Live at Leeds has announced the first wave of acts for its new one-day festival, Live At Leeds: In The Park.

The indie festival which will take place at Temple Newsam in Leeds on June 4, 2022, has confirmed that Bombay Bicycle Club, Nothing But Thieves, Finn Askew, Easy Life, Arlo Parks and Sea Girls are amongst the first acts confirmed to appear.

Organisers say that the event will be an “in the park” version of Live at Leeds In the City, a one-day festival which showcases some of the best indie names across multiple venues in the city over the May Bank Holiday weekend. Following the 2021 event being pushed back due to the pandemic, the 2022 “in the city” will again take place at multiple venues on October 15, 2022.

“We’re incredibly excited to release the first-ever Live at Leeds In the Park lineup,” says Live At Leeds: In The Park, festival promoter Joe Hubbard.

“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 lineup as much as we do, and our loyal Live at Leeds crowd enjoy having two festivals to look forward to in 2022!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
