The original rock / alternative festival that is split between two cities, Reading and Leeds Festival has something for everyone whether you’re an indie cindy or a hard house bae. Be prepared to get muddy though as these two festivals are notorious for being extra rainy!
Curly haired beauty and Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac is a known regular and since this festival is one for the lovers of guitar riffs and drum beats, work an ‘I’m with the band’ vibe by pairing an old band tee with boyfriend jeans and a chequered shirt tied at the waist. Complete your look with gladiator sandals and a rock ‘n’ kohl smokey eye.
