A guitar used by Kurt Cobain during Nirvana's famed performance at the 1992 Reading Festival will be displayed at a show marking the event's history.
The guitar Kurt Cobain played at the Reading Festival will go on show
The Reading Museum exhibition, "Music, Mud and Mayhem - 30 Years of Reading Festival", also features items from the Stranglers and the Foo Fighters.
It will showcase music, memorabilia and film from the festival since it first arrived in the Berkshire town in 1971.
The doors will open on the exhibition on 19 August.
Curator Matthew Williams said: "The festival is a rite of passage that many young people go through and we're hoping to capture that sense of adventure in this exhibition."
The guitar from Nirvana's 1992 headline performance - when Cobain came on stage in a wheelchair - is expected to be the main attraction of the exhibition, which runs until 28 November.
The festival is now in its 30th year after promoters failed to get a licence for two years in the 1980s.
The August Bank Holiday weekend festival is said to bring in more than £7m to the town and attracts about 80,000 fans.
