LIVE: Leeds Festival @ Bramham Park, Leeds – Friday (26/08/2011)

Date: August 26th, 2011
Venue: Bramham Park, Leeds

Note: As only two members of the site were able to review the festival weekend, we were sadly unable to cover every band performing throughout the festival.

One of the longest running popular music festivals in the UK, the Reading/Leeds Festival weekend is well reknowned and has been hugely popular since its inception. This year, we made an appearance at the Leeds site of the event, and what a (muddy) weekend it was. Friday brought us such delights as the live favourite to many Muse along with many other fantastic acts to kickstart proceedings in style.

SINGLE: Enter Shikari – Destabilise

Release Date: October 26th, 2010
Label: Ambush Reality


St. Albans synth driving post-hardcore group Enter Shikari have come an awful long way since their “trancecore” and glowstick days of ‘Sorry, You’re Not A Winner’ and ‘Mothership’.
