Weekend City Festivals – Our Top Picks



Live at Leeds

An award-winning festival spanning back over ten years, Live At Leeds is back after it’s sold-out success of 2017! Returning on the 5th May 2018 to bring the most exciting names and sounds to the city, Live At Leeds is a true coming together of the best in new music.

So far established indie-rockers The Vaccines, Peace, Circa Waves and The Horrors have been announced to lead the stage; whilst upcoming, but still equally brilliant, Cassia, Her’s, Louis Berry and Superorganism have also been confirmed to take over the city centre this Spring. With such a certified line-up every year of current favourites and soon-to-be, Live At Leeds has become a go-to destination to see the artists that’ll be making their mark in the months and years ahead.

What’s more, as a metropolitan day festival, there’s no muddy camping in site! So you get to experience the day in style with no wellies, mucky toilets or sodden tents and are free to roam the bustling city of Leeds as you please.
