If you came here looking to buy tickets for Leeds Festival then you should try some of the official ticket agencies like SEE TICKETS or TICKETMASTER, who have the most stock of weekend tickets, day tickets, early entry tickets, campervan tickets, etc (basically every type of Leeds festival ticket you could ever wish to buy).
"Leeds Music Festival" was an independent fan site that covered the Leeds Music Festival from a fan's perspective since 1999 and was run by the folks over at LEEDS MUSIC SCENE. For a couple of years we were even employed by the event organisers Mean Fiddler (now Festival Republic) to cover the event for the original launch of the official festival website, working backstage writing articles, interviewing bands and keeping the content fresh.
Alongside the festival news and reviews on Leeds Music Scene, this offshoot fan site ran in an independent capacity to provide music fans with all the latest Leeds Festival line up news, rumours and ticket information and operated successfully during a time when the official site (1) did not exist (in so much as there wasn't even an official site) and then (2) did exist but was severely lacking in information.
Over the years we supported the introduction of the unsigned band stage in Leeds (which eventually expanded to become the BBC Introducing Stage and went to Reading too) and helped judge the Futuresound competitions. We broke a number of line up stories and provided a few of those official-yet-unofficial 'festival leaks'. However, as the official site improved its coverage the need for another site dwindled; we closed in April 2013.
If you came here looking to see the latest line up or to gossip about the festival rumours, then sorry but you're no longer in luck. Try the official site for the headliners and stage line ups.
