Leeds Festival 2013 Flooding Fails To Bring The Rapturous Crowd Down
This year's Leeds Festival held at Bramham Park may have had a super amount of rain, but that didn't stop the headliners from entertaining.
Leeds Festival 2013 may not have brought with it the best weather of the year, with torrential downpours and heavy flooding putting a damper (pardon the pun) on everyone's camping weekend, but the line-up was enough to put a smile on everyone's mud spattered face!
Green Day Headline Leeds Festival 2013
Biffy Clyro drew in a rapturous audience on the Friday and Green Day had a smaller but dedicated audience on Saturday, but that was nothing compared to Eminem's fantastic closing performance which drew the biggest audience of the whole weekend. Other bands had a few surprises up their sleeves, with Fall Out Boy managing to get Foxes up on stage to perform their collaborative track 'Just One Yesterday' (Pete Wentz' favourite song from their new album) and The Lumineers taking crowd participation to a new level by playing in the middle of their audience.
The NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage was a popular tent all three days with Bastille rendering it absolutely packed on Saturday and Jake Bugg and Haim becoming two of the Stage's highlights on Sunday and Friday respectively.
The start of the mud at Leeds Festival 2013
The flooding on Thursday night (August 22nd 2013) caused the Relentless Stage to be closed as well as the Silent Disco, and many bands lost out on the few viewers they had already secured due to people preferring not to make the effort in such weather, but all in all spirits were generally high and we are most certainly looking forward to next year.
