Parking is included within the price of all tickets at Leeds Festival.
Please travel to the A1, M1 or the A1(M) whether you are coming from the north, south, east or west and then follow the signs from the motorway. All routes to Leeds Festival start from the A1(M). Please note that the junction numbers on the A1(M) that we are using changed a few years ago and out of date printed maps, and old sat nav systems may not reflect the correct junction numbering on the ground so follow the signage on the routes rather than checking against a map.

DROP OFF / PICK UP ZONES
If you plan on being dropped off at Leeds Festival, or picked up when you are ready to leave, you will need to use our dedicated Drop Off zone, located off York Road (A64). There is no pick up/drop off facility near to Yellow Gate this year.
This area will have dedicated signage with zones A-I along with better lighting to improve public safety. Please do not pre-arrange to meet at zones as some will open/close dependent on volumes of people and traffic.
A64 ONE WAY SYSTEM ON SUNDAY/MONDAY
As per 2018, there will be a one-way system effective on the Sunday evening and Monday. The previous one way system on the A64 (York Road) on the Thursday has been removed.
On Sunday 25th and Monday 26th August, the A64 between the Fox and Grapes public house and the A1(M) / A64 roundabout will be closed to all traffic travelling eastbound (i.e. from Leeds to York).
The one way system will run from 21:00pm on Sunday 26th until Monday 27th August. It is anticipated that by 3pm, all traffic will resume as normal.
THORNER VILLAGE CLOSURE
Thorner Village will not be accessible to any non-residents of Thorner. The village will be closed at the following locations, and there will be no through access throughout the duration of Leeds Festival.
1. Northern part of Mangrill Lane
2. Carr Lane (very close to the A58)
3. Thorner / Skeltons Lane
4. Thorner / Milner Lane (next to the green triangle)

Please do not arrange to be dropped off or picked up from the closure points, as there is strictly no pedestrian access to the festival.
