Peace, Circa Waves + The Horrors Lead First Names for Live At Leeds 2018

Live At Leeds announces first name on their 2018 line-up, and we’re already dead excited.

Sweeping up the best of the young and hopeful, alongside well established names within British indie, Live At Leeds already has a brilliant line up for next year’s festival.

BBC’s one to watch Pale Waves are set to perform, as well as Blaenavon, Spring King, Anteros and Kerrang’s favs Hey Charlie. Bringing in Circa Waves, The Horrors and Peace to grace the top of the bill, Live At Leeds seems to be the place to catch the best current acts and ultimately – the sound of 2018.

The acts seem well excited about this one.

Spring King “can’t wait to play again this year”, and  Anteros are “very excited to be coming back.”

And as The Pale White greatly put it:

“Live at Leeds was one of our highlights of 2017, a proper rowdy crowd who were up for it from the off. The festival is known for giving really great emerging artists a platform so we were incredibly flattered to be asked to headline their Ones to Watch 2018 showcase..”

The man himself, Festival Director Andy Smith states that:

“After arguably our strongest year for the festival in 2017, we’re excited to announce the first of many artist names for Live at Leeds 2018.

The festival has always been about showcasing new music and offering emerging artists a platform to build their audience in the North and this year is no different…. This year will once again be an excellent demonstration of the must see artists of 2018 – we hope you can join us to discover your new favourite band.”

Live At Leeds 2018 is a multi-venue festival taking place in Leeds City Centre on May 5th 2018.
