Dan Flint, drummer of You Me at Six has revealed that Leeds Festival 2014 was one of the best live shows that the band have ever played.
Talking with Metro, Dan said, “It was ridiculous.”
“We had high hopes for the weekend anyway, but there was a part of us that thought maybe this is the practise and Reading will be the good one. But we went out there and the crowd was humongous and they just went insane.
“I think potentially it might have been one of the best shows we’ve ever played.”
The band will now go on to co-headline a tour with All Time Low in February 2015.
Leeds Festival took place over August bank holiday weekend and was closed by the Arctic Monkeys on Sunday.
