Saturday afternoon and evening are not to be missed at Reading, but with so many good acts on offer, it’s all a question of preference.

If you’re looking for some afternoon dance music, come down to Sigma on the Radio One stage. With their hit ‘Nobody to Love’ hurtling itself to no.1 back in 2014, Sigma are an afternoon must see.


Next, Manchester’s own Bugsy Malone is not to be missed on the 1Xtra Stage, with his fast-paced grime amassing him a loyal fan base as he becomes one of grime’s brightest talents.


After the heavy grime, you’ll probably be in want of a bit of a lie down. By all means do, but make sure you’re back in time for a fix of Imagine Dragons as they take to the Main Stage. Always a great live band, they are sure to get you ready for the night ahead.


Why not stick around after to get yourself as close as you can to one of the band of your childhood, the Red Hot Chili Peppers take Saturday’s Headline spot on the main stage. Join them and let their memorable hits transport you back to 2005.


However, if you want to end your night with a bang, and by bang I mean new school bangers, the man, the myth, the legend Stomzy will be on the Radio 1Xtra stage headline spot. However, that will mean you will have to miss out on the last hour or so of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but with Stomzy being one of the biggest artists out there, with 3 MOBOs and a BET Music Award, I would say it is probably worth it.
