Reading & Leeds Festivals are upon us

It’s the biggest weekend of the year again for A1 Loo Hire & A1 Wokingham Wet Waste – Reading and Leeds Festival!

A1 have been lucky enough to provide event services for the festival for over 15 years and every year it seems to get bigger and bigger. After months of preparation by the team, the toilets are in and the team are ready for a busy weekend ahead. The drivers always have great stories to tell after the festival, whether it be people stuck in toilets or celebrities they have passed on their rounds. We’ll try and share some stories with you (that aren’t too gruesome) after the event.

We came across a great image of the toilets at the festival from the 15th Reading Rock Festival in 1975 (a little before A1 started providing them). We having been wondering how much the festival may have changed in 31 years, we think there will definitely be less men in flared trousers this year!

We also came across a site plan from the 1975 – we think the festival has got somewhat bigger since then. The line up was a little smaller as well – how many do you remember?

This years line up sees the Foals, Disclosure, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Fall out Boy (to name a few) on the main stages over the three day event. It’s looking to be bigger and better than ever. We’ve included the full line up below as well.
