Looking ahead to Live At Leeds 2020, Festival Booker Joe Hubbard said: "We're ecstatic to welcome back DMA's and Pale Waves to Live at Leeds as headliners. Pale Waves caught everyone's attention headlining the Brudenell in 2018 preceding their rapid rise - and DMA's have gone on to sell out the Academy since their last appearance at the festival. Both bands really showcasing what LAL is about. I'm personally excited to see Ezra Furman make his debut at the festival and Marika Hackman return off the back of her brilliant new album. As always there's a real focus on emerging talent, with DYLAN, FEET and NOISY all being particular highlights, and a strong lineup of local artists including THE LOOSE CUT, VENUS and LEO COSMOS. From established headliners to brand new artists there's something for everyone to get stuck into."
Tickets will go back on sale at 9am on Wednesday 20th November, priced at £38 plus booking fee.
