Yorkshire's big city festival leads the way - Live at Leeds 2011 line-up just announced

Posted: 16th February 2011
Live at Leeds

It's not just Manchester, London and Brighton with all the festival fun - Leeds also plays host to the imaginatively-titled Live at Leeds 2011 Festival. Billed as three days of music and arts, the weekender showcases dozens of new and upcoming artists at several different venues.

You need a wristband to get into the shows, available as daily passes - Saturday day tickets are on sale now priced at £17.50 per day. The event takes place from Friday 29th April until Sunday 1st May.

The true value of the tickets comes to light when you see the line-up. BBC Sound of 2011 nominee Anna Calvi, alt-rockers Pulled Apart By Horses and psych-poppers The Duke Spirit lead the way, along with acclaimed soul-man Aloe Blacc and the slightly-eccentric The Young Knives. Beyond these five decent names (with more to be announced in due course), you also have Dutch Uncles, The Whip, Trophy Wife, Gabrielle Aplin and Kassidy.

As soon as we have more details about the line-up, we'll publish an update for you right here!
