Leeds Festival announces new ‘40,000 capacity open air venue’ as they lose two main stage approach

Featuring a stage design that the festival have “never done before”.

Introducing ‘The Chevron’, a new open air venue arriving for Leeds Festival 2024.

If we weren’t already buzzing with excitement for Leeds Festival this year, then we most definitely are now.

The festival have just announced that this year will welcome a brand-new, 40,000 capacity open air venue ready to wow music fans flocking to Bramham Park this August.

The Chevron will feature immersive lighting and a stage design that the festival have “never done before”.

Announcing the news, Leeds Festival said “Featuring the biggest acts, bespoke creative visuals, cutting-edge tech and a world-class sound system, The Chevron is a must-visit festival experience you can’t have anywhere else…”

It will be positioned in the main arena of the festivals, signalling the return of a single main stage which fans will welcome as the two stage approach caused backlash when put into place previously.

The Chevron stage boasts headliners like The Prodigy, Sonny Fodera and Skrillex as well as Nia Archives, Barry Can’t Swim, Denzel Curry, Bou, Kenya Grace and Digga D.

This year’s festival will also see the triumphant return of the ‘world’s biggest silent disco’.

Last year this was headlined by SIGMA in a set broadcast across both Reading and Leeds.

Festival Republic Managing Director Melvin Benn: “The Chevron is more than just a physical stage; it’s a testament to Reading & Leeds’ continued commitment to innovation and industry leadership. We demonstrated this previously, with the introduction and success of dual main stages in 2021.

“This year I saw the opportunity to do something new and truly special, reflecting the audience’s evolving tastes and cutting edge production the show is known for. This elevates our electronic and hip-hop music offerings, while still delivering six main-stage headliners and a strong representation across other genres. I can’t wait for everyone to experience The Chevron this summer.”

It’s set to be an incredible festival, with Fred Again, Blink-182 and Lana Del Rey headlining over the August bank holiday weekend.
