Live at Leeds festival timetable released

Written by

Marker pens at the ready, folks. Live at Leeds have just released their jam-packed timetable so you can start putting a ring around the acts you want to see on May 2, ironing out your all-important festival strategy and making any tough decisions in advance. Will you watch former Sonic Youth guitar mangler Thurston Moore or indie-rock national treasures The Cribs?

The main all-day event on Saturday May 2 kicks off at 12noon with The Riptide Movement, Skinny Living, Forever Cult, Johnny O'Donnell, Chaika, Colour of Spring, Polo and Ngod opening across city-centre venues. Bookending proceedings as the final acts to take to the stage at 11.15pm are nu-R&B dude MNEK and those deceptively clever punk-rock yobs Slaves.

Also on the bill are Dutch Uncles, Emmy the Great, Gaz Coombes, George the Poet, Lucy Rose, Palma Violets and Spector, plus a raft of ear-pummelling local acts including Brawlers, Hookworms, Eagulls and Menace Beach.

You can download a PDF version of the Live at Leeds timetable from the festival website… and then get highlighting, snipping and covering with laminate. You know you want to.

Check out five things that are likely to happen at Live at Leeds.
