Festival Preview: Live At Leeds

Live At Leeds 2015

live at leeds

live at leedsLive At Leeds returns for another year with another massive massive list of new bands who are all battling it out for your attention. The festival has a focus on new music and even some of the headlining acts are still relatively babes in arms, with a few exceptions of the likes of Reverend And The Makers and

The festival itself actually runs from the 1st to the 4th of May with Friday seeing The Unconference and Opening Party take place and Monday sees Live At Leeds host a Music Charity Football match with live music, footy and great food to round off the perfect bank holiday weekend.

Saturday is when, in our opinion, all the action takes place. With so many clashes it’s going to be a tough decision for any festival goer. That being said though it just means that whoever you see you are guaranteed to leave happy. A full schedule can be downloaded from here.

Below are just some of our top picks as well as a bumper Live At Leeds playlist with more of our faves to get you in the mood.

Tickets £27.50 on sale here.


Louis Berry -Faversham 14.30

Louis Berry recently won the coveted “one to watch in 2015” award at Liverpool’s The Git Awards. An accolade he proved worthy of when he performed his faced paced rock n roll track  45, live at the ceremony. He’s certainly up there with one of the bands we’re hoping to catch again.

IYES – A Nation Of Shopkeepers 17.00

Brighton duo Iyes have been keeping busy building their profile since we first saw them well over a year ago supporting Saint Raymond at Club NME. The pair both bring exciting vocals to the pot as well as delightful electronica that never fails to put a smile on our faces.

Osca – Leeds College Of Music 16.30

Osca are actually the only band we’ve never seen play live who has made it to our top picks to watch. The reason being is that we’re really keen to see how this band get across their stunningly atmospheric sounds in a live environment.

Rhodes –  The Wardrobe 20.00

It’s no secret that Rhodes has become one of our most loved and most talked about musicians of the past 12 months. We’ve already seen him play numerous shows all over the country and with so many bands on offer to us it’s testament to him that we keep going back. He is now playing with a full live band, giving an entirely new dynamic to his sound. Either way, he gets our vote.

Prides – The Wardrobe 21.30

We first caught Prides playing on the BBC Introducing Stage at Leeds Festival last year and they very quickly won us over with their unashamed love of 80s pop and everything that comes before and after. They are able to pen catchy number time and time again and their live performance is made for big stages.
