About the festival
Leeds Festival is a huge UK rock music festival, showcasing the very best in rock music alongside a diverse lineup that spans from house and techno to grime, drum and bass and 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.
Leeds Festival's history reads like a who's who of rock royalty, with icons such as Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Muse and Foo Fighters have all played the festival since its inception back in 1999.
But as mentioned, it isn't all about rock at Leeds Festival. The past decade has seen the festival look beyond the heavy guitar riffs, now embracing and welcoming artists from across the genre spectrum, while its side-programme of comedy and film screenings continue to impress.
Fresh for Leeds Festival 2021 will be an incredible six headliners, spread across two main stages for the first time ever. And those six headliners will be Stormzy, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Liam Gallagher, Post Malone, Disclosure and Queens of the Stone Age, with the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Two Door Cinema Club, DaBaby and AJ Tracey also performing across the weekend.
With that in mind, it's little wonder Leeds Festival remains at the forefront of the UK music scene.
