Leeds’ 2 day multi venue festival, Live at Leeds, will be once again taking over many of the cities venues this year as it celebrates its 10th birthday. The festival brings an assortment of established artists and bands along with a range of up and coming talent to play in the city over the 2-day period.
The first names for this year’s festival were revealed back in November and featured the likes of Liverpool indie four piece Circa Waves and hard hitting rock outfit Band Of Skulls. Set to join the likes of Rat Boy and We Are Scientists will be indie rock band Mystery Jets. The London based band will be releasing their first album since 2012 this year and will be on hand to treat the Live At Leeds audience to their new material as well as fan favourites such as the 2008 single Two Doors Down. UK based rapper and producer Ghostpoet is also set to appear over the course of the weekend of the 30th of April. The 2-time Mercury Prize nominated artist conjures a blend of electronic influenced production and intelligent lyrics making him one of the most forward thinking rap artists to come out of the UK scene. Known for a high energy live performances, Ghostpoet will not be one to miss over the course of the weekend.
