In an announcement this week, organisers of the Leeds Festival 2013 have confirmed that tickets for Leeds 2013 will go on sale on Friday 30th November. Tickets will be on sale via the official ticket agencies Ticketmaster and See Tickets.

As part of the same statement, Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn also said that he was planning to reveal a headliner this year, in what would be a move away from the usual Spring-time headliner announcements.

"I'm looking at probably announcing one of the headliners before Christmas, " said Melvin before confirming that the full bill would still be announced during the event's official launch in March 2013.

Fans should expect more stages at Leeds 2013 with Benn promising "a lot more diversity of music" and "quite a bit more dance music".

At the time of writing, Leeds 2013 ticket prices have not been confirmed.
