If Glastonbury weekend has given you festival fever even though the weather was slightly unkind and there appeared more mud than ever – there is another huge event to look forward to this summer.  In Leeds it has become one of the best weekends in the Festival calendar and we are all again looking forward to a great Leeds FestivalThe Festival weekend is in August so there is still enough time to get yourself organised and arrange tickets and accommodation.  Many Leeds Festival revellers tend to camp but this is not always what people want from a festival weekend.

The Leeds serviced apartments have welcomed guests in the past that want to experience the Leeds Festival but want a nice cosy bed to sleep in at night.  This year is no different and for corporate groups that will be attending the festival the serviced apartments will definitely provide 5 star accommodation.  The Leeds Festival venue, Bramham Park is easily accessible via the 770 TransDev Leeds to Harrogate bus – the bus leaves Leeds and the bus stop is approximately a 10 minute walk.

If you want to have a weekend in Leeds during the festival period, it is possible to purchase day tickets for entry for around £82 – this allows you the freedom to enjoy the festival for a day and enjoy Leeds city centre too.  If you are purchasing a day ticket it is good to check out who is performing and headlining on each of the dates, Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th.  Below we have listed the headliners for the dates and choose your favourite.

Main Stage

26th – Muse

27th – My Chemical Romance

28th – Pulp

NME/Radio 1 Stage

26th – 2manydjs

27th – Beadyeye

28th – Janes Addicition

There are six stages in total so in addition to the Main Stage and NME Radio 1 stage there is the Lock Up Stage, Dance Stage, Festival Republic Stage and The Alternative Stage. Each stage has its own headliner during the Leeds Festival weekend.  After his sell out tour in Leeds, Russell Kane returns to Yorkshire and headlines on the Alternative Stage on Sunday 28th – if you missed him when he appeared in Leeds, here is another opportunity to see him.

We are excited and we hope that our guests due to stay at the Leeds city centre apartment hotel are excited too. It should as ever be a fantastic festival weekend – lets us hope it stays fine and dry.
