“RIP Summer 20”: Fans react over cancellation of Reading & Leeds Festival

Due to ongoing coronavirus crisis, this year’s Reading & Leeds Festival is cancelled, and fans have expressed their disappointment.

The twin-city festival was due to take place across August Bank Holiday weekend with headline sets from Rage Against The Machine, Stormzy and Liam Gallagher. 

“First the Euros now Reading and Leeds? Corona’s gone too far now RIP Summer 20”, was the reaction from a fan of British festival.

One fan wrote: “Reading and Leeds cancelled. It’s official. Summer ruined. Need to find a new job.”

Most of the UK’s scheduled summer festivals have now been cancelled because of COVID-19, including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight‘s 2020 editions.
