Leeds Festival is the sister event of Reading Festival. Rock, pop, indie, electronic and alternative music take centre stage across the UK's public holiday weekend every August, packing in well over 150 artists on 6 stages.

The planet's biggest names come together with a smattering of comedy thrown in for good measure, creating a unique pair of weekend festivals that have never stood still or sat back on their reputation.

A gigantic festival site and a typically friendly Northern English atmosphere make Leeds an unbeatable experience, with Europe's ever-broadening music taste reflected in a lineup that couldn't fail to satisfy.

Since moving to Bramham Park from Temple Newsam in 2003, Leeds Festival has maximised the site's endless space. A huge arena allows for 6 performance stages the respect they deserve, with sound-bleeding minimised while keeping the walking distance manageable.


Address

Bramham Park, Leeds, LS23 6LS, United Kingdom

FAQs

From Leeds/Bradford International Airport, the number 757 bus runs every 20 minutes into the centre of Leeds, which is about 30 minutes away. From there, shuttle buses will be running to the festival site. Stay tuned for more details.

All ages can attend, but those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone under 12 gets in free but, again, only if accompanied by an adult.

There is no on-site box office, all UK tickets will be dispatched by Royal Mail Special Delivery and any overseas customers will need to collect their tickets at a venue near the festival site with further details shared closer to the time.
