Rumours suggest that Leeds Festival organisers are looking to add three stages to the 2013 bash.
“We’re changing the arena at Reading and Leeds quite significantly. I’ve got quite a strong buzz and feeling in myself in the changes that I’m making there. I’m still formulating the ideas.” Melvin Benn told BBC Newsbeat.
“There will quite a bit more dance music, quite a bit more other bits and pieces.”
According to NME the event will be expanding from 6 to 9 stages, but the capacity will remain the same.

Cheif Leeds Festival 2013 organiser, Melvin Benn has confirmed that 2 of the 3 headliners for next year’s festival have already been confirmed.
Benn made the following statement to NME this week:
“We’ve got two out of the three headliners already secured,”
“The third – we know exactly who we want. We haven’t made the approach yet, my feeling is they want to do it.”
