Heavyweights such as Foo fighters, The Cure, and Kasabian are all set to headline this years world famous Leeds Festival, and I’m sure you will all agree that they are all worthy of the accolade. Leeds Festival attracts a diverse crowd year on year, from school leavers, to families with pushchairs, all adding to the euphoric atmosphere.
Having witnessed the mud first hand during my first time at the festival in 2008, I can honestly say come rain or shine this festival will not disappoint you. I challenge any Leeds Fest goer to find time to think about the weather, seeing as though there are seven stages packed full of the worlds most excited talent. This year my personal favourites have to be Maccabees, Two Door Cinema Club and Bombay Bicycle Club, and obviously I’m going to be singing along to some classics by The Cure. Home grown superstars Kaiser Chiefs are representing Leeds on the Friday, be sure to check these out, they certainly know how to play the festival!
Recession, recession, recession, bore off already, it’s time that we all just had fun and danced to some proper music at a proper music festival. The kind people at this year’s festival have also taken warning from the big economic meltdown and sprinkled some Leeds Fest magic over our wallets, announcing that all weekend ticket holders will receive a free burger and beer, everyday! Can’t get fairer than that.
Don’t think for a minute that once the main stage bands are finished its time to grab a cup of horlicks and snuggle up with a hot water bottle. Camp site DJ’s pump out music well into the night with the last ones packing away at around 6am, so there is loads of time to get out find one you like. You can even do your own set, just take along your music and apply at the festival, a little bit of exposure always helps.
Maybe I will see you there this year for my fourth pilgrimage, most probably I won’t though, I will be way to busy having fun along with the other 80000 like minded people.
