Last year marked a decade of Live At Leeds, a groundbreaking event which paved the way for a number of similar urban festivals which continue to go from strength to strength. As a result of last year's milestone, the organisers clearly decided that the only way was up, with this year's bill managing to be bigger and better than ever before.
This year marks the eleventh installment of Live at Leeds. Taking place across Leeds city centre, including over twenty venues, on from Friday 28th April to Sunday 30th April, we're wading in to offer our highlights of the 100+ artist line-up. Tickets are available now, with Saturday's main event just £32.50, for a solid day of live music.
This year's Live at Leeds line-up is already looking like the strongest in the event's history. With an opening party from Future Islands, a closing event from Maximo Park and a Saturday bill featuring Rag 'n' Bone Man, Slaves, The Big Moon, White Lies and Black Honey, the organisers have now unleashed an extensive list of final names.
Last week, Live at Leeds bolstered their line-up with a further seventy names for the main event (Saturday 29th April) and now they've announced a tantilising closing party for the following day. Newcastle's Maximo Park will headline the festivities, which will take place at Leeds' O2 Academy on Sunday 30th April.
Ahead of the eleventh installment of Live at Leeds, taking place across the city on Saturday 29th April, more huge names have been added to the line-up. In addition to the likes of Slaves, White Lies and Black Honey, the festival has now added seventy other artists, including Rag 'n' Bone Man, Nothing But Thieves and DMA's.
Last year marked a decade of Live At Leeds, no mean feat for an event which truly led the way for 'urban festivals' back in 2006. The event itself was one of the best yet, so it's no surprise that its back again this year and they've unveiled a host of big names for their first announcement, including Slaves, White Lies and Wild Beasts.
