And in record time...

Weekend tickets for the CARLING WEEKEND: LEEDS FESTIVAL have sold out in record time.

Organisers Mean Fiddler have announced today (July 26) that weekend tickets for the northern leg of this year’s festival have totally sold out.

MD Melvin Benn said: “This is brilliant. Last year was the best we had ever had and managed to sell out on the weekend of the festival. To sell out of weekend tickets with more than a month to go really demonstrates that Leeds and its new home has arrived and that the bill is as awesome as I thought it was.”

This year’s festival takes place for the second time at Bramham Park (August 27-29), and will see performances from White Stripes, The Darkness and Green Day.

A small number of day tickets are still available.
