Richfield Avenue is one of the UK's most famous music venues - but you won't find it among a list of top concert halls or stadiums. This often-muddy venue is home to the iconic Reading Festival, one of England's most popular summer music events. If you want to rock out to some of the most exciting musical acts in the world, you can buy or sell tickets for Richfield Avenue on StubHub.
Rock out at the Richfield Avenue festival site
For many years, the Richfield Avenue festival site has exclusively hosted the Reading Festival. Held over three days during the August bank holiday, the festival is paired with the Leeds Festival, with which it shares a line up. Originally a jazz festival, the event has metamorphosed into a pop and rock event with rock, metal, indie and punk being the main genres. The Richfield Avenue farm has been used as the Reading Festival venue since 1971 and sees around 90,000 music fans descend on it every year. Many legendary musicians have played at Richfield Avenue - it has hosted several final gigs, including Nirvana's last UK concert and The Stone Roses' final performance - and in recent years has seen artists such as Kings of Leon, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and Foo Fighters headline the main stage. With many historical moments having been played out on Reading's stages, tickets to Richfield Avenue are not to be missed by any rock or alternative music fan.
Get your boots on for Richfield Avenue
Though classically a rock festival, the organizers have broadened the programme in recent years to include a fair amount of hip-hop - Richfield Avenue hosted Eminem in 2001, 2013 and 2017. With performance areas for major acts as well as new musicians and underground performers, there is almost too much to see and do over the course of three days. The farm at Richfield Avenue is an enormous site that hosts camping besides the numerous different stages; if you don't feel the need to have the full festival experience, day tickets for Richfield Avenue are also available. Situated a short distance from Reading station, the festival site is easily accessible from across the country by car or public transport and, as with any festival venue worth its salt, offers a myriad of catering, camping and other entertainment options besides the music. One of the UK's most popular festival venues and fortunately a lot calmer than it used to be, this is undoubtedly one of the hottest places to be in the summer. Pack your tent and boots without delay - Richfield Avenue tickets are available now to buy or sell on StubHub.
