Leeds Festival 'could be bigger than ever'
More Leeds Festival tickets could be sold this year than ever before, as the event has revealed it may increase the number of passes it releases.
This is according to local news provider the Wetherby News, which said a report created for Leeds City Council licensing committee by Festival Republic - the organiser of the annual concert - stated it may allow just under 80,000 people into Bramham Park this August.
"Consultation with the responsible authorities suggests that there would be no objection to the proposed capacity provided that the site facilities and supporting infrastructures were adequate to support this," the document was quoted by the publication as saying.
The number of people allowed into the venue could increase by 5,000 from last year's cap at 74,999, it was reported, although the organisers said this would only happen if there is sufficient demand for tickets.
It may become clear whether there are enough individuals vying for passes to the event on Monday (March 12th), as this is when the Leeds Festival 2012 line-up is announced and fans have their first opportunity to book a space at the concert.
It has been rumoured that the Foo Fighters, Kasabian and Kaiser Chiefs may be playing at the event, according to efestivals.co.uk.
