A sea of flags, floppy hats and flowery fashion items can mean only one thing - festival season is truly upon us.

And if there is one brand in the UK as excited about the prospect than the headline acts themselves, then it’s Firestone, which is reaching out to a young-at-heart audience through an original new sponsorship at the Reading Festival.

Led by a team of Firestone roadies incorporating a themed booth, the tyre manufacturer is back like never before.

Following a relaunch in 2014, Firestone is reaffirming its core philosophy through its Reading Festival sponsorship – to allow a new audience the ‘freedom to drive’ and discover.

The festival, held in Richfield Avenue from August 28 to 30, boasts some of the biggest names in music since its inception in 1961.

This year is no different, as revellers can expect electrifying performances from the likes of Mumford & Sons, Metallica and The Libertines.

For those lucky enough to have a ticket to Reading, or any other festival this summer, there are a few essential items no weekend warrior should be without.

With this in mind, festival sponsors Firestone are giving away two special festival survival kits worth £250 each to lucky winners, including an air mattress, a tent, a sleeping bag and a torch.

Firestone also has a number of pairs of day tickets to give away on its official Facebook page, which can be won by clicking the ‘like’ button and answering a simple question, at facebook.com/firestone.UK
