As 2018’s festival season draws ever closer, Live At Leeds is once again standing as
the ultimate destination to hear the very best in new music and stunning live
favourites – adding a huge raft of names from across the musical landscape.
Not only bringing the essential sounds for the year ahead to the city, but also
championing the thriving music scene that flows through its streets, Live At Leeds
2018 sees one of its adored favourites return in the shape of Pulled Apart By
Horses. Packed with a menacing punch of garage-rock fever, they’ve become
renowned for adrenaline-fused live shows and an uncompromising ability to have
crowds in the palm of their hands in no time. With 2018 marking 10 years together as
a band, expect Pulled Apart By Horses set at Live At Leeds 2018 to be nothing short
of unmissable. With equally huge choruses to boot, 90s heroes Ash are sure to bring
a tour-de-force of infectious hits from across their storied career. Expect ‘Girl From
Mars’, ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Shining Light’ to erupt crowds when their phenomenal live
show rolls into Live At Leeds 2018.
Packed with thrilling new names, Live At Leeds is a coming together of the most
anticipated emerging talent you’ll be hearing talked about again and again in 2018
and beyond. Bound for a huge year ahead, Ten Tonnes will bring his vibrant and
punchy garage hooks to the city, likewise Liverpool’s own Louis Berry is set for a
defining Live At Leeds moment when his rockabilly charms take over the city.
These names join an already stunning bill leading the way in new music and future
superstars, from returning game-changers such as Circa Waves, Peace and The
Horrors to trailblazing new favourites such as Pale Waves, Blaenavon, Spring
King, Anteros, Lewis Capaldi, Tom Walker, Sam Fender, Will Heard, Grace
Carter, Boy Azooga, whenyoung, Bloxx and many more – Live At Leeds is the
celebration of new music that 2018 needs, and the first place to hear the essential
sounds it has to offer.
