"I remember us having a designated poo tent" - Reading festival horror stories, from the bands playing
If you ask bands for their favourite stories from Reading & Leeds of years gone by, you get a surprising number involving poo and wrecked tents, which frankly makes going to a festival sound like the worst thing ever. Think we’re exaggerating? Well…

HECK


“The most memorable and debauched stories always come from the camp site, I remember us having a designated poo tent in one of my first years which was a rather glamorous affair that ultimately resolved in a drunken member of our group swinging a bag of fresh poo around his head. I nearly cried.”

SUNDARA KARMA


“A few years back some friends who we weren’t camping with said they got poo chucked at their tent, turns out the poo chucker was our other mate Mark.”

INHEAVEN


“Someone pissed on my tent whilst I was sleeping the first year I went.”

BLOSSOMS


“I was at Leeds with Myles in 2012 before we were friends and I saw him jump on someone's tent and they kicked him in the head whilst he was on the floor.”

FICKLE FRIENDS


“Chris told me a story about this girl who dropped her phone in one of the open hole pit toilets and stupidly decided to go in after it - she ended up being stuck inside there for like 20 mins as she needed help to get out - fucking bleak.”
