A video has emerged of the debris left behind after the music event last weekend.
Reading & Leeds Festival may have closed its doors last Sunday, but the hard work was by no means over.
Footage emerged this week which saw the clean-up effort after the rubbish left behind at Leeds Festival, and it makes for some eye-watering viewing.
Watch the short clip above, which was shared on Facebook by Sophie Cottis-Allan.
The video was captioned: "The aftermath of Leeds festival. The waste is just ridiculous... :( Luckily hundreds of volunteers from amazing charities were invited on site to salvage something from this throwaway culture. Unfortunately, more than 90% of the tents we came across were trashed/slashed/burnt."
It's not the first time we've witnessed scenes after a festival, with a clean-up worker named Flashing Frog sharing the crazy amount of debris left after Glastonbury 2016.
See a short clip of the footage below:
