Live At Leeds: In The Park is the ultimate day fest for anyone looking to celebrate summer with indie favourites aplenty.
The bi-annual festival hosted either ‘In The City’ in the autumn, or ‘In The Park’ in the summer. The summer portion is the second of its kind to go ahead this year, and it promises an action-packed day of alternative indie anthems from a range of established and up-and-coming artists alike.
Here’s everything from the lineup to tickets and where to park your car, so you have everything you need to prepare for Live At Leeds: In The Park 2023.
Returning for 2023, Live At Leeds: In The Park, will see indie favourites Two Door Cinema Cub bringing Temple Newsam to life on Saturday 27 May 2023.
The Northern Irish musicians will be sure to bring the best of their latest album and true to the name, Keep On Smiling, and fuse their set with classics from their earlier days like Undercover Martyn, What You Know and Bad Decisions.
Adding to the plethora of talent already heading up Temple Newsam this summer, DMA’s and The Hives have been added to the line-up, set to bring the house (well, field) down with heavy guitar riffs and a host of non-stop hits that’ll have the crowd on their feet all night long.
The Hives’ frontman Pelle Almqvist says that the band are ‘very proud’ to be heading over to Leeds in May: “Some festival names just have a ring to them don’t they? Live At Leeds. It sounds like some upper echelon rock shit and if this year’s edition wasn’t before, now it is. The Hives are very proud and happy to join this upper echelon.
Joining the headline act are plenty of bands from near and far that need no introduction. The Lathums, Wigan’s finest, will be performing alongside Tom Walker, Everything Everything, The Big Moon, Black Honey and more besides.
