AdvantagesThe Music

DisadvantagesThe mud and the smell

"...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 unforgettable filth that was the "Carling Weekend 2006".

A rocking good time

AdvantagesBrilliant music, Great atmosphere. One of this countries premier music events

DisadvantagesThe toilets, the queues and maybe the mud!

"...well as the Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival. For those that don't already know Leeds is a three day alternative music festival that takes place in Bramham Park (Which rather irritatingly is quite a distance from Leeds). It's the much younger sibling of the rather more well known Reading Festival which has been about in some form or another since 1961 (compared to Leeds' 1999). The two festivals take place each year over the August bank holiday ..." Read review

this is the way to live

Advantagesmany good bands

Disadvantagestoilets, some of the organisation,

"...back from the Carling Festival Leeds yesterday. It was pretty good. Bye. WARNING: this opinion contains colourful language and reference to illegal behaviour This is an opinion about the Carling Weekend Leeds 2003…there is no pretence to know anything about previous festivals except there was a riot last year. Right anyway I booked my tickets a couple of months ago and its fair to say I’ve been pretty excited by the prospect ..." Read review
