Reading Rocks - Reading Rock festival 1978

Reading Rocks - Reading Rock festival 1978

Enjoying Glastonbury 2022 from the comfort of a home cinema reminded me of the years we enjoyed Reading Rocks. These few photos and fuzzy memories are all that remain. It looks far smaller in scale and so much more relaxed than the big festivals we see on the TV these days. The music reached everywhere on the site but on the stage was “over there”, some way away from our spot on the grass field. Although there was an Eidophor, the big television screen which showed close-ups of the musicians in black and white, but the picture was dim and hardly worth it, even after dark. I recall we laid back and enjoyed the sunset and the moon amongst the smells of cooking on camping stoves and the burger bars at the edge of the field.
