Leeds Festival 2017 saw the return of greatest acclaimed live band on earth, Muse, whose set included many hits from their expansive array of albums including, My time is running out, Psycho, Plug in baby, Hysteria and Stockholm Syndrome. There set was full of energy, drive, guitar riffs, a memorising light show and confetti canons to close. The English rockers from Devon gave all in their set and firmly lived up to their reputation.
Kasabian headlined Saturday night, the indie rockers treat the crowd to new tracks from their latest album such as, Your in love with a psycho. Other hits included Shoot the runner, Stevie and Re-wired. Serge Pizzorno donned a bright red North Face rain jacket could be seen clearly even from the back of the massive crowd. The band stirred up the old age argument who is better Reading or Leeds Festival? The whose better debate?! as Tom Meighan screamed to the crowd "You're burying Reading already. The fuckin' North eh?"
Eminem whose headline Sunday evening set span a back log of his greatest hits, he even roused the crowd into a F**k Trump chant, which saw 90,000 people chant along with rapturous applause. The politically motivated set was well received by the mass crowd of festival goers. His 32 track set included, Wont Back Down, White America, Soldier, Airplanes part 11, Love the Way you lie, Not afraid climaxing the set with and Encore to Lose Yourself. Many festival fans seemed surprised at his vast set, vocal range, overall production and deliverance overshadowing previous expectations of the set. We at Yorkshire Everyday think he may have earned himself some new fans due to his excellent set closing Leeds 2017.
Yorkshire Everyday's other favourite acts included Korn, Jimmy Eat World, Migos, Architects, Bastille, Two Door Cinema Club and Liam Gallagher graced the main stage with rememberable sets as Leeds Festival fans were treated to good weather over the bank holiday weekend.
Many other acts played over the four day weekend festival. And after the main arena closed each day, thousands attended the late night Relentless and Piccadilly stages which saw the likes of Hannah Wants, Jaguar Skulls and Feed Me.
Some of our highlights on the NME stage included Fickle Friends, You Me at Six, Declan Mckenna and Sherlocks.
Our highlights from the rock and alternative stage include Arcane Roots, Breaking Benjamin, Wstr and Boston Manor.
Radio 1s Dance stagesaw the likes of Metrik, Jacob Plant, Shy Fx, Fatboy Slim and many others over the course of the weekend as revellers danced away to house, Dnb and dance.
As always we will see you again next year in 2018.
