A rite of passage for UK festival-goers
Leeds Festival is one of the UK's most famous rock music festivals. Sibling to Reading Festival, the northern twin was founded in 1999 and has since hosted some of rock and indie's biggest stars, such as Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Oasis and Foo Fighters.
Now though, the festival has embraced other genres and welcomes artists from the world's of grime and hip-hop, house and techno, and jungle and drum and bass. But it isn't just about music at Leeds, with the festival also laying on a lineup of comedy, as well as film screenings and more.
So popular has the weekender become, it is now regarded as a rite of passage for all young music fans, with nearly all veteran festival-goers having been at least once.
The Leeds Festival 2019 lineup will be announced closer to the festival. The last edition included sets from Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon, Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, Travis Scott, Post Malone, Wolf Alice and many more.
Bramham Park is the quintessential British festival site. With endless space and huge arenas throughout, it is an ode to the major names that the festival attracts year on year.
