With just hours to the start of the 2013 Leeds Festival everything is in place for what promises to be another fantastic three days of top notch entertainment amid the picturesque Bramham Park setting.

The 15th Leeds Festival starts in earnest tomorrow with Bury Tomorrow getting things under way on the main stage around noon and Biffy Clyro set to be the big headliners on day one.

The event is bigger this year with extra stages and more than 300 acts set to entertain across the bank holiday.

With Friday’s day tickets having all sold out it will be a big crowd of some 70,000 set to greet the bands and comedy acts across the many stages.
