One Twitter user daubed Reading & Leeds as the festival starter pack.

Another fan was left confused after The Wombats may have changed from Friday to Saturday, leaving fans who’d purchased day tickets unhappy. We’ve reached out to the organisers for clarification.

Reading & Leeds 2017 ban pineapples

Pineapples were added to the list of prohibited items at Reading & Leeds in 2017, owing to fans of Glass Animals who notoriously bring hundreds of the fruit to the band’s gigs. This is a reference to one of their lyrics, and at the time, their drummer had this to say:

“Anyone who wasn’t bringing a pineapple definitely is now, It’s fruitist. Watermelons are fine, but not pineapples?”
