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. 

Just look at 2019's lineup, which features headliners the Foo Fighters, The 1975, Post Malone and Twenty One Pilots, as well as the likes of Bastille, Billie Eilish, Blossoms, Denis Sulta and Stefflon Don coming up the rear.

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.
