Having beaten off the likes of The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City to win the coveted ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards, Live At Leeds is back for 2015 with a plethora of exciting acts across a multitude of venues.

Officially kicking off the festival season, Live At Leeds hosts the biggest names alongside the best in new and upcoming acts. Having played host to the likes of Bastille, James Blake, Wild Beasts, Bombay Bicycle Club, Rudimental and The Vaccines over the years, last year was one of the first places to catch future superstars and BBC Sound Of poll winners Years and Years. Live At Leeds provides a snapshot of everything that is vital in music right now.

Leading the charge amongst the first 100 bands to be announced Carl Barat & The Jackals featuring the Libertines legend with his new band, London alternative rockers Dry The River, the brainy art-pop of Dutch Uncles, Leeds’ noisiest sons Eagulls, the BBC 6 Music championed songwriting of Emmy The Great, ex-Supergrass main man Gaz Coombes, the incredible wordplay of BBC Sound Of shortlisted George The Poet and Leeds psych rockers Hookworms.

Pop heroes Lawson, Grammy nominated singer and producer MNEK, rising punk upstarts Slaves, indie favourites Spector, the rip-roaring folk of Stornoway, MOBO Award winner Stormzy, British-Australian quartet Sunset Sons, Birmingham indie poppers Swim Deep, living legend of noise and punk in the guise of his Thurston Moore Band and Scottish indie rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks will also provide must see sets!

With a supporting cast of incredible talent including North London sibling trio Jagaara, hotly tipped Canadian songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr, Welsh punks Joanna Gruesome and Nottingham duo Childhood making up the 200 bands across the weekend this is one not to be missed! Full Lineup Below:
