Rockin' Out in Reading

Wednesday 19 September, 2018

By Field & Lawn

The Field and Lawn team was once again invited back to provide marquees for the world-famous Reading Festival.

An event which launched back in the 60’s, Reading Festival attracts a very different crowd of music fans today. Over 100,000 attendees enjoyed a range of diverse acts such as Post Malone, Fall Out Boy, Dua Lipa and Kings of Leon.

Field and Lawn supplied over 30 tents totalling 3,355 sqm of coverage. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the team, artists could be catered for, attendees could shower, a 600 strong medical team could operate in a safe (and dry) environment, and VIPs could enjoy their favourite tipple in relaxed surroundings.  

One hospitality tent in particular raised a few eyebrows. This could have been down to the marquee being completely lined in red. A few minutes in there certainly affected the eye sight, as I’m sure you’ll see from our photo.

The weather was relatively kind for the duration of the festival, though we did experience heavy rain on the Sunday. Thankfully, our tents remained dry and provided plenty of respite for the festival-goers.

Field and Lawn has provided tents for Reading Festival since 2005, and we’ve enjoyed seeing how the festival has grown and developed over that time.
