More acts have today been announced for the increasingly ace looking Live At Leeds Festival 2013. Bands like The Strypes, Black Moth, Wet Nuns and Manchester’s own Swiss Lips will join the likes of Everything Everything, Dutch Uncles, Peace, Swim Deep and The 1975 for this three day event due to kick off on May 3rd. Of course, the above is just a taster of the action on offer. Live At Leeds aims to showcase the best up and coming acts alongside some more mainstream heavy hitters, an ethos us here at Northern Noise heartily endorse. With this goal in mind, they’ve gathered a list of performers mouth watering enough to get any music maniac salivating like a right idiot.
London Grammar, Likely Lads, Ruen Brothers, Misty Miller, Duologue and Kimberly Anne make up the remaining portion of today’s rosta additions. Meanwhile, details of The Unconference, an event designed to help guide budding musicians, has also be revealed. Taking place at Leeds College of Music, the event will focus on networking and the changing face of music in our wonderous digital era. A panel of experts will be in attendance, including Wichita Management’s Gareth Dobson, Closer Management’s Ryan Lofthouse, Big Life Management’s Colin Roberts and Peter White of Fear & Records. They’ll be fielding questions from you lovely people and dishing out advice like pros. Because they are, in fact, pros.
Live At Leeds has been running for the past six years and kicks off its 2013 bonanza with a pre-party at one of our favourite local haunts, The Cockpit. Taking place at a range of brilliant venues across the city, it’s quickly becoming a fest worth shouting about. With sets due from Darwin Deez, Laura Mvula, Rudimental and The Pigeon Detectives, as well as all those mentioned above and a whole heap of extra bands – put simply – it’d be a crime to miss it. We’ve pasted the full line up below for you to oggle. Go on, take a look. You know you want to.
