Disclosure, comprising of brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence, have shot to fame over the past few years and head to the festival on the back of a successful worldwide tour.

This is their maiden time headlining a major UK festival set and the pair are certainly the talk of the town amongst the revellers.

Festival goers were still slightly dazy from Friday’s shenanigans when Biffy Clyro rocked the main stage, but spirits were high at what is the 18th instalment of the musical extravaganza.

A group of teens who had travelled from Otley told the Yorkshire Evening Post there was only one act they were anticipating: “We can’t wait to see Disclosure. It’s the only reason we came.”

Foals, who are due on the main stage before Disclosure, are also generating plenty of excitement.

The Oxford-based band are poised to play old favourites during their setlist, which is scheduled for around 9pm.

The band combined with Disclosure during their set at the Reading Festival on Friday, and may have another suprise up their sleeves for Leeds fans this evening.


This year’s festival is expected to attract around 90,000 visitors and weather has been dry so far - however, the forecast is expected to take a turn for the worse during Saturday evening.

Despite clouds on the horizon in a physical sense, the various stages are set for a sunny outlook as the festival gets into full swing.
