Live At Leeds has moved back to the end of the year, it’ll now take place in November

Pale Waves, Easy Life, Shame and more are still playing.

Live At Leeds has moved back to autumn.

The multi-venue city event was originally scheduled for May, but who knows if we’ll all be allowed to leave our houses by then. It’ll now take place on Saturday 28th November.

Many of the original bands are still on the bill – though DMA’s have had to pull out – including Pale Waves, Easy Life, Shame, The Magic Gang, Marika Hackman, Ezra Furman, Bad Sounds, Mystery Jets, Self Esteem, Spector, Temples, and more.

A statement from the event reads: “We made the difficult decision to reschedule the event, originally planned for May 2nd, following government guidelines and advice regarding the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our audience, artists, staff and crew is our priority, and given these extraordinary circumstances, it has become clear to us that the safe and sensible decision is to reschedule the 2020 edition of Live at Leeds to take place in autumn.

“This is the first time in 13 years we’ve had to move Live at Leeds, and doing so brings significant challenges for the festival and the artists alike. But though this virus has brought unprecedented disruption across all industries and around the world, we are determined that it won’t stop us providing you with the event we all deserve when this is over.”

All tickets for Live at Leeds remain valid for the rescheduled date. Ticketing providers will contact buyers in due course regarding their ticketing options.
