Our spiritual home, Leeds, has always had a knack for pulling it out the bag. Its ramshackle party atmosphere always strikes a chord for the every-man, the normal bloke, the one who just wants to plug his nose with powder and scream from the rooftops for ‘just one more tuuuuune!’.
Lucky enough this wonderful city has an equally wonderful Metropolitan Festival to look after it in its hour of need. Live at Leeds has been running for a good few years now and it never seems to disappoint with it’s eclectic mix of established artists and up-and-coming bands all vying for the attention of the adoring crowd.
This year is no different. Think Eagulls, Hookworms, Carl Barat, Tobias Jesso Jr, Telegram and Meance Beach to name a handful. Add to that the plethora of bands who will be adorning your favourite magazines and site (ahem!) next year and the heart skips a beat.
Take a look at the newly added to the line-up below and in the midst of daydreams about destroying a beloved and old city full of blackened churches and deep dark basements of debauchery (Hyde Park, you know who you are!), try not to click this link for tickets.
