Having been at the heart of the Leeds clubbing scene for the best part of 8 years, Vagabondz is continuing its series of electronic music events with a number of nights at the relatively new but firmly established bar and music venue, The Belgrave Music Hall. Bringing the best in bass music to all corners of the city, Vagabondz has prided itself as being the go to brand for garage, drum & bass, hip-hop, reggae, jungle, dubstep and more.
The Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen is situated just past the Grand Arcade in the city centre and has become one of Leeds’ cultural hubs when it comes to music, food and atmosphere. With three floors that include a bar, live music room and the most stunning roof terrace in the city, Belgrave has recently expanded its interests to clubbing brands as well as reputable live bands and solo acts. The middle floor has already seen great events including Set One Twenty and RBMA lectures, now it’s time for Vagabondz to take the reins.
The first instalment will take place on Wednesday the 1st of October and will see the energetic Manchester based hip-hop collective The Mouse Outfit take to the stage with Dr Syntax and Sparkz.
A week later on the 8th of October, local band Gentlemans Dub Club will be bringing us their eclectic sound of dub and reggae that has made them favourites of prominent music figures including BBC Radio 1 DJs David Rodigan, Huw Stevens and Rob Da Bank amongst others.
The third Vagabondz Live Sessions will see Fatima (pictured above) grace the stage joined by the entire Eglo Band. She is definitely not one to miss after her album ‘Yellow Memories’ spearheaded a summer full of touring at festival all around Europe.
Finally Wednesday the 22nd of October sees party people Hot Wuk take the lead, so you can be sure to expect inflatables, horns, whistles and top party vibes.
