Tickets to that one were given out by ballot. You had to submit a passport sized photo to support it as people checked on the door.

Though I think I read that there was an rush of the venue by people who didn't get tickets.

oh interesting guess giving passport would put like more regular people off

I actually don't think there is a better set of headliners than Stormzy/RATM/Liam in terms of appeasing their target audience, with the exception of if AM were there too. Something for everyone.

Very true. Appeals to various audiences, I can honestly see r+l 2020 selling out if this is the line up

I mean like Drake/Travis/Kendrick (if he hadn't just played) would fill stormzys slot better too

Got no problem with any of the above just genuinely can't see any playing, except maybe Travis? Would put them all above Stormzy but he definitely fits the demographic better and hasn't been overbooked by r+l

It was similar to Glasto, you had to register beforehand then log on and buy tickets. They did let a bunch of people in without tickets though just before Rage came on

I'm Australian so I might be wrong, but wouldn't the fact that Stormzy is English further endear him as the top of the genre?

Apologies if it’s already been mentioned but on RATM’s tour poster it says when there’s 2 asterisks that RTJ aren’t performing. On the tour dates they’re not saying it’s a festival (Paris instead of saying it’s rock en Seine etc) and there’s no asterisk as RTJ are playing. Have they confirmed RTJ for R&L maybe?

I think this will sell out faster than most years.

I would be very, very surprised if Reading sold out tomorrow. Festivals don't sell out often now a days straight away because of how many others there are and the expanse of Europe festivals too. Day tickets for Rage will probably go within the next week or two.

Reading last year had Foo Fighters, who sell out stadiums every time they tour. Along with 1975 and Post Malone, 2 acts that are ridiculously suited to the current demographic of Reading and it still took it a long while to sell out of weekend tickets. Not sure how quickly Foo's day sold out but it wasn't quick. 

It wont be selling out tomorrow. Unless the line up is genuinely ridiculous and they have acts that no one expected it wont happen.

ok so after some thought i wanna say about a week, to be nice, but i’m still gonna be waiting on the page to buy my ticket as soon as it comes up

i reckon the day tickets will go VERY fast but i can’t see people getting camping to see one band

unless we get a lineup that’s like, biblical in every sense of the word, then yeah i don’t really know how fast but SHIT my brains fucking me about rn

Hi - I've been following the forum since December, but finally decided to comment after today's excitement.

I'm lucky enough to be old enough to have seen RATM play Reading in 1993 - 27 years ago and it was my 5th Reading :)  RATM subbed for Perry Farrell's Porno For Pyros on the Friday night - but it was Rage who stole the show, with the NME describing it the following week as "The First Mosh Pit Visible From Space".  

That performance is still a gig which I would put inside my Top 20 of all time and I've seen more than 2,000 live bands - so bring it on!

BTW - the same weekend had Radiohead supporting Blur on the Melody Maker Stage, which meant I missed Siouxsie and the Banshees on the main stage to watch Radiohead instead.  

Also saw Rage at Reading in 1996 and 2000, but missed out on 2008 because my kids were young - this year I've got them tickets :)

Excited for Run the Jewels and can't wait for 9AM tomorrow.
