Excitement is mounting ahead of the official start of the Leeds Festival tomorrow when once again big names from the music and comedy scene are set to display their talents at Bramham Park.

There are only hours to go before the first acts take to the stages with the picturesque park once again playing host to a huge weekend of music and entertainment across nine stages.

Saturday stars: Fall Out Boy.

Kings Of Leon, Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar and Panic! At The Disco are the main stage headliners this year, but with more than 300 acts on their way to Bramham Park there is plenty for everyone in an event set to be as huge as ever.

It all gets under way this evening for the festival early birds with Leeds record label Dance to the Radio overseeing a night of entertainment on the Festival Republic Stage with the hotly tipped Manchester-based trio The Blinders headlining and

Far Caspian, Tallsaint, Boy Azooga and Anteros also set to play.

The event proper starts tomorrow around noon with Dinosaur Pile-Up on the main stage, Twisted Wheel on the Radio 1 stage, Husky Loops on the Festival Republic Stage. Lady Bird on The Pit and Get Cape, Wear Cape. Fly in a surprise slot on the Radio 1 Dance Stage.

Main stage headliners: Kings Of Leon.

The festival is into its 20th year and once again will showcase stellar names from the rock, indie, hip-hop and dance worlds mixing with the up and comers and some of the country's finest comedy talents in the north of England's biggest festival.

Kings of Leon, Courteeners and The Vaccines head up a strong first day main stage line-up that also includes Billy Talent and J Hus.

Diplo and Slaves head up the BBC Radio One Stage in an eclectic bill that certainly rings the changes.

Talented singer-songwriter Tom Grennan headlines the Festival Republic Stage and Hannah Wants tops the bill on the Dance Stage while Hollywood Undead head up The Pit where there is heavily rumoured to be a special secret set in the afternoon.

Over at the Alternative Stage, laughs should be plentiful with Tom Allen, Dane Baptiste, Tez Ilyas and Chris Ramsey.

Fall Out Boy, Travis Scott, The Wombats, Post Malone, Wolf Alice, Nothing But Thieves, Annie Mac, Russell Kane and Joel Dommett are the big attractions on day two of the festival.

And it all wraps up with rap act Kendrick Lamar on Sunday along with co-headliners Panic! At The Disco, NERD, Dua Lipa, Sum 41 and Skindred on a really mixed main stage line-up.

Other highlights on the final day are likely to be provided by the returning Pendulum at the Radio One Stage, where Sigrid will also be appearing earlier in the day. Kate Nash and The Magic Gang play the Festival Republic Stage and TV comedian Harry Hill makes his first appearance at this event as the headliner on the Alternative Stage.
