RELIVING READING IN 2022


WORDS + PHOTOGRAPHY EVA PENTEL







For most teenagers - and our - first festival experience, Reading still holds a special place in a lot of peoples' hearts. Although it has evolved a bit over the years, there are still thousands of young people ignoring their recent school results and having one of the best weekends of their lives. They may leave not remembering the finer details, but they will be talking about it for years to come! Reading 2022 didn’t disappoint; Arctic Monkeys, Little Simz, and Wolf Alice stole the show, and we caught up with some amazing up-and-coming artists. We can confirm you can still hear ‘Alan’ being shouted around the site (we still don’t know why), drink warm cider and watch some of the best bands in the world with your friends!

This year Eva Pentel was backstage taking polaroids - have a look through our gallery to see who she caught up with!
