This week saw the release of the full schedule for Live at Leeds 2014. Over the upcoming May bank holiday from 2nd – 5th of the month, some of the biggest upcoming artists from around the globe will grace the stages of a number of the city’s venues.
Alumni of the festival include the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Ed Sheeran, London Grammar and the 1975, so needless to say this year’s event will play host to artists we’ll be able to say we saw before they became household names, a year down the line.
This year’s line-up features artists of a variety of genres, so no matter which venue you find yourself in; you’ll be immersing yourself in fresh talent from across the musical spectrum and will no doubt reach the end of Saturday night having discovered some new sounds that you won’t have been expecting. Details of the full line-up can be found here

The diversity of the festival’s venues really sets Live at Leeds apart from others. Intimate settings such as A Nation of Shopkeepers, The Hifi Club and The Wardrobe will be ideal for those seeking a relaxed atmosphere, but for those hoping for the buzz of a larger venue; the O2 Academy and Leeds Town Hall will be sure to deliver in spades.
A £25 wristband will give you full access to all venues on Saturday 3rd May, a price affordable to all, even us students. A full list of ticket suppliers can be found here. Also be sure to sign up for email updates, follow the festival on Twitter at @liveatleedsfest and ‘like’ the official Facebook page at /liveatleedsofficial for up-to-date information and guidance to make sure you get your weekend planned well in advance.
