The Reading and Leeds Festivals are offering free tickets to charity volunteers.

The annual music festivals, along with a number of other popular summer events, are offering fans the chance to see hundreds of acts for free in return for their volunteer work with the Global Citizen charity.

The organisation has united with 20 of Britain's most in-demand summer festivals - including Bestival, Wireless, Lovebox and Latitude - in a bid to ask festival fans to help provide 28 million under-privileged children with an education by 2018.

Fans of the events' headline acts such as Arctic Monkeys, Blink 182, Outkast, Foals and Chase & Status simply have to register to become a Global Citizen at globalcitizen.org/tickets, where they can earn ''feel good points''.

Each pair of festival tickets requires a different number of points, which can be earned by watching videos on the site or signing petitions to get funding for global education.

Lovebox festival director Rob Silver said: ''Lovebox is delighted to support the Global Tickets Initiative. In a world of such great abundance, it is a disgrace that people and populations are still living in extreme poverty in the 21st century.

''If we all took just one action, however small, our generation can hand over a world to future generations we can be proud of.''
