After a sell-out festival in 2017, Live At Leeds is back this year with more big names and more future megastars descending upon the city on Saturday 5th May. With past line ups including the likes of Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, The 1975, and James Blake, this is definitely an event you don’t want to miss!
The line-up this year includes hot new bands on the verge of becoming huge, such as Peace, The Magic Gang and Pale Waves, as well as established acts such as British Sea Power, Pulled Apart by Horses and Ash. Most recently, The Vaccines, IDLES, Superorganism and Rae Morris have also been added. Although the names at the top of the bill are mainly your typical cis white men, there are loads of badass women represented in the line-up too, something that may seem like an obvious thing to do but something so many festivals don’t bother with.
Not only is the line-up fab, the festival takes part over one day with all but a couple of the venues in the city centre. The Brudenell Social Club and Hyde Park Book Club may be a bit more of a trek but are definitely worth checking out. It’s dead easy to get around Leeds so even if you don’t fancy walking the buses are regular and it’s only around £4 for unlimited day travel so it won’t break the bank: the joys of going to an inner-city music festival!
The £39.60 Live At Leeds ticket gets you entry into all the gig venues all day, that’s 19 venues across the city, all with different vibes and different things to offer. All the fun of being at a festival, but with actual toilets, a choice of cold drinks and the ability to nip to your favourite restaurant, food truck or shop for food rather than being forced to pay £5 for soggy chips. Plus, even if it rains you won’t have to worry too much because it’s inside and you get to fall into an actual bed at the end of the night.
Live At Leeds could well sell out again so get your tickets soon, the early bird and VIP are already gone! Get your tickets here.
