Leeds and Reading Festivals have announced details of their Alternative Stage - providing a break from the music with a great mix of comedy, cabaret, film and performance art.
Headlining the stage this year are some of the biggest names in comedy – Emo Philips, Jason Byrne, Stephen K Amos, Kevin Bridges, Russell Kane and Rufus Hound. They are joined by a mix of the best established and new names on the block.
Between the laughs there will also be some amazing artists appearing including human beatbox supremo Beardyman, the lyrical talents of rappers Rinse, Wariko and Afrikanboy and indie superstar Eddie Argos.
Later in the day, the Alternative Stage shows films for those wanting to relax before the club action starts.
