Leeds Festival 2019 is almost upon us - here is everything you need to know about drop off points, how to get there, parking and shuttle buses.

The Bramham Park festival takes place from Thursday, August 22 to Sunday, August 25.

Drop off points

The new 'Drop Off Zone' is located off of York Road (A64).

There is no pick-up/drop-off facility near to the yellow gate this year.

The new zone will be split into zones A-I.

Organisers warned people not to pre-arrange meeting points as zones will open and close depending on the volumes of people and traffic.

Parking

Parking is included in the price of tickets at Leeds Festival.

Staff at the festival will direct you to the right place to park.

How to get there:

By car

All routes to Leeds Festival start from the A1 motorway.

If you are travelling from the south on the A1 the route will be signposted from Junction 41 northbound.

Travellers driving from the south on the M1 it will be signposted from Junction 42 northbound.

On the M62 it will be signposted from Junction 33 westbound if you are driving from the east, or from Junction 29 eastbound from the west.
