How to watch Saturday at Reading 2022: live stream the second day of the festival online from anywhere today
There’s nothing quite like a Saturday at Reading – true, you’ve already drunk most of your cans and you’re regretting your one-man pop-up tent in the morning, but come midday you’re back into the swing of things with plenty to look forward to. However, if you’ve done the “sensible” thing and opted to stay at home out of the mud, there’s still a super simple way to catch all the action – which includes massive sets from Arctic Monkeys and Bring me the Horizon – from the comfort of your sofa. Here’s how to watch Saturday at Reading 2022.
Reading’s Saturday line in 2022 is arguably one of the finest we’ve seen for years. Alex Turner and co. will get you dancing like a robot from 1984 (don’t place bets on hearing debut album material, though), with AJ Tracey, Wolf Alice and Irish post-punks Fontaines DC warming up the Main Stage East crowd beforehand.
For those who remember Myspace, spray-on Topman jeans, chequered Vans and nose-length fringes, Main Stage West may be more appealing, with Bring Me the Horizon and Enter Shikari as the must-see acts of the weekend.
With Krept & Konan, Unknown T and American alt-hop star JPEGMafia bolstering the Radio 1Xtra stage, plus Wilkinson and Sigma delivering 170bpm bangers on the dance stage, there’s veritable glut of tuneage on offer.
If you’re not in the trenches, though, the kind folk at the BBC are offering a ton of performances for FREE. All you need to do is read on as we explain how to watch a 2022 Reading Saturday live stream from anywhere – starting with how to watch Reading Saturday for FREE in the UK.

How to watch a Reading Saturday live stream from anywhere
Unfortunately, if you try to watch your domestic coverage of Reading Fest 2022 from somewhere outside your home country, you’ll soon find a problem – geo-blocking.
That’s where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It’s a common problem for streamers all over the world, but there’s an easy solution. The best VPN – otherwise known as a virtual private network – can alter your IP address to make it appear like you’re somewhere else. While this can be used for privacy, it can also be used to access your preferred streaming platform back home, even when you’re out of the country.
