Live At Leeds has announced the schedule for this year’s festival which will see over 120 bands playing in various venues across the city between 3 and 6 May. Enjoy Digital has just released the festival’s first app and has relaunched the web site as part of a three year deal.
The app and digital work has been funded by the city’s development agency Leeds and Partners and works across both iOS and Android devices.
A new site, also built by Enjoy Digital has been created and for those who prefer their schedule in print, the Live At Leeds guide is now available at all the festival venues along with other entertainment locations in West Yorkshire.
The organisers are expecting over 7,000 people attending the peak day for events on Saturday 4 May with acts including Peace, AlunaGeorge, Laura Mvula and Everything Everything.
The headline sponsor is drinks brand Fosters.
The festival is expanding this year beyond the venues to various streets and shops around the city which will be offering in-store entertainment. These include Pretty Green, Dr. Martens, Made In Leeds and the new retail complex Trinity Leeds.
A spokesperson for Live at Leeds said: “We are excited to expand the festival this year both digitally and physically through the introduction of our first ever app and by co-ordinating activity outside of our traditional venues.
“The additional activity has been supported through the city’s desire to work alongside us and we look forward to seeing the outcomes of our new partnerships.”
