ORGANISERS for this year's Reading Festival have released a list of requirements for revellers looking to attend the music event this year.

The event, which was recently given the go-ahead by Reading Borough Council and taking place at the end of next month, published the requirements list on their website.

The requirements include a proof of full vaccination, meaning either both doses received (with the second at least 14 days prior to the festival), or proof of a negative NHS lateral Flow Test taken before arrival at the festival, or proof of natural immunity.

According to the website, natural immunity can be proven based upon a positive PCR test within 180 days of the festival (including 10 days self-isolation following the result).

A spokesman for the Reading and Leeds Festivals said: "Just like many other festivals and events, Reading festival will ask all ticket holders aged 11 and over to demonstrate their COVID-19 Status before entering the festival."

Festival organisers have also detailed on the website that if a person attending is using a Lateral Flow Test to enter, the result will remain valid for 72 hours since the time the test was taken.

Therefore, event goers will have to re-test once the 72 hour period is up.
