Live at Leeds is now less than a month away and as the city anticipates its arrival we take a look at some new and familiar faces set to grace this years stages.
Forward Russia need no introduction, headlining the town hall stage on May 3rd. The quartets are familiar faces to the Leeds. The band separated some years ago but have recently joined together again for a series of sparse shows. We are very much looking forward to their return!
Scrolling through this years line up their seems to be to many acts to talk about with the likes of Blood Red Shoes, Pulled Apart By Horses, Drenge, Fuck Buttons, Chloe Howl, Tennis, Wolf Alice and Yuck and these are just some of the headliners.
Delving further to discover Black Moth, Crocodiles, Dum Dum Girls, Jaws and The Wytches will also play across the city over 18 venues.
Not to mention the array of local talent Live At Leeds will host this year I Like Trains, Sam Airey, The Sunshine Underground, Menace Beach, Eaves, Blue Laurel, and Imp to name a few.
This is one jam-packed line up you’d be stupid to miss. You are guaranteed to stumble upon at least one band (if not a whole lot more) that will be ‘that band’ you will tell your friends about.
Live At Leeds takes place 2-5 May, with tickets still available!
