Earlier this week we revealed that Vodafone VIP subscribers could purchase exclusive pre-sale tickets for Leeds Festival from Wednesday, December 1st - if you are a Vodafone customer you can read it here.

Leeds 2011 organisers Festival Republic have today revealed that a public sale of these advance tickets will commence on Friday 3rd December at 9am.

You can buy Leeds 2011 tickets from the official ticket agencies See Tickets and Ticketmaster. Tickets will also be available through the Leeds partner site Viagogo.

These tickets will be held at 2010 prices (£180 per weekend pass, plus booking fees).

Festival Republic has stated that the reason for the pre-sale is so that "festival fans won't be hit by the VAT increase in the New Year". They go on to hint that ticket prices will increase by around £10 in the general sale next March.

The ticket sale will end on December 31st.
