It's clean up time at Bramham Park as this year's Leeds Festival comes to an end. Around 70,000 people were at the three-day event to see bands including the Kaiser Chiefs. Here are some of the highlights in pictures:
It's the final night of music for thousands of fans enjoying the Leeds Festival at Bramham Park.
Rockers Kasabian will close the main stage with their set tonight. Organisers say the line up was one of the best they've had, and they're already working out how they can top it next year
60 young people from across Europe are at Leeds Festival to make sure it is environmentally friendly. They will join the 'Everything is Possible' team in salvaging abandoned camping equipment left in a good or reusable condition. This equipment will then be passed on through a "community exchange".
– Clair Brown, co-founder of Everything is Possible
This is a fantastic opportunity to give to young people who couldn’t normally access this kind of event the chance to see their favourite bands while helping the local community and environment. A lot of organisations working with young people or the homeless, for example, could really make use of this equipment.
60 young people from across Europe are in Leeds to help keep this year’s Leeds Festival environmentally friendly. They are coming for a two week volunteering project organised by the local community organisation Everything is Possible, to help keep the Leeds Festival site environmentally friendly.
They will also help salvage abandoned camping equipment left in a good or reusable condition. This equipment will then be passed on to the local community and individuals in Leeds through a ‘’community exchange’’ sale.
