Saturday 28th April 2018
Are You Listening? Festival is back to get Reading shaking on Saturday 28th April 2018, after their immensely successful fifth birthday earlier this year.
Since launching in 2013, the one-day Festival has raised more than £40,000 for Reading Mencap, a local charity that supports people with learning disabilities and their families. The critically acclaimed Festival won ‘Event of the Year’ at the inaugural Alt Reading Awards and has been nominated for two ‘Pride of Reading’ Awards and a Reading Cultural Award for ‘Best Festival’ in 2017.
The first acts to be announced for next year’s Festival include Bristol’s noisiest punks Idles, following the year of their lives which has seen them support both The Foo Fighters at the 02 Arena in London and The Maccabees on their farewell tour.
