In its eighth year, Live at Leeds has quickly become an institution in the Leeds calendar taking place in numerous city venues and hosting national names and local talent performing at venues around the city centre in a celebration of new music.
As well as this the weekend features a separate set of eclectic, stand alone ‘Live At Leeds presents’ shows. These are separate ticketed events, where Saturday wristband’s are not valid. On Friday 2nd May The Cockpit will host Blood Red Shoes, the Brudenell Social Club showcases Melt Yourself Down (Full A/V Show), and The Wardrobe has Snarky Puppy.
Tickets for these events have not yet been announced.
