Reading may have come first, but second, as they say, is the best. Leeds is the little northern sibling of Reading Festival, sharing its insane line-ups with the north of the country. Since its inception in 1999, Leeds has followed suit in delivering the biggest names in alternative rock, such as Blur, Stereophonics, Travis, Oasis and Linkin Park. This year is no exception, with headliners straight out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Red Hot Chili Peppers. Biffy Clyro. Emo poster-boys turned alt-rock Gods; Fall Out Boy. Plus, there will be performances from exceptional international artists Twenty One Pilots, Die Antwoord, and Cage The Elephant. Compare the line-ups and it’s easy to confuse Reading with Leeds and Leeds with Reading, but each festival is its own beast. Northern weather provides one of the muddiest atmospheres imaginable, and the community spirit of the campsite means that no-one feels the shame of getting messy. Day tickets start from £66.50, while full weekend camping tickets go for as much as £213.00.
If the DIY camping experience is for you, then take advantage of a generous luggage capacity with Megabus. With tickets from as low as £1.50, it’s never been cheaper or easier to drag your temporary home across the country. Our stop at Leeds bus station gets you less than a 30-minute taxi ride from Brahmam Park.
Don’t worry if the mess isn’t your thing; Leeds has you covered. There’s a great range of camping options from solid, colourful huts, to airy pavilions. But it’s really the bathrooms that you’re interested in. Hot running water and clean toilets begin to sound mythical in the middle of a messy festival. Why not continue the ease of your coach ride right through the weekend with a few added extras? Hairdryers. Straighteners. It’s simple to be pretty in punk at Leeds Festival.
