The Reading and Leeds Festivals are a pair of music festivals that take place in Reading and Leeds in the UK annually on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the bank holiday in August.
Main stage – major rock, indie and alternative acts
NME/Radio 1 stage – less well-known acts, building up to an alternative headline act
Festival Republic stage (formerly known as the Carling stage) – acts with less popular appeal and breakthrough acts
Radio 1 Lock Up Stage – underground punk and hardcore acts
Dance tent – dance music acts, on the day that the above stage does not run
Alternative tent – comedy and cabaret acts plus DJs
BBC Introducing Stage – Typically unsigned/not well known acts
I know a few Facepunchers attend these.
