ConsExpensive, smelly, not for the faint hearted

It 's only after spending a weekend living in complete filth that I come to appreciate my home comforts. After returning home from this year's Leeds Festival I had never found my own bathtub more welcoming. However, once scrubbed and sweet smelling I did have an urge to return to the...

It took a while to decide upon a topic worthy of becoming subject of my first review but with a sudden flash of inspiration it became obvious that nothing would do the job as well as the Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival. For those that don't already know Leeds is a three day alternative music...

So. I am currently recovering from my day yesterday rocking it out at Leeds Festival. Unfortunately I could only do a day ticket and not the whole weekend but it has been at least 10 years since my last festival so I thoroughly enjoyed. From how I am feeling today I also think the whole weekend...

Being a festival virgin like myself, I found it hard to resist the payment of £80 to see the musical acts at this years Leeds 2000. So today I parted with my hard earned cash and marvelled at the thought of seeing some of my favourite bands in the world in a non-stop, 3 day mosh.DEFTONES, RAGE...

Leeds Festival is one of the offshoots of the fairly famous Reading Festival (the other being Glasgow Green.) Having looked at the bill beforehand, I thought I would enjoy myself. But I didn’t imagine just how good it would be. I started off on Saturday by seeing Cay and Daphne & Celeste (oh yes...

OK, last year (2000) was the second year that Leeds had been held, and the second year I had attended and they couldn't have been more different. 1999 lulled me into a false sense of security by being hot (VERY HOT) most of the time and very rarely raining.
