Britain’s biggest rock n roll riot
As synonymous with rock music as skinny jeans and unwashed hair, Leeds Festival is the UK’s infamous rite of passage that matches exclusive headliners with the next generation of rising stars across eight packed stages of alternative goodness.
Always a sell out event, the festival now brings together the finest rock, metal, dance, grime, hip hop and cutting-edge pop for an August Bank Holiday weekender bender that goes on until the very early hours.
On top of that, there's room for comedians and cinema, silent discos and seismic DJs, five-a-side football and an atmosphere that's among the most unbeatable in the country. The only question is: can you keep up?
