Full to the brim with the very best new music names, Live At Leeds is once again the definitive destination to find the essential sounds for the year ahead – cementing its position as the leading new music event of 2018 with even more incredible names confirmed for May 5th, and their biggest lineup to date.
Topping the bill with what’s sure to be a definitive Live At Leeds moment on the brand new Leeds Festival Stage, guitar kingpins The Vaccines will roll into view with a set of explosive indie anthems that’ll have thousands singing along in unison.
One of the most exciting British guitar bands of recent years, their electric presence has seen them travel the globe, with cuts like ‘If You Wanna’, ‘Teenage Icon’, ‘Handsome’, ‘Wreckin Bar (Ra Ra Ra)’ and ‘Norgaard’ lighting up crowds with unparalleled ease.
With new album ‘Combat Sports’ on the horizon and a new era for the band beckoning, The Vaccines next glorious step will be laid out in full as they return to top the bill at Live At Leeds.
Speaking about their headline slot at this year’s Live At Leeds, The Vaccines have said:
“Whether at our own shows or at the festivals, Leeds has proved itself time and time again to be one of the best audiences in the world. We really mean that. It was the first chants of ‘YORKSHIRE’ in 2011 that made us feel like we’d truly arrived. Having spent most of last year living in Yorkshire too ,and recording our new album there, this will also be somewhat of a homecoming – even if only in our heads. We can’t wait.”
Also announced in the latest wave of artists are Idles, Superorganism, Nadine Shah, Rae Morris, Yak, Bad Sounds, Cabbage, The Xcerts, Cosmo Pyke, The Night Cafe, King Nun, Sea Girls & many more on the website.
