Well that’s another Leeds Festival gone! The years seem to fly by and I guess it won’t be long until Leeds Fest 2012 is upon us, in fact rumours have already started about who will be headlining! What did everybody think to the festival this year, happy or disappointed?
Despite all the comments which surrounded the festival regarding the quality of the acts I thought it was fantastic and one of the best yet! I must admit that I wasn’t quite sure about the headlining acts and I had made this clear to many people but WOW they were great. I really can’t fault the performances which were provided and the crowd was as epic as always. Someone had mentioned that the festival didn’t sell out but it seemed to have plenty of people there so I won’t be complaining about that.
As always the organisation at Leeds was superb and the security was visible which helped to keep everybody well behaved. The traffic leading to Leeds is always terrible and I guess next year I will be setting off even earlier!
Whilst I am not a massive Frank Turner fan I thought he was great and really interacted with the crowd. Whilst most of his set was from his 2008 album Love Ire & Song I thought it was top quality and a real crowd hit!
I can’t really criticise any of the bands and I don’t think it would be fair to really. The headline acts proved why they had been selected and all of the crowd loved it. I heard plenty of people saying this was the best Leeds Festival ever, what are your opinions on this?
Personally I thought the band of the weekend was Pulp, in fact I don’t think many people would argue with this. The sound produced by the band was truly epic and they looked miles ahead of other bands which had performed. Personally I enjoyed Do You Remember The First Time, Pink Glove and Razzmatazz.
What did everyone else think to the festival? Some people may have been disappointed with the line up but I’m not too sure who else could have been chosen, who would other people suggest?
I got a message yesterday stating that early bird tickets would be going on sale shortly for next year, I am assuming these will be snapped up very quickly! What are people’s thoughts on next year, will you be going or considering a different festival to attend?
