As the Bank Holiday weekend set in, Leeds was once again transformed into a sprawling hub of music, with around 200 artists playing across 20 stages dotted all over the city. Founded in 2006, Live at Leeds has provided a platform for new and more established acts alike, growing every year and championing some of the best emerging talent from across the genres. This year saw it boasting performances from Lucy Rose, Emmy The Great, The Cribs, Slaves and George The Poet amongst plenty of new talent.

Kicking off to a wet and windy start, the drizzle didn't do much to dampen the mood as the music got under way with punters packing their way into the intimate venues throughout the day. Gaz Coombes provided one of the early highlights, working through tracks from his latest album Matador, whilst elsewhere Chloe Black brought some glamour to the packed-out crowd at the Belgrave Music Hall with her unique brand of cinematic pop.

As the rain continued to pour, the music continued to play out with a particularly impressive set from Brussels-born producer Oceaán at the tiny HiFi club where a new life was breathed into the likes of online favourites 'The Grip' and 'At Your Feet' that brought midnight-vibes to the early afternoon slot. Electronic duo Honne were next to the stage with a soulful yet short set that was assisted by a tight backing band that brought their insatiable mixture of dance, soul and electronic music to life.

EKKAH helped welcome in the evening with a brilliant disco-fuelled set that included saxophone solos and their dazzling cover of Patrice Rushen's '80s club classic 'Forget Me Nots' ensuring that every person in the room was shimmying and adequately warmed up for a jam-packed evening of music.

The evening line-up ensured there was something for all tastes. If it was some soft, romantic vibes you were after, then Tobias Jesso Jr brought his heartfelt balladry to Leeds College of Music, or if you wanted to continue dancing Nimmo were brewing a storm with their electronic dance tunes on the other side of town.

The sheer expanse of the venues and the strong range of headline acts meant tough decisions had to be made when deciding what part of town to commit to. The Cribs lashed out in their notorious chaotic style at one end, while Lucy Rose performed a stunning set that included some new tracks from her forthcoming album at the Holy Trinity Church. Ultimately, it didn't really matter where you ended up as every single venue across the city was packed out and buzzing with energy as music fans bustled for space and danced the night away.

Metropolitan music festivals can be hard to carry off, but Live At Leeds has got the formula just right, providing an interesting array of venues and artists that supports the independent music industry as much as the local venues. A vast amount of genres and artists are catered for making it an exciting and accessible music event for all kinds of music lovers (especially those who aren't too keen on camping.)
