Posted on the 25 April 2018 by Spectralnights

Now in its sixth year, Are You Listening? Festival takes place throughout the center of Reading this Saturday (28 April). Supporting Reading Mencap, the festival brings some of the nation’s finest alternative bands to Berkshire and this year might just be their best line-up yet.

Reading’s Are You Listening? Festival takes place this weekend

Here are just a few of our top picks from the festival:


Probably the UK’s most important band right now – and they put on an exhilarating live show.

Ben Marwood

A 2000 Trees legend, Ben’s songs will simultaneously break and warm your heart.

Field Music

Fresh off the success of new album ‘Open Here’, the Sunderland art-poppers will play what promises to be a very special show in the grand surroundings of St Laurence Church.

Warm Digits

We loved recent single ‘Better Friction’ and their set promises to be full of even more huge anthems.

Drugstore Romeos

A captivating and goosebump-inducing band that will make you feel like you’re in Twin Peaks’ Bang Bang Bar.

Carnival Youth

The Latvian indie-poppers continue to go from strength to strength with recent single ‘Love is the Answer’ hinting at a danceable Future Islands-esque tone in the near future.


A fun duo from Liverpool

Have You Ever Seen the Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?

Well, why wouldn’t you go and see a band with this name?
