PentaBuzz: Reading Festival 2016

From 26th– 28th August, Britain experiences a fusion of 2 cities, as Reading and Leeds combine to host a spectacular music event Ft. incredible artists from all over the globe…

Festivals don’t get much bigger than this within the UK and this year’s highly acclaimed list of  acts will be sure to bang any music lover’s proverbial drum.

So, Who’s Playing?

The line-up is nothing short of incredible…

The headliners include The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foals, Disclosure, The 1975, Oliver Heldens and many more…Wow! If none of those names are familiar to you then you most likely need to have a hard look at your iTunes; because as festival line ups go, it doesn’t get much bigger than that…

Camping, Glamping or Neither…

Yes, yes, the usual protocol when attending a festival is to camp…or perhaps it’s all about glamping these days. Yet, we’re not convinced.

Firstly it requires a monumental effort to put up a tent that, let’s face it, will never be assembled correctly…

What’s more, we all know that in Britain you ain’t guaranteed good weather, in fact it’s almost a given that it will rain during an August festival. Yes, when you’re rocking out to the RHCP’s you won’t care about a downpour, however what about after the music finishes and you have to return to you semi-assembled, puddle of a tent…no thanks!

We provide the perfect balance of rest and play...
Our rooms provide pentapeople the perfect balance of rest and play…

Yet, if you fancy checking in to a chic and stylish room after the music finishes for your 40 (or so) winks, join us at pentahotel Reading. We provide the perfect balance of rest and play…and so do our rooms.

The Essentials

Wellies: As is the same with most festivals, Wellies are a must (except apparently at Coachella, which seems to be a catwalk). 100,000 people bouncing up and down in a field is bound to churn up the mud a little…so don’t sacrifice your new Air Max in the name of looking cool…

Sunglasses: In the words of Klangkarussel, ‘If The Sun Don’t Shine,’ sunglasses are still a key piece of festival attire.

Vest Tops: Embrace the ‘Summer,’ boys and girls…

Floral: Another one for both guys and girls…it’s the perfect time to give that hippy style a bash, whether you go for the flower garland or a rather ‘loud’ floral shirt, there’s no better place to get away with it than at a festival!

So, Reading Festival is one of Britain’s most original music events and the fact that they now have a Leeds location emphasises just how popular it is! Why not make sure you’re in peak condition for the whole of the festival and get an uninterrupted sleep at the pentahotel Reading…and if it is an all-night party you seek, then checkout the pentalounge…it’s open 24/7.

We're open 24 hours a day...so the party doesn't have to stop when you walk in...
