The quick decision process is at odds with events of a couple of annums back where all sorts of shit hit the fan following the portaloo burning of 2002 and general scally-tastic rioting. However, the subsequent trouble-free fun of last year’s event held at Bramham Park (as it has been for the last couple of events) means that the Festival will continue as planned in the same location.
Mean Fiddler honcho, Melvin Benn said of today’s decision:
“This is great news... we can now look forward to another three days of great music and world famous bands in 2005.”
The Beer-Sponsored Weekend, Reading and Leeds Festivals take place from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th August.
