Live At Leeds Announces Second Wave

An essential date in the summer festival diary for indie-lovers and new music heads alike, Live At Leeds: In The Park continues to emerge as one of the best new festivals in the country – with the curated tastemakers at Live At Leeds pointing the way to the essential new names and trailblazing favourites that capture alternative music in 2023. Established as the perfect all-day festival experience for hands-in-the-air celebrations, Live At Leeds: In The Park 2023 gets even bigger with a slew of new additions announced today.

Joining a bill already stacked with unforgettable highlights, indie legends, the most talked about names in modern alternative music and those ready to be discovered as fans’ next favourite artist – is a true mix of styles and sounds born for festival moments. Since emerging back in 2014, DMA’s have become an undeniable force in modern guitar music. With their anthemic knack of soundtracking the highs and lows of modern life, they’ve continued to evolve with each step – establishing themselves as a bonafide live phenomenon with a rapturous fanbase that continues to grow and grow. With their anticipated fourth album ‘How Many Dreams?’ set to land in March, expect their set at Live At Leeds: In The Park to be nothing short of show-stealing.


Revered as one of the greatest live bands of all time, the perfect festival day simply can’t exist without The Hives. With a career spanning over 20 years, The Hives have torn apart stages across the globe with their feverish garage-rock and unpredictable live show that needs to be seen to be believed. With a summer tour with Arctic Monkeys planned, cuts such as ‘Hate To Say I Told You So’, ‘Tick Tick Boom’, ‘Main Offender’, ‘Walk Idiot Walk’ and more in their arsenal and lead by the unstoppable presence of frontman Pelle Alqmvist.

Cavetown has become a defining voice for an entire generation, with heart-on-sleeve odes and soaring tales alike grabbing attention from the very first release. This year’s ‘Worm Food’ served as Cavetown’s biggest statement to date, with its epic licks and singalong cuts bound to go down a storm when Cavetown rolls into Temple Newsam this May. Equally blazing a trail as a talked-about favourite is Crawlers, whose punchy kicks and alt-rock turns have captured the eyes and hearts of thousands across the globe. Debut mixtape ‘Loud Without Noise’ captured that excitement and more, with devastating honesty turned into defiant anthems that makes it clear that Crawlers are the future revolution waiting to happen

Live At Leeds: In The Park sits as the perfect accompaniment to the Live At Leeds experience that’s become such a vital date in the diary for live music fans, tastemakers and more. Its revered city-centre showcase has over the years been the first place to see the early steps of global superstars such as Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, The 1975, Lizzo, Royal Blood, Sam Fender, Sam Smith and many more – always one step ahead of the curve and pointing to the next big thing. The home of new music, Live At Leeds serves as more than just one day – but a trusted voice on the latest and greatest acts set to soundtrack the months and years ahead, whilst celebrating its unbelievable alumni who have graced its stages over the years.
