 24 August, 2012: Reading and Leeds festival has begun. Tents have been pitched and bands have begun performing - it's going to be a massive weekend.

Taking to the main stage this afternoon were The Gaslight Anthem, who performed tracks from their current album Handwritten (including smash hit '45') alongside tracks from their back catalogue. The band were performing on the Leeds Festival main stage ahead of Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Kaiser Chiefs and Bullet For My Valentine.

All Time Low were also on early doors with guitarist Jack Barakat getting up close and personal with the Leeds crowd.

Justice are top of the bill on the NME / Radio One stage, who share the line-up with Two Door Cinema Club, The Horrors, SBTRKT, Mark Lanegan Band, The Joy Formidable, Tribes, Django Django, Howler and Of Monsters And Men.
