The aim of our first indoor music festival in Leeds, is to appeal to people of all ages and attract live music lovers with wide musical tastes.
With two co-headliners that span musical generations; Dr. Feelgood and The Kris Barras Band, a rising star from across the channel and three other acts that are determined to leave their own mark on the UK music scene, we think we have got it right!
Formed on Canvey Island in Essex in the early 1970s, Dr. Feelgood remain one of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world. The raw and uncompromising style of their performance resulted in the album Stupidity that immediately went to the number one position in the U.K. charts. They have enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles and continue to tour extensively around the World.
UK Guitarist Kris Barras has a genre-defying sound: a high-energy hybrid of no-nonsense Rock, Blues and Country. Winners of ‘Best New Band’ in the 2018 Planet Rock awards, the Kris Barras Band have become one of the UK’s fastest rising acts. Recently voted one of the 'Top Blues Guitarists in the World' (Music Radar) and winning the ‘Best Album’ accolade in the European Blues Awards, perhaps best demonstrates the band’s fluidity and appeal to fans of different genres.
