Yeah, I got back last night, I left when it was clear the strokes weren't going to sing disco 2000 or common people before running off stage shouting ''stuff you pulp'' I would have liked to have stayed for pulp but we wanted to avoid the rush and get home and have baths ect.
I saw the view, enter shikari, muse, the architects, the blackout, new found glory, some of bring me the horizon, the deftones, warpaint, panic! at the disco, the pigeon detectives, seasick steve, two door cinema club, madness and the strokes. We saw Tim Minchin, Russel Kane and a few others in the alternative stage. You?

Where were you camped?

You saw a lot more than me actually, I wasn't even planning on coming this year but my mate rang me on wednesday night saying he'd won 2 tickets in a Jack Daniels competition so I thought I'd have to go! From what I remember I saw Frank Turner, The View, Elbow, Muse, Sub Focus, Nero, Two Door Cinema Club, Madness and Jimmy Eat World. To be honest there wasn't that much I wanted to see this year so I just spent most of my time drinking/at the relentless stage or silent disco. I've been since 2009 but I kind of feel like Leeds fest isn't for me anymore, I'd really like to go to Glastonbury but that's not on until 2013 now, and I also really want to go to Creamfields as I'm more of a dance music kind of guy and there you have to be 18 to get in so there's not gonna be a load of 16 year olds running rampage after 3 tins of fosters.

Muse were absolutely amazing though, probably the best act I've seen out of the past 3 Leeds fests. Also, when Madness came on me and a mate managed to get onto the big screen a few times, he was on my shoulders and I was wearing a fonejacker mask and he had a cape with a bird hat on, it was a ridiculous sight.

And we camped in orange, we always do, it's good as it doesn't get too badly trashed but it is quite a walk to the arena. And it's got that massive hill in it which gets really muddy, and yesterday we thought it would be a good idea to go down it...in a wheelchair. Oh the joys of music festivals....!

I'm more into the rock music myself, but I have to agree with you I wasn't too sure if Leeds fest was for me, more because of the whole drunken teenagers doing my head in. I have very little patience for them. I did feel a little too old to be there a lot of the time (although I am only 23, I felt a lot older lol) but other then that had a great time.

Haha-nice, my friends were more likely to have seen you. I permanently had random tall people stood in front of me and at times dancing with their back on my face :/ not sure why but I seemed to attract them.

We had the hill to walk down too, we were in green though. Don't think I could have lasted in the wastelands on the way to the arena...

Sounds like you had a great time though :)

Yep it was on the whole a great festival, despite me only taking trainers which was a massive mistake. I do wonder what it would be like to have so many tall people blocking your view, thankfully I'm tall enough not to have any problems. I was glad last night as well as we left around 11 just before the mad rush of traffic so I was home pretty quickly, I only live about 5 miles away from the site!

I LOVE this band! and I have a friend who loves them too. He bought a muse cover for his iPhone 4, a guitar pick necklace (which says Muse on it) and a few other stuff. I meant to go to their concert in Stockholm last summer, but then they cancelled last minute :sob: :( I hope I'll get to see them someday. For they are truly awesome <3 :3m_sie:
