Leeds Fest, which takes place across August bank holiday weekend at at Bramham Park, will also be headlined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I couldn’t be more excited about this announcement. A co -headline with two of the most promising British acts out there; Foals secret set last year was a highlight for me, as I’m sure their debut headline slot will be, coupled with the phenomenal Disclosure – we’re very proud to be able to give these acts the recognition they deserve.
