Live At Leeds will once again entertain you this May bank holiday weekend with another strong and inclusive line up showcasing some of the best new talent set for the uprise this summer.
The festival takes place across a variety of different venues in Leeds, covering over 20 stages and featuring over 150 current and upcoming bands that you need to know about. The festival has previously featured hugely successful artists such as Mumford and Sons, London Grammar, Ed Sheeran, Alt J and The Maccabees.
This year’s line up is equally as exciting, featuring some already well known names such as Ella Eyre, who will also be performing alongside Kelis at this year’s Great Escape Festival – a double appearance this festival season also being made by Chlöe Howl.
Other big names appearing include Dublin’s 2013 breakthrough band Kodaline who scored great success last year with singles ‘Love Like This’ and ‘High Hopes’. Clean Bandit who are already off to a very promising 2014 – currently sitting as UK’s No1 with their hit single ‘Rather Be’, will also be performing in Leeds this May.
Live At Leeds covers all genres and has progressive electronic duo Fuck Buttons lined up alongside indie legend and The Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr as well as something for the rock fans from Pulled Apart By Horses and I Like Trains. Also contributing to the indie vibe are Los Campesinos!, Wolf Alice and Yuck whilst alternative Detroit artist Lizzo handles the hip hop.
Tickets are available for just £25, however separate tickets are needed for Friday’s sets by Blood Red Shoes, Snarky Puppy and Melt Yourself Down as well as Sunday’s shows including Neurosis at Leeds Met and Kodaline’s set at the O2 Academy.
The festival takes place this year between 2-5 May. Get your tickets and view the massive selection of lined up artists here.
