A PREVIEW OF LIVE AT LEEDS FEATURING TOP PICKS - 06/02/2018


Boasting a line-up with everyone from The Horrors to Blaenavon, it's time to brush the dust from your Doc Martens. That's right, Live at Leeds has announced it's line-up and it ain't half bad.

Live at Leeds takes place on 5th May across all the venues in Leeds from the Belgrave Music Hall to the Brudenell Social Club. With tickets costing just 36 pounds and all the talent on offer that is, it's without a doubt value for money! See three acts that'd usually be 12 quid each and you've made your money back, you'd be a fool to miss out.

What three acts should you see? Well why don't I give you five, from the festival favourites to emerging acts read on for my pick of the bunch as we here at Contagious Courageous are here to save you the stress of listening to the whole line-up. Read on to find out who we think are unmissable on the 2018 Live at Leeds Festival line-up.

THE HORRORS.

Boasting one of the stand out albums of 2017, Londoner's The Horrors are set up to showcase the songs of 'V' to the North! Anyone who caught them on their previous tour will be made up to get to see these lot again. the band's frontman Faris Badwan thanked the city of Leeds at their last show for providing such a special moment when they played at Leeds Festival and the crowd sang their lyrics even after they'd left the stage.

BLAENAVON.

I got the chance to see Blaenavon at The Wardrobe and can't believe how far they've come in such a short space of time. They seem dead set on being The Maccabees or Foals for the new generation and I wouldn't see that as a great stretch. Now with their fabulous album released, it's time to learn the lyrics and get to the front to sing their songs back at them.

SORRY.

They've been keeping themselves busy, this London based four-piece haven't they? From supporting Wolf Alice a few years back to changing their name (Fka Fish) and most importantly releasing a brilliant EP last year. I think that not before long they'll be one of the biggest bands in the UK and rightly so.

QUEEN ZEE.

I haven't yet had the chance to catch Queen Zee live however I've heard great things from very good sources! Go catch them!

PEACE.

Indie titans Peace return to the live circuit for the first time since 2015's Happy People. Expect a wondrous set with both albums on display and some tracks from the new album from this Birmingham bunch.
