Time Out says
Metallica, The Libertines and Mumford & Sons top the bill at the northern leg of Reading and Leeds
Metallica, Mumford & Sons, The Libertines, Royal Blood, Deadmau5, Bastille, Jamie T, Years & Years, Wilkinson, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Run The Jewels + more.
The northern leg of the bank holiday double-festival favourite, Leeds is younger than its sister in Reading but just as popular, messy and music-centric. You won't find any cute arts and crafts tents here, and rock is always at the top of the bill, though the festival's dance and hip hop tents have taken off recently too.
Leeds and Reading always pack an enormous line-up, and this year you can catch headline slots by rock titans Metallica, scruffy punks The Libertines and spiritual strummers Mumford & Sons, as well as the likes of Jamie T, Run The Jewels, Bastille and Years & Years. Most importantly, proceedings should be as raucous and teen-filled as ever.
