Leeds Festival: Reading’s Baby Sis

Leeds Festival can’t be separated from its sister: Reading Festival (since 1971), which runs simultaneously during the August Bank Holiday. Despite Reading being in Berkshire County (about 70 km from London) and over 300 km from Leeds in West Yorkshire, both feature the same sizzling headline acts, albeit on alternate days. Reading-Leeds line-ups have included Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eminem, Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, Green Day, Franz Ferdinand, Smashing Pumpkins, Rage Against The Machine, The Killers, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Guns N’ Roses, Arcade Fire, The Cure, Queens of the Stone Age, Biffy Clyro & Blink-182. Today, the 3-day award-winning festival attracts 80,000 fans to the Wetherby Bramham Park near Leeds England.


Leeds Festival: Reading’s Baby Sis

Leeds Festival, originally dedicated to rock, indie, metal and alternative music (today encompassing a broader range of genres), is the newer leg of Reading Festival. Leeds was inaugurated in 1999 to accommodate Reading overflow, but has grown to almost match its big sister’s size and popularity. Leeds fame isn’t surprising since both feature the same headliners, ranging from the Beastie Boys, Eminem and Dizzee Riscal in the early 2000s, to recent lineups with Queens of the Stone Age, Blink-182, Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons.

Moshing & Bottling

Over the years, acts (that also inspired humorous moshpit action) have included Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Biffy Clyro, The Cure, Kasabian, Muse, Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, Radiohead, The Killers, Razorlight, Franz Ferdinand, Pearl Jam, Pixies, Linkin Park, The Prodigy and the first 1999 headliners: The Charlatans, Blur, The Offspring, The Chemical Brothers and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Less fortunate headliners have inspired infamous “bottling” attacks at Reading & Leeds, notably directed at Steel Pulse, Meat Loaf, The Rasmus and 50 Cent, who have been pelted with bottles, mud and turf!

Where Memories are Made

Leeds is a wild party with a history of world-class line-ups. A musical banquet with on-site camping for up to 5 days of full-on partying. It’s a place where music lovers congregate and memories are made... just 20 km from Leeds city, at Wetherby’s Bramham Park in West Yorkshire England.

Leeds is Reading’s baby sister come of age with 80,000 fans of its own!
