12 great pictures from day one of the Leeds Festival

The Leeds Festival swung into action once again at a sun drenched Bramham Park and here's a selection of Ian Harber's pictures that highlight an exciting first day.

Revellers enjoyed the glorious weather in up to 25 degree temperatures and lapped up a varied line-up of big names and rising stars, headed up by rock gods Foo Fighters. Day two begins today around noon with The 1975, Dave and Bowling For Soup headlining this evening.
