Guitar infused rock/pop and anthemic choruses. Having previously seen these guys allbeit briefly at Live at Leeds, this is a gig well worth checking out to kickstart your weekend antics.

Festivals this weekend… (3)

All of these festivals make me happy. Okay, so, excited. It means the height of British Summertime has arrived.

We’re going up into North Yorkshire now.

The last one I’m featuring this weekend is;

The Deer Shed Festival – Baldersby ParkTopcliffe, Thirsk, YO7 3BZ


(C) Deer Shed Festival


Price? Due to popular demand only Tier 3 Adult tickets remain at £109.00 for the weekend

Headed up by the likes of Johnny Marr, British Sea Power and Stornoway; the music combined with the arts, family events and of course, the Science element of the festival really make this a unique one-of-a-kind weekend.

Festivals this weekend… (1)

I’m genuinely devastated I didn’t work this one into my ‘live music budget’ for the month…

Although not strictly ‘Leeds’, I guess we can stretch to cover the county for one post or so?

Head into South Yorkshire this weekend and you’ll find the following;


Tramlines Festival 2014 – Sheffield  


(C) Tramlines Festival

(C) Tramlines Festival

Price? £28.00 for the weekend. £12 for a day ticket

Think of it as a Live at Leeds – in Sheffield. This festival hosts artists over the course of 3 days across the city. Highlights of the weekend include the likes of; Funeral For A Friend, Katy B, The Cribs and Annie Mac. You may also realise pretty quickly that a fair chunk of the artists that graced the stages of Live at Leeds this year are making an appearance


Actually the entire line up is ridiculously good so it’d be much easier simply to link you all to it:


I’m quite saddened I didn’t realise this was coming up as soon as this otherwise my tickets would have been booked with immediate effect. With the rare British sunshine due to stick around for some more days to come it’d be foolish to miss it

What are you waiting for? Go go go!
