 2018

    Two names who play Reading a lot who are starting or finishing their tour so could potentially do a secret set are Gaslight Anthem and Frank Turner... anything to rule them out?

    What is the presale code for 10? The same?

    I didn't cry but I felt sad knowing that was that, some welling in the eyes, really good gig though, amazed they remained professional till they had finished playing before they themselves lost it!

    Have fun everyone! I don't think I've ever intentionally been to a band's last gig before so it will be emotional!

    Banning Picnic Chairs

    Saw this happen the previous year as well, I get it in the tents where there is not a dedicated area, I think the chairs are somewhat better than the picnic blankets all over the pyramid though which take up square metres at a time!

    Frank carter and the rattlesnakes.....

    I am of the same opinion of you, I was thinking of going anyway, but it turned out to be a highlight followed by another highlight! He really had the crowd going!

    Largest Crowd of the Weekend?

    On the Other I would say Liam was more densely packed than Rag and Bone having tried to escape both towards the end to get elsewhere.

    The National

    It sounded good but of the 4 times I've seen them it was the least gripping set, too many new songs in a row, the atmosphere died where I was sadly, a positive though is I think the gigs later this year will be ace!
