Class of 2022 Yard Act to headline our Class of 2022 tour!

The Leeds group will also be on the cover of our new issue!

Well, we did it team! Another (somewhat more normal) year is about to come to an end, and while things may not have been quite the same as they were pre-C word, one thing that’s certain is that the last twelve months have had some amazing new acts soundtracking them. And now it’s about time we celebrated that…

It probably comes as no surprise that we’ve had Leeds four-piece Yard Act on heavy rotation this year - since playing Hello 2021 in fact - and with their eagerly-awaited debut album ‘The Overload’ set to solidify their status as the buzziest in the ‘biz next year, we obviously had to get them on the cover of our Class Of 2022 issue!

And to mark the occasion, we’re teaming up with Kilimanjaro to take them on tour in January for a big ol’ party with loads of our other faves - including fellow Class of 2022 inductees Lime Garden and English Teacher. You can grab your tickets for that now.

Check back v soon to find out what other exciting new acts have made our Class Of 2022 issue, and check out the full DIY & Kilimanjaro presents… Class Of 2022 tour dates below!
