The Reading festival that takes place in the UK from the 26th-28th August has allowed an extra 11,000 music fans to enjoy the weekend.

On June 8 festival organisers negotiated with the town council and it was agreed that an extra 5,500 day tickets would be released for the Saturday and Sunday line up.

Fans of the line up on these days will be happy, however, with the 20 (US $36) increase on weekend tickets from last year, it has to be considered how much of the case was based on money rather than safety. 

Details on how to get hold of the tickets has not yet been released but will be announced by the organisers soon.
