I wrote a piece on Red Hot Chili Peppers at Leeds, as they were the band I primarily bought my ticket for.
I wanted to see Skindred, but we missed most of their set due to getting there late, and Parkway Drive were on my list but pulled out for family reasons.
This didn't leave me with a great deal of variety in my day, but we hung around the main stage and decided to watch Slaves. I'd heard of them before, and vaguely knew a track or two, but I really didn't know a great deal about them at all.
Happy to say - those chaps absolutely blew me away!
I used to attend Leeds Festival every year until I switched to just Download with the line-ups becoming less and less to my liking at Branham Park. But, as a die hard Red Hot Chili Peppers fan, I needed no persuasion to purchase a day ticket solely to see my favourite band live again.
