Bramham Park prepares for Leeds Festival transformation

With the festival season in full swing, the site for the north of England's biggest music event is getting ready for a remarkable transformation.

Bramham Park, just outside Leeds, has hosted Leeds Festival since 2003 and every year around 70,000 people flock to the site to see the best in world music.

Daniel Lynch went for a look around with the site's owner Nick Lane Fox:

Nick explained how event staff take over the grounds for around a month, two weeks either side of the festival, firstly preparing the ground and constructing six stages, then breaking them down and repairing the land.

Also there was festival organiser Melvin Benn, who discussed the difficulties of signing the best available bands that would create a balanced and varied programme to keep crowds coming back.

Topping the bill are Metallica, who he described as "the ultimate rock band".
