The Reading Festival and its counterpart in the city of Leeds are two Britsh festivals that happen at the same time with the same artists performing on the August Bank Holiday. They take place during the last weekend of August. Reading Festival 2017 will be held on the following dates, from 25 to 27 August. The festival started in 1961, but the idea of a simultaneous festival in Leeds only came about in 1999.
