Leeds Festival

Project Overview

Festival Republic asked us back for the second year running to create all the video content for Leeds Festival. Including highlights video, daily edits and band interviews.


We were delighted to be asked back for the second year in a row to create the official video content for Leeds Festival 2018. With the lineup splashing names such as Kendrick Lamar, Fall Out Boy, Kings of Leon, The Kooks and Dua Lipa this was bound to be an eclectic weekend of music and fun for everyone attending.

In addition for 2018 the project manager from Festival Republic stated that we would also need to produce a collection of daily edits to go out on IGTV and help drive their social media campaign over the festival weekend.

With a streamlined team of four we arrived at the festival on the Wednesday to walk the site walk go and through our check list for the weekend. This included liaising with the FR team to find out crucial information including pyro lists and the ‘must have’ artist shots.

Our team consisted of three camera operators, an onsite editor to create the content for IGTV and a project manager to oversee all aspects of production.



Our daily edits were put out on IGTV and were viewed by their 165K following. Each video was just under a minute long and charted the highlights of each day so fans could engage with the content over the festival weekend.


The highlights video subsequently followed and has received exceptional feedback for our shot selection and creation. The video was released in conjunction with 2019 tickets going on sale and will help to drive sales for next year’s festival.

Having previously worked with Big Blue Whale we were pleased to bring them on board as the official film crew for Leeds Festival 2018. Scott and the team were great at understanding our requests and realising our desired visual output of this year’s festival.
