As the dust settles on another Leeds Festival the organisers have announced that they were delighted with the way this year’s spectacular event went at Bramham Park.

The 17th combined Reading and Leeds 2015 saw more than 150,000 festival fans revel in an unforgettable weekend of music, including headline acts Mumford & Sons, Metallica and The Libertines, plus hundreds of performances from artists, bands, comedians and DJs.

Weekend and instalment tickets for Reading and Leeds Festivals 2016 will be on sale from 9am tomorrow (Tuesday) for a limited time at this year’s price of £205.

Tickets are available from www.seetickets.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk and the dual site event will take place on August 26, 27 and 28, 2016.

Festival Republic’s Melvin Benn reflected on the weekend just gone.

He said: “This year has been an incredible highlight for Reading and Leeds.

“Metallica brought us the largest production in the history of the festivals, whilst Mumford & Sons and The Libertines proved themselves worthy of their headline name.

“I would like to thank our sponsors and media partners for their ongoing support. I know it will be difficult to beat, but I can already promise 2016 is going to be worth the wait.”
