Leeds, United Kingdom
This year is Leeds' tenth and it's still the North of England’s only music festival. Over the years a host of bands have started their careers here, from Nirvana to Underworld, the biggest names in music have written the opening chapters of their stories at Leeds. Perhaps that’s why this year’s event arrives clutching its third NME Best Live Event award in a row.
