Reading & Leeds have announced the entry requirements for those attending next month's festivals.

Despite England's 'freedom day' today (July 19), fans will of course still have to prove their COVID-19 status in order to be able to attend the sold-out Reading & Leeds, with those over the age of 11 either needing 'proof of full vaccination' (meaning both doses), 'proof of a negative lateral flow test' or 'proof of natural immunity based upon a positive PCR test within 180 days of the festival'.

Just like many other festivals and events, Reading & Leeds Festival will ask all ticket holders aged 11 and over to demonstrate their COVID-19 status before entering the festival by providing either of the following:

· Proof of full vaccination – both doses received (with the second at least 14 days prior to the festival) OR

· Proof of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at the festival OR

· Proof of natural immunity based upon a positive PCR test within 180 days of the festival (including 10 days self-isolation following the result).

Reading & Leeds will be headlined by a whopping six artists – Stormzy, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Post Malone, Disclosure, Liam Gallagher and Queens Of The Stone Age – with the likes of Machine Gun Kelly, YUNGBLUD, Neck Deep, iDKHOW, FEVER 333 and more on the bill.
