This year will be the 5th in a row that I’m off to Leeds Festival. The first time I went was back in 2002(!) and it’s pretty sweet to see how much the August Bank Holiday weekend has evolved since back int’day. One of the main things I’ve seen a massive change in is the weather! I remember it being one of the hottest weekends of the year when I first went, but now the weather is so temperamental you simply cannot predict it. Regardless of that though, I certainly never let it rain on my parade – even when the mud is knee deep like it was 2 years back.
UK Festival Guide: Leeds Festival
WHERE: Bramham Park, Leeds
WHEN: 26th August – 28th August
WHAT: A good mix of indie, dance and rock to get you through the bank holiday weekend.With even a comedy tent thrown in too.
There’s no way to get bored with a load of facilities such as a fairground, market stalls and so many stages it’s easy to get a little lost (but in a good way). There’s also Piccadilly Party at Leeds which provides a bangin’ night until 6am every day of the festival.
Sometimes the main campsites can be a little bit wild (Yellow, I’m looking at you), so don’t expect to get tooooo much sleep if you end up in one of the rowdy ones, however, you will find quieter campsites which are tailored more towards families where it’s a little more peaceful.
