A music festival celebrating 'the best in guitar fuzz, noise and hooks' from the UK and beyond.

Taking place at Leeds University's Students' Union on the upcoming May bank holiday Monday, Gold Sounds Festival's line-up reads uncannily like that of this year's Dot to Dot. No bad thing, given that names include noisy South Londoners Fat White Family, Madrid's up-and-coming garage/lo-fi outfit Hinds, Manchester post-punk queens PINS, surf-psych three-piece The Wytches and Glaswegian duo Honeyblood, along with Happyness, Colleen Green, Pity Sex Big Deal and many others.

Together these acts certainly paint a good picture of the strong guitar-led sounds doing the rounds these days.
