Are You Listening? Festival 2021

Rescheduled date

New date: Sat 24 Apr, from 12:00


Dear Listeners,

With the Coronavirus pandemic continuing to affect our daily lives for the foreseeable future, it is with great sadness that we tell you that there will be no Are You Listening? 2020.  The event will be rescheduled to its usual April placement for next year, Saturday 24TH April 2021, by which time we very much hope social distancing is no longer upon us.

Both the festival organisation and our charity partner Reading Mencap are independently funded and run; the financial effect on us will be heavy.  We kindly ask if you are able to, please keep hold of your existing ticket, where it will automatically be rolled over for the 2021 event.   

However, we know things aren’t easy right now and if you are not in a position to keep hold of your ticket, we understand; you are entitled to receive a face value refund. Either our ticket partner Gigantic, Music Glue or Reading Arts will be in touch regarding the reschedule and will handle and process any refunds on our behalf. If you bought a physical ticket with cash and require a refund please contact us at  For anyone still wishing to attend next year no further action is required. 

We are currently confirming AYL? 2020 Artists for next year and will be announcing new additions to the line-up at a later date.

Are You Listening? Festival has raised almost £70,000 for Reading Mencap over the last eight years. We both thank you for your continued support in what are extraordinary times.

Take care of one another and we hope to see you in 2021.
