New ‘unofficial’ Leeds Festival Facebook Page

Posted on

We’re getting increasingly paranoid about the status of our current Leeds Festival Facebook page. Think it still has more than the official site, and because we can’t change the title of ‘leeds festival’ a lot of people are taking it for the official page!

To help keep a little transparency, we’ve decided to concentrate on building ‘Leeds Festival Unofficial’ now which creates no illusions around what it is.

To like our new page please click here:

Thanks for the continued support for the site.
