In proud association with Independent Venue Week, the ‘Exclusive Line Up Reveal’ event will take place at Leeds’ iconic indie hub The Wardrobe on Thursday 31st January, and will see the festival announce its 2019 programme to a live audience from 6.00pm that evening.

In honour of the occasion, this official launch show will also preview three of the many promising local acts set to appear at Live At Leeds 2019 this May, with exhilarating live performances on the night. 


Topping the bill are Wakefield’s – SKINNY LIVING – a band that started out busking on the streets of Yorkshire, yet whose assured soulful indie has seen them score a recent signing deal with major label: Sony Music. Having sold out numerous shows across the region already and performed a headline gig at the huge 1000 cap Stylus in Leeds, the way these lads are heading there’s little chance you’ll see them in a venue this cosy again any time soon.

Hull’s finest and freshest – THE HUBBARDS – will support with a set of their infectious indie rock. Featured on some of Spotify’s biggest playlists, the four piece have built-up a strong following across Yorkshire and beyond already, and kick-started the new year named as an ‘artist to watch for 2019’ by BBC Introducing / Radio 1. Recently opening Hull’s Bonus Arena to much acclaim, The Hubbards will be out to impress at this Wardrobe showcase. 

And, sure to captivate with their muscular, riff-packed indie-rock, Leeds’ own – ORMSTONS – will get the evening’s proceedings underway with a bang to a hometown crowd. 

Tickets are a steal at just £2.00 and extremely limited, so be quick to avoid any disappointment…
