The good news is the last time I checked there were still some weekend tickets left for this year’s Leeds Festival which is looming rapidly into view.
Taking place from August 23-25, all of its sister event Reading’s tickets have now completely sold out but music fans have still got the chance of seeing an amazing array of bands at Leeds if they are quick.
As well as the headliners Green Day, Eminem and Biffy, Leeds Festival will feature more than 200 artists, with UK festival exclusive performances from System of A Down, Fall Out Boy, Skrillex, Deftones, City and Colour and more.
Also featured will be , Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, Azealia Banks, Alt-J, Tame Impala, Funeral For A Friend, Johnny Marr, Foals, British Sea Power, White Lies and more.
Other exciting names confirmed to perform include Devlin and Wretch 32 on the all new BBC Radio 1Xtra Stage, comedy from Judah Friedlander World Champion and Russell Kane, plus Alkaline Trio and Shikari Sound System playing on the Lock Up and the new Rock Stage respectively.
There may also be a few day tickets remaning.
