Leeds Festival takes place annually on August bank holiday. Traditionally a rock music festival, Leeds is a major talking point of UK festival season. 

Today, Leeds Festival thrives as a field of dreams for teenagers who have received their GCSE / A-level results. It’s one huge blow-out before college or university begins. 

Five days camping and four days of music. Recent line ups were criticised for their lack of gender diversity. The festival generally forgets to book women. 

When it comes to genre diversity, however, Leeds Festival leaves no stone unturned. In 2017, Leeds is more than a rock music festival. It’s a popular music festival. Inspired heavily by BBC Radio 1 playlists.

Read and discover the latest announcements from Leeds 2017 below.

Festival dates: 25 – 27 August
