Thousands of people have made the most of the Bank holiday sunshine at Bramham Park during Leeds Festival 2015.
The two festivals, Reading and Leeds 2015, saw over 150,000 fans turn out for a weekend of music.
Performances across the weekend included Years & Years, Charli XCX and hundreds of performances from artists, bands, comedians and DJs.
Showcasing his second album ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’, Kendrick Lamar performed with a full band, bringing hip hop rock to the masses for his inaugural Reading and Leeds performance.
The Relentless Stage returned to Leeds Festival kicking off proceedings on Thursday night along the tree-lined avenue with a great set from Bondax. DJ EZ, Oneman and Luke Mowberry, the winner of the prestigious ‘Here To Be Heard’ DJ competition were just some of the DJs to bring the noise and get the party started. Pulled Apart By Horses headlined the Dance to the Radio Stage at Leeds the same evening with a blistering set that brimmed with thrills and menace.
Festival Republic's Melvin Benn said:
“This year has been an incredible highlight for Reading and Leeds.
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.”
Weekend and Instalment tickets for Reading & Leeds Festivals 2016 will be on sale Tuesday 1st September at 9am for a limited time at this year's price of £205.00.
