Live at Leeds is the North’s leading metropolitan festival and it’s easy to see why. With tickets at only £32.50, this special festival showcases the local up and coming talent of Leeds, whilst boasting a lineup of established artists who have already taken the UK music scene by storm. On Saturday 29th April, Live at Leeds will enter into it’s eleventh year and the talent keeps on getting better and better, with the lineup including some amazing female musicians!
This year sees the likes of English singer/songwriter Gabrielle Aplin grace our city, who shot to fame in 2012 with her cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s hit, ‘The Power of Love’. Gabrielle Aplin returned in November 2016 with the stunning new single ‘Miss You’, the title track from her forthcoming EP, and we can’t wait to see her perform it live.
The festival also welcomes Glaswegian noise pop duo Honeyblood consisting of Stina Marie Claire Tweeddale on guitar and vocals and Cat Myers on drums. This kick ass female duo has toured with the likes of the Foo Fighters and Wolf Alice in 2015. They have now returned with their second and awesomely named album Babes Never Die. Catch their set at Leeds Uni Stylus at 9pm.
Live at Leeds is well renowned for its ability to showcase new faces in some of Leeds’ best venues. Some of this talent includes the band The Golden Age of TV with front woman Bea Fletcher. Since the release of their new single ‘Between Each Brick’ they have captured the attention of BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 1. Another fresh artist on the UK music scene is Lamia, a female bedroom producer whose debut gig was at the BBC Introducing showcase and her previous works have been featured on Huw Stevens BBC Radio 1, BBC 1xtra, BBC Introducing, Amazing radio, and Indie Shuffle.
Live at Leeds 2017 will feature an eclectic mix of artists, ranging in different styles and genres, from different stages in their musical journeys. This is something that makes this award winning festival so fantastic and one that will continue to grow to showcase the awesomeness that is Leeds, it’s artists and its music scene.
