Rain’s no match for hardy Leeds Fest revellers!

For those seeking shelter in the tents earlier in the day, sisterly trio Haim had the NME/Radio 1 stage dancing, singing and flicking their hair along to their Fleetwood Mac-esque rock.

The winner of the Azealia Banks and Angel Haze Twitter row may not be conclusive, but it was Banks who won the battle of their sets, complete with psychedelic catsuit and writhing dancers.

The music – and rain– continued on Saturday with the Living End and Deftones among my top picks before what was undoubtedly the highlight of the festival – Green Day’s impressive two and a half hour set which included playing their pop punk classic album Dookie in full.

It was definitely one for the Leeds Fest history books.

Sunday saw a respite in the rain, but not in the mud, and a real mix, including Johnny Marr, Jake Bugg and Chase and Status before Eminem took to the stage.

Rumours of miming abounded, but that aside, Leeds again managed to produce one of those ‘I was there’ moments with Detroit’s finest, especially with the roaring encore of Lose Yourself.

See you next year, Bramham.
