Now in it’s third year, Live At Leeds’ summer portion is returning for 2024.
And now even more names have been added for the festival.
T-Shirt Weather is the ultimate festival banger, and Circa Waves know it. The four-piece band will be bringing their set to Live At Leeds: In The Park. Formed in 2015, Sea Girls have also remained a firm part of the UK festival circuit, and will be playing at Temple Newsam over the May Bank Holiday.
Meanwhile, Grammy-winning Corinne Bailey Rae will unveil her latest musical endeavour, ‘Black Rainbows’ at the festival too. The new concept draws inspiration from objects and artworks curated by Theaster Gates at the Stony Island Arts Bank in Chicago, we’re told that this musical project promises a distinctive twist.
Now that’s a homecoming appearance with a difference.
Additional new names for the festival include Ola Gartland, Hotwax, Lucia & The Best Boys, The Clause and Tom A Smith, who join the already jam-packed line-up kicking off festival season for 2024.
Speaking about Live At Leeds: In The Park, Circa Waves said: “Glad to be back in Leeds. They never let us down! The people, this festival, it’s gonna go off.”
Longtime Brighton favourites The Kooks were announced at the back end of 2023 as the first headliners for the all-day fest, whilst Declan McKenna will return to Leeds this summer, this time swapping a secret set at Leeds Fest for Temple Newsam Farm.
Wakefield’s own The Cribs also will be making an appearance at Live At Leeds: In The Park, returning eight years after headlining the ‘In The City’ portion of the festival back in 2015 – and there’s no doubt that the same crowdpleasers like Be Safe and Man’s Needs will get the crowd on their feet with just as much enthusiasm today.
Hot off the back of a stellar performance at The Wardrobe as part of Live At Leeds: In The City 2023, Antony Szmierek will be taking to the big stage, alongside The Mysterines, Vistas, The Slow Readers Club, Future Islands and more.
