Live at Leeds has begun celebrating fifteen years of the metropolitan festival on the weekend it usually takes place.

The festival which usually hosts the event on the first Saturday of May has been forced to postpone the event until Saturday, 16 October 2021.

Live at Leeds have taken to social media to share some huge names that have performed for the festival over the last 15 years with names like Ed Sheeran, AJ Tracey and Lizzo having all graced its venues.

The festival had to be cancelled last year after the coronavirus pandemic hit, making both the original date of 2 May and its rescheduled date in November not possible.

Manchester’s Pale Waves were due to headline the event with Shame, Easy Life, and The Coral also on the line up.

Live at Leeds have hinted that the October line up for 2021 will soon be revealed. Tickets are available now and can be purchased here.

The festival began in 2007 to mark the city of Leeds’s 800th birthday and was jointly hosted by Leeds City Council and music promotion company Futuresound.

This initial event took place at the end of May and featured around 50 bands playing live in and around Leeds city centre along with film screenings and a music industry seminar. The following event took place over the weekend of the May Day bank holiday and featured two concerts by Leeds band The Pigeon Detectives at Millennium Square as its centrepiece.
