Reading and Leeds: August 2022
Richfield Avenue | Reading, England
Bramham Park | Leeds, England

Reading & Leeds is a mixed music festival (two of the biggest and oldest in the UK!) running alongside a Bank Holiday weekend in August. Once again Reading Festival will be held at Little John’s Farm on Richfield Avenue, while Leeds Festival will be held at Bramham Park near Wetherby with headliners such as Dave, Arctic Monkeys, Rage Against the Machine, Megan Thee Stallion and Halsey. The lineup is mostly made up of rock, metal, pop, indie and electronic music – with many artists playing at both festivals. Campsites are available in both places, but if you’re like us and prefer air conditioning after a long day in the sun, could we suggest stays at voco Reading (which offers connecting rooms if you’re traveling with a larger group important) ; Crowne Plaza Reading (a 4-minute walk from the festival with a bar in the lobby); and Holiday Inn Express Leeds – City Center Armories (a short walk to the city center and train station, with free breakfast to refuel before heading out for the day). For IHG One Rewards members traveling to Reading, you can earn up to 4x bonus points on your stay! To take advantage of this offer, members can register via ihg.com/4xen.

Midtown Music: September 2022
Piedmont Park | Atlanta, Georgia

“Welcome to Atlanta where the players play…” (literally!). This city has such a rich musical history that in 2002 rapper Ludacris gave it his own anthem. In September, 30 artists will take over Atlanta’s Piedmont Park with a line-up consisting of My Chemical Romance, Future, Jack White and Fall Out Boy, among many others. And while Music Midtown is the premier festival for Southern music lovers, it’s more than just your favorite jams — food trucks, local vendors, and a Ferris wheel overlooking the park provide impressive views of the Midtown skyline. If you want to be in the heart of it all, a stay at Hotel Indigo Midtown puts you just five minutes away. But there are other great hotels tucked away in town like the Kimpton Sylvan Hotel, with an outdoor pool and rooftop bar with panoramic skyline views, plus free amenities like bikes for a ride around town. and coffee/tea service to get you started each morning.
