Pre-Order Your Festival Cold Cans

At Carlsberg, we always strive for the best, whether that's how we make our beer or how we serve it. The perfect pint is a thing of happiness and should be enjoyed cold, even if you're in the middle of a field at a festival campsite.

That's why at this year's Download, Reading and Leeds festivals we will be providing our unique cold cans service, which allows you to pre-order cold Carlsberg and Somersby cans to collect straight from the campsite. No more carrying around heavy beer cases or drinking lukewarm beer in your tent. 


Wondering how to collect your cans at Reading or Leeds? You can now find all essential information on the festival websites. Click here for Reading and here for Leeds or read more below.
