Revelers brought the Leeds Festival to a fiery close Monday after many campers set their tents alight, putting other festival-goers at risk and creating a nightmare cleanup for organisers.

In a post-apocalyptic scene at Bramham Park after three days at Leeds event, most abandoned their tents as well as deck chairs, airbeds and litter. Others opted to set fire to their tents or simply smash them up.

All campers were expected to have left the Leeds site by 12pm, after which the huge clean up operation got into full swing.
