Enter Shikari Name Best Band of Leeds Festival 2012 by NME Readers

NME readers have voted Enter Shikari as their number one band of this year’s Leeds and Reading Festival.

The band took to the main stage at Leeds on Sunday 26th August 2012 and beat off competition from the likes of Foo Fighters (who many readers on here have said put on an awesome set!) The Cure, Kasabian and more to claim the title of ‘best act’.

The top ten were as follows:

1. Enter Shikari, Main Stage
2. Foo Fighters, Main Stage
3. Kasabian, Main Stage
4. The Cure, Main Stage
5. The Black Keys, Main Stage
6. Green Day, NME/Radio 1 Stage
7. Kaiser Chiefs, Main Stage
8. Maccabees, NME/Radio 1 Stage
9. Paramore, Main Stage
10. The Hives, NME/Radio 1 Stage

2 out of 3 Headliners Already Confirmed for Leeds Festival 2013

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.”

Although Benn refused to name any of the confirmed acts he has already ruled out the Stone Roses as a possibility, explaining: “My feeling is probably that they are not on our list.”

…Introducing ‘The Ticket Farm’

Myself and a good friend and developer have been using some of our time recently to create a ticket comparison website.

After some additional struggles we now have the website live and running.

Its called The Ticket Farm and, despite being in its very early stages, still proves to be a useful tool for finding the cheapest gig and concert tickets by comparing a number of mainstream distributes.

We hope you can use our website to save some of your hard-earned money.

Leeds Festival Confirm Burger and Beer offer Rumours

Official organisers at Leeds Festival 2012 have confirmed that ticket holders will be entitled to a FREE breakfast burger and beer or soft drink each day.

Vouchers for the refreshments will go out with the tickets when they are posted to buyers.

Melvin Benn said, “Beer and Burger (B&B) has become Beer and Breakfast Bap (B&BB).
