Live At Leeds: In The City is now just a few weeks away.
And it’s certainly one to get in your calendar (if you haven’t already).
Celebrating the best in indie music, the intimate day festival has a habit of predicting huge global stars in the making.
In previous years, Stormzy, The 1975, George Ezra, Ed Sheeran and Yungblud have all played on the stage here in early parts of their careers – and if you want to a chance of being able to say ‘I saw them in a tiny 500 person venue a few years ago’ – then now’s your chance to get down into Leeds and spot some new musical talent.
The full line-up has now been revealed with a whopping 35 new names added in the past week alone.
Joe Hubbard, Promoter, Live at Leeds: “We’re so proud to be bringing the best new music from around the country to Live at Leeds: In the City! I can’t wait to see what wonderful weirdness Jessica Winter has in store for us or have my face melted by the mighty Pigsx7 who I’m delighted to say are finally making their LAL debut. It’s also a privilege to be working with all of our stage partners this year, the lineups they’ve put together are just fantastic; having drawn from so many exciting new scenes you’re guaranteed to discover something amazing.”
