New ‘unofficial’ Leeds Festival Facebook Page

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.

A new Tweet we’ve just spotted on the official Reading and Leeds Festival profile suggests that there will be a line-up announcement for Leeds Festival 2012 very soon.

Loads of new Leeds Festival 2012 Rumours

We’ve added loads of new rumours to our Leeds Festival rumours page this week.

Some include Florence & The Machine, Klaxons, Placebo and the Lost Prophets, all for different reasons but mainly because they are touring or will have albums out.

Please note that we’ve tried to only include names if there is some kind of valid evidence to suggest that they could play. We don’t ever make stuff up for the hell of it! (we report rumours not invent them!)

Foo Fighters Now Even More Likely for Leeds Festival 2012

The rumours of Foo Fighters performing at Leeds Festival 2012 got even stronger today after eFestivals unofficially confirmed that they will be headlining the event in August 2012.

The festival website has proven to be an unrivaled source of unofficial Leeds Festival news in years gone by so this looks like it could be pretty concrete now!

One of the administrators on the eFestivals forum said: “Yup, Foo Fighters nailed on,” shortly after reveling he had an announcement to make about the line-up. You can see the rest of the thread here.

More rumours coming soon, we’ll keep you updated as they come in. You can also check out our rumours page for more info in the meantime.

Problems with Hosting!

Apologies if you have been trying to access in the past few days only to be greeted with a WordPress install or a ‘forbidden’ page. We are having issues with our host at the moment and as we try and resolve them it looks like they are going to unexpectedly pull the site down at random times with no warnings…!

If you want to know the tech stuff, basically they are blocking access to our database because another site hosted on the same server is importing thousands of events every night! As our site relies on a database to run, when access is blocked the sky falls in.

Hope its not caused to much of a problem and thanks for the continued support!
