"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" Party Across The Pond At Leeds & Reading Festival 2011

by Alex Gilman · August 26, 2011

Sunset Junction or no Sunset Junction, the Summer of Live Music rolls on. But with nothing happening in Silver Lake and Hurricane Irene bearing down on the East Coast, you might have to really get out of town to have some fun. So why not cash in your frequent flier miles and jet over to Leeds, about 200 miles north of London, where one half of the annual Leeds & Reading Festivals (two coordinated, simultaneous music festivals in separate cities) is currently raging. I'll warn you now, the weather sucks over there too, but as these photos from the Festival's official Flickr prove, the show goes on.
