Leeds Festival Tickets

After a successful first year in Leeds, a continued resurgence in the popularity of outdoor music festivals led to the Reading festival selling out more and more quickly every year. The Leeds leg, however, was plagued by riots and violence which led to problems in retaining its licenceThe worst of these was in 2002, after which Mean Fiddler moved the festival to Bramham Park, near Bramham north-east of Leeds in 2003. Since then, security at both sites has increased and problems have been reduced. Although the Bramham Park site presents more challenges to the stage builders, it is far better suited to the needs of festival goersThe early 2000s saw a varied but predominantly rock line-up, though as the decade has progressed the Main Stage and Radio 1 Stage line-up has featured mostly Indie artists. However, one day  is still traditionally set aside for hard rock and metal.
Last year, the stages were graced with the presence of Metallica, The Killers, Bloc Party, The Cribs, CSS, Queens Of The Stone Age and Vampire Weekend amongst many, many other artists at the festivals that take place over August Bank Holiday weekend (28-30 August)..

Leeds Festival is the sister to the long standing Reading event with performances from lovable indie lads, Blur and an amazing set from The Red Hot Chilli Peppers.The first event was held in Temple Newsham Park, however, after some trouble the event was moved in 2003 to a new home Branham Park.
Amidst the commerciality which has been the butt of the discerning festival goer’s jokes, The Carling Weekend has pulled in many huge acts from all genres of music.
leeds festival director by  Mean Fiddler’s director of festivals, Melvin Benn is one of the most powerful men in the UK festival industry, with Glastonbury, Homelands, and Reading/Leeds all part of his portfolio of responsibility. From his calm manner, you wouldn’t think this is one of the busiest men in music but perhaps that’s exactly the quality you need to succeed when dealing with dilemas by the dozen load, in his case over two sites hundreds of miles apart! Today he kick-starts a series of fortnightly interviews, as VF quizes all the main festival organisers about their events and where they might be going next year - starting with the Carling Reading and Leeds festivals, held consecutively every August bank holiday weekend.

Leeds festival line up include Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead,Rage Against The Machine, The Killers, Metallica,Razorlight, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins,Franz Ferdinand, Muse, Pearl Jam.
