Slipknot have confirmed that they will not be making an appearance at Leeds Festival 2012.
“There are rumors flying around that we’re playing Leeds and Reading this year. They’re not true. Just setting the record straight,” [#] Tweeted lead singer Corey Taylor yesterday.
This news also suggests that the line-up poster we were send this week could also be a fake! boo! Take a look at that here.
The official line-up will be confirmed on 12th March 2012 at 7:15pm. Tickets will also go on sale at the same time.

We’ve been tipped off that The Cure will headline Leeds Festival 2012, and The Macabees will take one of the headline slots on the NME stage.
One of our readers E-mailed us to tell us that a friend had recently met The Macabees at a gig in Newcastle where they revealed the news to him.
We can by no means confirm that this will happen but based on the evidence it looks likely.
So far Kasabian, Greenday and The Foo Fighters have all be strongly linked with this years bash…we’ll have to wait and see how things pan out!
Tickets for Leeds Festival 2012 are expected to go on sale in March.

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.

Thanks for the continued support for the site.
