Beacons Metro has announced a new wave of events to take place in Leeds as part of their autumn calendar.
After the announcement earlier in the year that Beacons Festival would no longer take place as a weekend event at its Skipton site, organisers had previously announced shows with Mac DeMarco, Titus Andronicus and Pissed Jeans to take place across northern cities.
The new announcement will see Factory Floor, East India Youth, Son Lux, Lonelady, TRAAMS and Ex Hex headline shows as part of a residency at Headrow House – a textile mill conversion in the heart of Leeds that’s soon to open as a multi-level arts and music centre.
In addition to this announcement, Hookworms will team up with producer Richard Formby – of Wild Beasts, Ghostpoet and Darkstar fame – to play a special show in association with Recon Festival.

They’re a band not concerned with hiding anymore.
Despite being dealt their fair share of bad luck in the last two years, turns out a little distance was just what Hookworms needed. “It’s important to remember the positives,” they tell Joe Goggins.
