Reading Festival 2017 Ashdown Artist Line-up

Bastille, Rat Boy, You Me at Six, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes & more...

Everybody loves a bank holiday weekend, and as the August bank holiday weekend approaches, there’s only one thing on many a music-lover’s mind. Reading Festival.

The Reading Festival is one of the UK's oldest and most popular music festivals in existence and has hosted many of the globe’s most famous acts over the years.

Just as you’d expect, Ashdown’s globally celebrated series of bass guitar amplifiers will be maintaining their presence at their year’s Reading festival, with artists including Bastille, Rat Boy and You Me at Six.

Friday 25th has turned out to be a busy day for Ashdown with Bastille and Rat Boy on the main stage and You Me at Six on the NME/BBC Radio 1 stage. Bastille’s Will Farquarson, Rat Boy’s Liam Haygarth and You Me At Six’s Matt Barnes each chose Ashdown’s ABM series when playing live.

For 20 solid years, Ashdown’s flagship ABM range has remained a firm favourite of bands, musicians and stages across the world thanks to its ability to continue to deliver superb bass tone and rock-solid build reliability.

Representing Ashdown on Saturday 26th, Tom 'Tank' Barclay will be on stage with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes with his brand new 2 x BTA 400 Rig delivering 800 watts of pure valve power.

Our good friends at John Henry’s will be supplying backline to the festival, so you can expect to see a number of VU meters scattered around the festival ground over the weekend.

Stay tuned for festival highlights, photos and more!
