Billie Eilish. Post Malone.

Posted:Sunday | 8:25 PM

That’s it, that’s the post.

Can you score 100% on this Billie Eilish quiz?

Posted:Sunday | 6:05 PM

Come out and play this quiz…

Now that you’ve seen Billie play Leeds, it’s time to test your knowledge. We assume you really don’t have anything better to do…

We don’t care if you’ve got a ‘bellyache’, there’s really no excuse not to take this. We’ll stop with the puns, but let us know what you get over on @OfficialRandL – there aren’t any prizes, just the satisfaction of knowing you’re not a failure.

What is Twenty One Pilots’ best song? You had your say

Posted:Sunday | 3:10 PM

It’s time to get Stressed Out over this important decision.

Last week you had your say and crowned Foo Fighters’ ‘The Colour and the Shape’ as their best album. Period. Now you’ve got another big task on your hands, what the hell is Twenty One Pilots best song?

You’ve been waiting with bated breath and we can finally tell you that logically, using the power of democratic voting – ‘Car Radio’ is Twenty One Pilots best song, no questions asked.

They’ve got a hefty back catalogue of bangers and emotional bops, so this should be a tricky one. What else are you going to be doing with yourself between now and the festival? Nothing. So get on with it.

All you need to do is up-vote or down-vote their best song below, we’ll announce the winner right here on Tuesday, 16th April – then we can finally stop this argument.

So you like Bastille, and you like Reading and Leeds? Well, you’re halfway there with this quiz then.

Bastille are no strangers to Leeds, Fest they’ve worked their way up from the smaller stages right up to the iconic Main Stage. If you’re a regular, you’ve probably seen them evolve along the way, but how much attention were you really paying to them?

It’s time to see if you’ve got a photographic memory, or you’re just a dirty Googling cheat… Let us know what you get on @OfficialRandL if you’re not too embarrassed.
