When is Popworld Festival?
Popworld Festival is taking place at Millennuim Square in Leeds on Saturday 5 August 2023.
What times does the event start?
Millennium Square advertises the event as starting from 6pm. It is expected that exact timings for each act will be released closer to the date.
Is there an afterparty?
Of course there is – it’s a Popworld event.
It really is a dream come true for all pop lovers out there, guests can expect an evening full of pop classics, dance tunes and singalong favourites.
Popworld Briggate Street and Cookridge Street both be hosting epic after parties for guests to dance on until the early hours. Festival attendees are simply asked to show tickets at the door before midnight on Saturday 5 August for free entry.
Anything I can’t bring?
Millennium Square says in its Summer Series FAQ that ‘Backpacks of any size or large bags will not be allowed into the arena. You are permitted to bring small bags or handbags no larger than 21cm x 29cm (approx. A4 size piece of paper)’, but mention that as all bags are subject to a search, it’s much easier not to bring a bag at all to speed up entry into the venue.
As for banned items, the list is pretty self explanatory: alcohol, glass, cans, chairs, portable furniture, large umbrellas, parasols, tents, gazebos, laser pens, air horns, fireworks, flares, smoke canisters, BBQs, paper lanterns or any lighting with a naked flame.
