Leeds Festival was first held in 1999, following the success of Reading Festival. The two festivals feature the same acts in the same weekend, with the occasional exception. The lineup always includes the most popular rock, pop, metal and hip hop artists. In recent years, headline shows have been given by Eminem, Foo Fighters, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Muse, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, and many others. Across its eight stages, Leeds Festival also features upcoming alternative, rock and punk acts, as well as a dance music tent.
