Beware of Ticket Scams

Reading Festival is SOLD OUT.


Please beware of scammers and only buy or sell tickets via trusted resellers including Ticketmaster, See Tickets and Twickets. Don’t use other third party sites and unofficial resellers. Please read this important information below.

We’ve seen a huge increase in tickets on sale on sites such as Depop, Ebay, Gumtree and Viagogo etc. Unofficial resales do not give you the same rights and protections. Don’t fall for a scam. There are lots of people selling tickets to Reading and Leeds that might not even exist. If you turn up with a fake ticket you will be turned away from the festival, so don’t chance it. We strongly advise against purchasing from unofficial third party outlets or from people you don’t know on social media.
