    Is anybody going to this?

    http://www.leedsfestival.com/home/

    Or should I say, is anybody here going? I would have loved to, and so would my kids, (age 9 and 11). They're huge Paramore fans. I very nearly bought tickets, but didn't, I was just a bit worried it may be a bit too "adult" - crushes, manky portaloos, queing to get in and out etc.

    If anyone here goes, I'd love to hear about it.

    Also, if anyone has any thoughts on the child-friendliness/unfriendliness of it, although I've probably left it a bit late now.

    Tempting, but would be a bit of a trial with our two year old and five year old I think.
    Last time we went to a festival in Leeds it was a Soapbox Derby at Roundhay Park - Jimmy Saville was there being annoying, great fun though, think it was about ten years ago.

    Thanks all, I think I've more or less made my mind up to let them take themselves when they're old enough. Who wants their mum with them at their first festival anyway!

    We're going to see Paramore at Sheffield arena in November, so that will have to do them for this year. :)

    Have been before, went last year, think just doing a day this year as i really want to do V festival so will be saving for a last min for that.

    I dunno, i don't think festivals are really for kids. Better to save that experience for later in teenage 16+ life IMO.

    Im going! truth be told Im a bit scared. I have gotten into small cosy festivals of 5,000 this last few years. This is going to be mental.. I hope they dont decide to burn the loos down on the last day like they do at Reading

    !!!! should be good though

    This is to stop people joining just to promote their own website/band/cat/whathaveyou and hopefully to encourage some participation. :rolleyes:

    Nice one... So this thread wasn't started to promote the Leeds Festival? I bet it was :icon_wink:

    It wasn't but good try :)

    That said, hopefully it might raise some discussions about the preliminary rumblings for who might be playing at this years? Looks like you lot will be, any ideas on anyone else? insider knowledge?
