Festival goers have been reporting alarming conditions at Reading and Leeds music festivals. Writing on the official Leeds Festival page, several ticket holders complained that the facilities were not coping with the weather.
The event organisers make enough money to provide some decent sanitation as well. The toilet situation is barbaric, heck just a roof would help. Just saying.
Some woodchip to soak up the mud would have been a huge help...conditions were pretty treacherous especially in the dark and then the car got stuck in the mud too so bit of a problem getting out, saying that the stewards were a fantastic help. All made worth by an incredible set by Green Day. Have fun if you're going today.
