After an incredibly triumphant inaugural year, Live At Leeds: In The Park’s return on Saturday 27th May kickstarts festival season the right way. Set against the welcome backdrop of Temple Newsam, it’s a must-visit destination for those looking for their fix of unforgettable festival memories, soundtracked to the most sought-after acts the alternative and indie world has to offer. In 2022 Live At Leeds: In The Park’s successful launch saw Bombay Bicycle Club, The Vaccines, Arlo Parks, Easy Life and Sea Girls amongst many more perform across 5 stages for the ultimate introduction to the indie all dayer brimming with live music from all four corners of the globe.
Joining an already stacked bill is even more festival-highlights-in-waiting. Since emerging out of Newcastle in the early 00s, Maximo Park have become one of British guitar music’s most celebrated and influential bands – sprinkling grounded modern life across soaring indie bangers. With a feverish live presence lead by the unmistakable figure of frontman Paul Smith, the likes of ‘Apply Some Pressure’, ‘Our Velocity’, ‘Girls Who Play Guitars’, ‘Books From Boxes’ and ‘Graffiti’ are bound to set light to Live At Leeds: In The Park 2023 for a tour-de-force that needs to be experienced over and over again. Equally, Kate Nash’s place at the heart of alternative culture is guaranteed to shine bright when Kate rolls into Temple Newsam this summer. Breaking boundaries and pushing for meaningful change within the music industry across her career, Kate’s sense of independence and earnest celebration is bound to come to the fore this summer – with her distinctive voice and charm guaranteed to have Live At Leeds: In The Park moving in unison from the very first note. Get ready for a standout moment from a standout festival day.
Fresh from a breakthrough 2022, Manchester’s Lottery Winners have emerged as a true live force – travelling the globe with their own distinctive story-telling magic and a feel-good show that gets to the heart of what makes live music so special. After smashing into the UK Albums Top 20 with 2021’s ‘Something To Leave The House For’, new album ‘Anxiety Replacement Therapy’ is ready to take things even higher – with their appearance at Live At Leeds: In The Park coming but a month after, they’re guaranteed to be one not to be missed. Likewise, online sensation James Marriott brings his distinctive sound to Temple Newsam this summer with a devoted fanbase already flocking to his every move. Combining alt-rock influences with swooning hooks galore, expect this to be a chance to catch James before things get very big indeed.
Speaking about joining the Live At Leeds: In The Park lineup and Live At Leeds memories of years gone by, Lottery Winners said:“Live at Leeds is always one of my favourite festival line ups. It’s always crammed with all of my favourite bands, so I’m almost more excited to just go than to play. But I am proper excited to play – might even do a crowd surf.”
These new additions join a who’s who bill to make Live At Leeds: In The Park the perfect summer indie celebration. With festival headliners Two Door Cinema Club leading their way with their technicolour world of soaring anthems, the likes of DMA’s, The Hives, The Lathums, Everything Everything, Cavetown, The Big Moon, Black Honey, Tom Walker, CMAT, The Beths, Crawlers, Lime Cordiale, Brooke Combe, Gengahr, Bully, Pillow Queens, Lapsley, Rose Gray, Panic Shack, Opus Kink, Low Hummer, Dolores Forever, Priestgate, Deadletter and more make up a festival experience perfect for fans looking to discover their next favourite band.
Speaking about the final names added to Live At Leeds: In The Park, Festival Promoter Joe Hubbard said:“Can it be May already? We’re delighted to add even more names to the Live At Leeds: In The Park 2023 lineup – really bringing together an amazing array of names from across Live At Leeds’ history whilst remaining true to that core belief we all have to champion and support the most exciting new names in modern guitar music. Having the likes of Maximo Park and Kate Nash (who have soundtracked countless memories and influenced a ridiculous amount of artists) alongside the likes of acts like Lottery Winners, James Marriott and Medicine Cabinet really nails what Live At Leeds is all about – and these names joining an already packed bill makes me very excited indeed. All coming together on one day, it’s going to be a special party indeed. We’ll see you there!”
