It’s almost time for Reading & Leeds 2019. Thanks for making use of our Cold Cans pre-order service sponsored by Carlsberg. All pre-orders are now closed.

To make sure you get to enjoy your cold beer or cider in the campsite, we’ve put together some essential info below which includes everything you need to know to collect your well-deserved cans.

  • Cans are not allowed inside the festival arena, only in the campsite.
    If you fail to collect your order during the stated opening times, you are not eligible for a refund, unless the festival is cancelled.
