Pale Waves, Easy Life and Marika Hackman are among the new names announced.

With 55 names confirmed today, Live At Leeds are staking their claim as one of 2020’s funnest festivals, boasting a line-up of both big names and emerging talent.

Heading North for Saturday 2nd May, DMA’s and Pale Waves will be headlining, with Marika Hackman, Easy Life, Ezra Furman, Self Esteem and loads more also confirmed.

Set to be one hell of a weekend, festival booker Joe Hubbard says of the 2020 line-up: “We’re ecstatic to welcome back DMA’s and Pale Waves to Live at Leeds as headliners. Pale Waves caught everyone’s attention headlining the Brudenell in 2018 preceding their rapid rise - and DMA’s have gone on to sell out the Academy since their last appearance at the festival. Both bands really showcasing what LAL is about. I’m personally excited to see Ezra Furman make his debut at the festival and Marika Hackman return off the back of her brilliant new album. As always there’s a real focus on emerging talent, with DYLAN, FEET and NOISY all being particular highlights, and a strong lineup of local artists including THE LOOSE CUT, VENUS and LEO COSMOS. From established headliners to brand new artists there’s something for everyone to get stuck into.”

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 20th November, and you can check out the whole poster below:
