Thousands of music fans today enjoyed a boozy party at the Leeds and Reading Festivals, ignoring the warnings of a heat wave during the holiday weekend.
The revelers basked in the baking sun while dancing, singing and cheering at their favorite acts at the start of a four-day party.
This year's line-up at the two locations – on Richfield Avenue in Reading and in Bramham Park, near Leeds – includes Post Malone, Foo Fighters, Billie Eilish, The 1975, Charli XCX and Chvrches.
Public Health England had previously called on the British to stay in the shade and drink plenty of water during the Bank Holiday weekend, but these warnings were ignored by the thousands of enthusiastic fans who started a four-day party and stayed cool by making sure the drinks continued to flow.
Spirits seemed high and there was no sign of the fear and panic that Reading held in its grip when terrified revelers were & # 39; crushed & # 39; in a & # 39; rush & # 39; while they stood in line for a silent disco.
Witnesses said that a & # 39; sea of people & # 39; was built up outside the disco and the audience got out of hand, with some festival goers & # 39; trampling & # 39 ;.
