Two of the shining lights of modern alternative music will also play Temple Newsam next June. Get ready for Easy Life’s genre-bending anthems from debut album ‘Life’s a Beach‘ and Sea Girls‘ irresistible indie singalongs from new album ‘Homesick‘ having blown fans away at Live at Leeds in 2018 and 2019. Also on the bill, the groovy electronic soul of Honne and the tongue-in-cheek bubblegum pop of Aussie duo Confidence Man.
Rounding off the first announcement is a host of top new musical talent, all of whom promise to be highlights of next year’s festival season. Alt-pop star Finn Askew, off-kilter indie gems Courting and indietronica superstar-in-waiting Porij sit alongside Leeds‘ own bright young things L’Objectif, 60s-inspired New Zealander Molly Payton, Wrexham indie rockers The Royston Club and fast-rising Doncaster songwriter ADMT – you’ll be able to say you saw them all before they hit the big time.
“We’re incredibly excited to release the first ever Live At Leeds: In The Park line up,” promoter Joe Hubbard told us. “After the most difficult couple of years it felt amazing to deliver Live At Leeds: In The City this year, and following it up with this brand new event for 2022 makes the future feel really positive. Hopefully everyone loves this line up as much as us, and our loyal crowd enjoy having two festivals to look forward to in 2022!”
That’s right – fans of the venue-hopping fun of past Live At Leeds festivals don’t have to worry, they’re still doing them! Live At Leeds: In The City is just moving to later in the year, with its annual city-spanning feast of new music returning on Saturday 15th with the line-up to be revealed early next year. (mehr …)
