This year’s Leeds Festival features a strong first day with the main bill headlined by Arcade Fire, who are enjoying success with their third album ‘The Suburbs’. Arcade Fire will need to pull out all the stops to avoid being overshadowed by the main return of The Libertines, who’s hotly anticipated comeback has already generated many column inches over the past few months. Also appearing on the Friday at Leeds will be the likes The Cribs, Modest Mouse, The Walkmen, Mystery Jets and Chapel Club on an impressive opening day. Blink-182 are set to headline the main stage on Saturday, while Guns n Roses will close the event on Sunday. Limited tickets remain available for Sunday.
