This appeared on the Live at Leeds social media feeds the other day.
We like this imagery. It means things are happening, all good things.
Saturday 30th April will be the 10th anniversary of Live at Leeds. Considering the success over this time period, I can imagine a significant celebration will be in order. Now is as good a time as any to prove why Leeds is still THE place to come to for music of all genres, no matter how established an act is.
The event has stood firm through the years and many of the venues once known for hosting large sections of the day have now diminished. My fear, admittedly, was at the rate this was happening, the style of the festival itself would have to be compromised.
Thankfully this has not been the case.
Extended to include a digital programme in the days prior to the one-dayer we all know the best, it really will be a week of events that show people that Leeds will always be a place for live music.
Now let’s be patient and see what is in store for what is undoubtedly one of the best metropolitan festivals across the nation.
