In just a few months, two of the biggest festivals in the UK return to dominate the August bank holiday weekend, with three days of rock, indie, metal, hip-hop, grime, dance and pretty much everything that's great about music in 2017.
So far, Muse, Kasabian, Two Door Cinema Club, Fatboy Slim, Wiley, Major Lazer, Korn and Bastille are already announced, with tonnes more to be released as we near the summer. Ahead of another vintage year, we dug deep to pick out some of the best music from the acts already confirmed. Expect a riotous blend of sounds and genres that'll give you a taste of the magic in store for August. Check out the entire Leeds Festival line up here.

The enormous twin festivals held at Leeds' Bramham Park and Reading's Richfield Avenue, which can have their roots traced way back to the fifties, have made a habit of featuring just about every world-beating act along the way, and continue to do so this year.
