    History

    The Leeds festival was born out of a need for more space at the Reading festival. In 1999, Leeds was used for the first time as a second venue for Reading. Since then, the event has taken place every year alongside its sister festival. The opening and closing acts switch between the two venues so that there is continuity in the line-ups.  The Leeds festival has grown rapidly over the years and supports almost the same number of people as Reading does. There are some differences between the two events though, including the traditions that are followed.
