Readipop Festival (formerly Caversham Festival) is Reading's homegrown music and arts festival showcasing both local talent and internationally loved bands, with The Blockheads, Dreadzone and Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens as your headliners.


Here's a glimpse of what you have to look forward to this 8-10 July

  • Over 100 bands playing across the weekend of every genre
  • A world music parade featuring  bhangra, samba and more
  • Workshops for you to get involved and learn some moves for yourself!
  • Comedy, cabaret, and spectacular performance art
  • Delicious international streetfood stalls and well stocked bars by Purple Turtle
  • A free section of the festival with stalls selling unique goods, crafts and skills so you'll be able to pick up some unusual gifts and support local businesses

We are a family friendly festival with lots of free activities for kids such as a funfair and arts and crafts.


Individual days are priced at
Friday 8th - £10

A weekend ticket will get you entry to see over 100 bands across the weekend for less than what it would cost to see just one of the headliners!
