Transgressive records will be returning to Reading & Leeds festival this year to steer the Alternative stage into the night with a host of performances and DJ sets. Live performances on the Transgressive stage will come from Fat White Family, Honne and Loyle Carner, while Metronomy, Hinds, Pulled Apart By Horses and Peace will all be playing DJ sets. Reading & Leeds festival runs from 25th-28th August.
Love or loath them, Fat White Family are arguably one of the most dynamic live acts to come out of the UK in recent years. Never too far from a little bit of controversy, the band can crank up the heat in any venue with their brash on stage bravado, sleazy riffs and undeniable groove - a must see at Leeds on the Sunday night.
Fresh off the back of new album release Summer 08, Metronomy will be offering up a selection of gentler sounds in the spectrum to the Fat Whites when they take on DJ duties. Band leader Joe Mount will be the man behind the decks as he blends essential Metronomy tracks with a mix of dancefloor hits from across the ages.
Leeds heroes Pulled Apart By Horses, Spanish Indie dreamers HINDS and Peace will also be dropping their record knowledge in the Transgressive stage over the course of the weekend. For good measure, Peep Show’s very own Super Hands will be stepping up to the plate with a debut appearance at Leeds on the Saturday Night.
Tickets for Leeds Festival are currently on sale.
