The North's biggest musical extravaganza came to an end last night when Sheffield's very own Arctic Monkeys brought the curtain down on this year's Leeds Festival. And today the thousands of fans who camped out were today packing up and heading home. Lisa Walton reports.
Seventy thousand music fans are heading home from Leeds festival. The event held at Bramham Park featured big name acts from the music industry.
The clean up operation is now underway and all lost property will be donated to charity.
Sheffield band the Arctic Monkeys closed the event, and Melvin Benn, Leeds Festival organiser, said it will be difficult to top their performance next year.
Fans have just found out homegrown band Pulled Apart by Horses will no longer play at Leeds Festival tonight.
It is thought one of the band members is ill.
The alternative rock band, from Leeds, were due to take to the main stage today.
The weather has held out for music lovers on the second day of Leeds festival
Tonight Queens Of The Stone Age and Paramore top the bill at Brahman Park.
Leeds based band Eagulls are also making their first appearance at the festival and said they are looking forward to playing to a home crowd.
For music fans it's the big one this weekend - Leeds Festival is underway at Bramham Park on the outskirts of the city. And as ever hordes of young and not so young fans are there already and will be joining in all the fun across the next few days. Lisa Adlam got her wellies on to join them.
Leeds Festival continues to draw top quality acts and large crowds because of its integrity, according to the man to makes it all happen.
Melvin Benn told ITV Calendar that Leeds Festival crowds know their music and bands appreciate that, creating a perfect and unique atmosphere for both to revel in:
The Leeds Festival is looming so that means rain right? Right! (but hopefully not too much).
Thursday will see a drop of rain in the form of light showers, but they won't amount to very much.
Thursday night is expected to be chilly, especially for camping.
Friday will see sunshine and mainly dry weather but a few showers are possible late afternoon/evening. Another chilly night will follow.
On Saturday expect a sunny morning but a few heavy, possibly thundery showers late afternoon/evening.
Saturday night will be really chilly due to clearing skies but that means a nice day on Sunday with long sunny spells.
Then it all goes pear shaped as rain edges in Sunday night to give a wet and windy day Monday.
Have a great time and stay up to date with the latest forecast here.
