Leeds Festival organisers have just announced early bird tickets for the 2017 event. Leeds Festival 2017 will be taking place at Bramham Park from 25th – 27th August, and you can snag your weekend pass right away starting at just £213. If you’re hoping that Leeds Fest will be the first thing you mark on your 2017 calendar come Christmas time, you’re not alone. The 2016 event just wrapped up to general acclaim.
Of course, Leeds will never want for attendees. With 12 stages and a whole host of acts to grace them each year, the festival has become a rite of passage for anyone in the North who likes music. The likes of Oasis, Green Day, and the Foo Fighters have topped the line-up over the years, and the headliners continue to be drawn from rock’s A-List.
Never say that Leeds doesn’t roll with the changes though. One of this year’s most popular acts was Disclosure, representing the ascension of hip-hop and dance with the younger generation. Other stand-out acts included Little Simz, Anderson, and Bugzy Malone, and there were plenty of big name bands to steal the show.
Blossoms were chief among them. They’ve just launched an incredibly successful debut album, so these guys have really been turning things up across the festival circuit this summer. Coming to Leeds on Sunday afternoon, they entertained a capacity crowd with tracks such as Honey Sweet, Charlemagne, and At Most A Kiss.
Anyone who checked out Blossoms were surely in attendance for The 1975, who topped the bill on Friday night and cranked out single after single from I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It.
Attendees were able to transition from young up-and-comers to legends of music thanks to the festival’s diverse line-up. The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nas both put on phenomenal shows in front of immense crowds. Nas blended a selection of classics with fresh new tracks, while the LA funk rock icons offered generations of hits to a field of fans who all seemed to know every word by heart.
Leeds 2017 is expected to draw the same fusion of old and new, and you can get there via coach, TransPennine Express, car, or by train and shuttle. Make sure you grab your pass early for the best deal.
