Bottle from Guns N’ Roses 2010 Gig Displayed at Leeds Museum
According to the BBC, the Leeds City Museum is displaying memorabilia from the past years festivals. According to the article
A tequila bottle belonging to Guns N’ Roses and a set-list from the Pigeon Detectives are just some of the mementos in a new archive celebrating Leeds Festival.
Band paraphernalia such as guitar strings and drumsticks join the more bizarre donations of dentures and a bear-shaped hat.
Acts and revellers have passed on the objects to Leeds City Museum.
The archive hopes to document the event for future generations.
Community curator Marek Romaniszyn said: “I wasn’t expecting to get a bong mask but it certainly tells a story.”
First staged in 1999, Leeds is the sister festival to Reading, the world’s oldest popular music festival, and the museum wanted to reflect the event’s place in popular culture.
Collectors got in touch with artists who have played at Bramham Park and festival-goers to pick something meaningful to them.
Mr Romaniszyn explained: “I asked the artists to send me something used, something which reflected their time there.
“Heart-ships sent me a few items, one of which was a moulded set of dentures – the story being this was an impression of the singer’s teeth which they had on stage when they played at Leeds.”
