I don't know about through the night, there might well be trains running late so I'd imagine you'd have to pay attention to getting out of there in time.

Looking on timetables that only run to Feb so far, it looks possible?

Yes, that looks do-able.

Foos finish around 11pm (probably?), give yourself an hour and a half roughly to get the f**k out of there and to the train station.

Bit of a walk though.

Might be later trains put on that weekend for the festival too.

Isn't there shuttle buses to and from the centre? I know there is in Leeds.

No idea, can't remember the last time I caught a train/walked to Reading Festival (I drive, darlin').

It depends how deep into the audience you are when it finishes as to how long it'll take you to get out of the arena. But you knew that already!

My usual advice in those scenarios is to start moving to the back during the encores and leg it the minute it finishes or when Everlong starts. Its worth checking their recent setlists to judge the song pattern if there is no encore break.

That's usually my routine, if I'm not deep in the pit.

I often hear 'Everlong' live as I'm walking away from the Foo Fighters.

I've left Reading on the Sunday night the last two years. Last train to London was 2.30 but stopped everywhere. I think we got the 1.30 one which took an hour. It's about a 20 min walk from the site to the station, I'm not sure about how long it takes getting out after the show though, I think they may open a side bit to let folks out quick but I could be wrong.
There are buses to the station but traffic is really slow and you might as well walk as its quicker. Previously a mate got a cab and I walked and I got there first.

In 2012 I watched the whole set from near the front and made it back to the station in plenty of time. This was going back to Bristol but Iím sure trains would still run the other way.
