Speaking about the festival, lead singer Aaron Starkie of The Slow Readers Club commented, “It’s great to be announced as part of a festival known for being ahead of the curve with new music. It’s a great lineup this year, and this will be our first time playing the festival, can’t wait.”

Clearly happy with the lineup for Live at Leeds 2019, Festival Director Andy Smith commented, “This year’s Live at Leeds line up is one of our most eclectic to date, and we’re really proud of how it’s shaping up. We have been trying to get Kate Tempest for years so I’m pleased that it has finally happened. It’s fantastic to see Drenge returning with a new album in time for this year’s festival and I can’t wait to see Confidence Man live again.

“Sam Fender is an artist we’ve been supporting for a while, we booked him for our One’s to Watch events last year, so it’s great to have him back at the festival having recently been crowned Brits Critics Choice, we think he’s going to have a huge 2019.

“Live at Leeds has always supported guitar music, and this year is no different with a huge representation of young British talent, including The Sherlocks, whenyoung, The Academic, Larkins and The Slow Readers Club.

“Emerging talent is at the centre of everything we do, so also happy to be adding hotly tipped new acts such as Bloxx, Indoor Pets, the brilliantly named Death By Unga Bunga and Kojaque.

“Still some more to be announced and as usual one or two surprise performances, we can’t wait for May when the summer starts.”
