Here’s What The Weather Forecast Says For Reading & Leeds Festivals 2019

What will the weather be like at this year’s Reading & Leeds?

As we sit here drenched in Kerrang!’s London office avoiding going outside for the rest of the day, we’ve all been thinking about next weekend’s huge Reading & Leeds festivals, and if we’re going to be suffering even more downpours across the August bank holiday weekend.

Luckily, however, the latest weather report is out courtesy of AccuWeather.com, and it looks like the three-day bash isn’t going to suffer too badly at all in comparison to the UK’s typically soaked fests. While Reading is the slightly warmer/drier of the two, even Leeds will have its brighter moments, with both sites mostly either cloudy or sunny.

Check out the gist of what it’s going to be like on each day below.

Reading Festival

Friday, August 23
21 degrees. “Morning low clouds, then clouds giving way to some sun.”

Saturday, August 24
23 degrees. “A morning shower in the area; otherwise, times of clouds and sun.”

Sunday, August 25
22 degrees. “Mostly cloudy.”

Leeds Festival

Friday, August 23
20 degrees. “Sunshine and some clouds.”

Saturday, August 24
21 degrees. “Times of clouds and sun.”

Sunday, August 25
21 degrees. “Cloudy.”

We’ll continue to keep you updated as the festivals draw closer…

Reading Leeds 2019 Updated July

Once of the biggest talking points of the weekend is surely set to be twenty one pilots’ debut headline slot. We asked frontman Tyler Joseph what fans can expect from his and Josh Dun’s performance, and he enthused:

“It’s tough to get everything in our live show to translate over into a festival set, but there’s something special about festivals, and something special about being outside, too. And that set is going to be like no other set we’ve ever played. There’s definitely an air of unpredictability, and you don’t really know exactly what to expect. You’d be a fool to assume that everybody is there to watch you – or even know who you are. So there’s a bit of a competitive edge to it, because there’s so many awesome bands on the bill, and so being motivated to rise above that giant pool of talent, and to make your mark, is something that we’re really excited to step up to that challenge.

“The last time we played Reading was one of my favourite sets ever. I did a stage-dive and climbed over the top of 10,000 people, and had a few people pulling on me in the process, but I rather enjoyed it! I thought it was a lot of fun, and the energy was amazing. I can’t wait to do it all over again – we’ll see what happens this time…”
