With now less than two months to go before Live at Leeds embarks upon its ninth annual outing, last year’s winner of the coveted ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ award has just announced a further fifty acts to be added to its already very impressive bill.
Joining a whole host of international, national and local acts that includes Carl Barat & The Jackals, Dry The River, Dutch Uncles, Gaz Coombes, Thurston Moore, George The Poet, Stormzy, Slaves and Swim Deep plus Leeds’ legends Hookworms and Eagulls will be the Warwickshire singer songwriter Lucy Rose, another rising English star in Lauren Aquilina, the four-piece rhythm and blues band from Cavan in Ireland, The Strypes, singer and Game of Thrones actor, Raleigh Ritchie, the much heralded Hertfordshire singer, songwriter and musician Rhodes and the Nottingham sensation Saint Raymond.
In further news, the event organisers have revealed that there will be two huge welcome parties held this year, both on Friday 1st May on the eve of Live at Leeds’ main wristbanded event on the Saturday. The first of these is at Leeds University and features Yorkshire heroes Pulled Apart By Horses, Dinosaur Pile Up and Allusondrugs with Darlia, Sundara Karma and The Hearts all performing across to the west of the city at the superb Brudenell Social Club. These are both separate ticketed events.
Live at Leeds is set to be a huge day with over two hundred bands and twenty stages.
