Last weekend, I was lucky enough to be invited along to Live at Leeds Festival with The Blogger Programme and Zeitgeist. This year’s festival was celebrating their tenth anniversary! If you are unfamiliar with the festival it’s basically a metropolitan festival so it takes places in loads of different venues across the city with bands playing all day and into the night. Unfortunately on the morning of the Festival, headliner Jess Glynne had to pull out due to illness. I was pretty gutted about that but there was plenty of other great bands playing.
I brought my Brother along for the day as he know’s his stuff when it comes to music. We had drafted up a pretty casual schedule, marking off a couple of people who we wouldn’t mind seeing. The first venue we went to was Headrow House where I’d been the week before for brunch before #BlogOnTheBeach. It was mega busy with crazy crowds so we headed up to the O2 Acadamy which is one the largest venues at Live at Leeds. Mystery Jets were kicking off the live schedule at the Academy. They played a 45-minute set including some favourites from the noughties which the crowd went wild for. I really enjoyed seeing Mystery Jets as it was a band I wanted to see back in the day.
We spent the next couple of hours checking out some up and coming bands in different venues around Leeds. For food, we decided to eat in Trinity Kitchen who also had a Live at Leeds Stage. It was a really relaxed afternoon of discovering new music, enjoying a few drinks around the city. Later on in the evening, we decided to check out the Belgrave Music Hall where we saw Formation play out the festival.
I had a really great time at Live at Leeds Festival and discovered some really great bands and also venues around Leeds. The only problem we had was having too much choice of where to go as there was over 20 stages! If you aren’t a fan of camping (like me), this is the festival for you. Thanks again for the guys at The Blogger Programme and Zeitgeist for arranging this. Stay tuned for a post all about what I wore!
