History of Leeds Festival

Leeds Festival dates back to 1999 and featured a star-studded line-up that included Red Hot Chili Peppers, Charlatans and Blur. Back then, a ticket for the three-day event would have cost just £80! The festival originally took place at Temple Newsam but moved to Bramham Park in 2003.  

 

Leeds and Reading are paired festivals, sharing the same lineup over two locations across a bank holiday weekend in August. The main stage hosts big acts spanning rock, indie, metal, dance and hip-hop, while the second stage – often hosted by NME or Radio 1 – hosts up-and-coming names who will most likely be on the main stage in the next few years. There’s also a dance tent hosting DJs and live acts! You’ll find plenty of pop-up bars and food trucks on the site too providing everything from fish and chips to freshly made doughnuts.
