For epic lineups, head to Leeds
Leeds Festival is one of the UK's most renowned rock music festivals, simply put. Each year, the Yorkshire-based giant welcomes a show-stopping roster of the finest rock and pop acts, with a diverse billing that also spans house, drum and bass, metal, techno, grime, and much more.
Sibling to Reading Festival, the pair have become two of the country's most famous music festivals, establishing themselves as a rite of passage for young festival-goers celebrating over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
Leeds Festival's previous lineups read like a who's who of rock music royalty, with icons such as Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blink 182, Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters having all topped the bill since its maiden voyage back in 1999.
The past decade however has seen the festival look beyond the heavy guitar riffs, now embracing and welcoming artists from across the genre spectrum such as Kendrick Lamar, Dave, Halsey and Stormzy. That said, it's little wonder Leeds Festival remains at the forefront of the UK music scene.
Bramham Park is the quintessential British festival site. With endless space and huge arenas throughout, it is an ode to the major names that the festival attracts year on year.
