How to watch Sunday at Reading 2022: live stream the second day of the festival online from anywhere today
Whether you’re a little worse for wear or ready to party through the night for the third time in a row, Sunday at Reading is an unmissable occurrence. With 2022 boasting an incredible line up across the board, today’s acts are some of the shining stars of modern pop and rock – despite the absence of a certain band. And, if you’ve had better things to do than wade through a muddy field in a daze this weekend, there’s still a super simple way of catching the action anywhere. Here’s how to watch Sunday at Reading 2022.
Yes, we know Rage Against the Machine pulled out, and despite being almost the antithesis of the Californian quartet, The 1975 are worthy headliner stand-ins. Backed by Charli XCX, Run the Jewels, Denzel Curry and more, Main Stage East is a force to be reckoned with.
However, with Main Stage West boasting Halsey and Bastille, Aussie rockers DMA’s, and Bradford bassline jokers Bad Boy Chiller Crew, it could be a difficult decision who to end your weekend watching.
Elsewhere, Hybrid Minds, Arrdee, Danny Brown, 100 Gecs, Beabadoobee, Ashnikko and tons more will be performing, so whatever you’re into, there’ll be something to feast your eyes and ears upon.
If you’re not on the frontline, 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 Sunday live stream from anywhere – starting with how to watch Reading Sunday for FREE in the UK.

How to watch a Reading Sunday 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.
