The first acts have revealed for next year's edition of one-day-er Are You Listening? Festival, which has been raising awareness and funds for Reading Mencap since launching in 2013 and takes place at various venues across Reading town centre on Saturday 27th April 2019.
Making their return to the festival are Flamingods, plus there's Rozi Plain, TVAM, Our Girl, Sk Shlomo, Gently Tender, Madonnatron, and Big Lad. Local acts are Aldworth Philharmonic Orchestra, Echoic, Workin' Man Noise Unit, Riot Season, Stats, Penelope Isles, The Keep Cats, The Menstraul Cramps, and Tiger Mendoza. There's much more to be announced.
Festival organiser Dave Maul enthused about the announcement: "Are You Listening? Festival has grown from a newborn music baby to being on the verge of celebrating it's Seventh Birthday. We wish to continue on the foundations we have built and continue to strive to improve the festival experience for artists and punters alike whilst still maintaining our commitment to our charity partner Reading Mencap. We are excited to see how year number Seven will unfold and we hope you will be part of it."
Early bird tickets are on sale, currently priced at £20.
Are you Listening? raises money for local Learning Disability charity Reading Mencap, and since starting out in 2013 has raised nearly £60,000 for the independently funded charity.
