Preview: Leeds Festival Saturday (Day Two)


Hangover Saturday aka Day two of Leeds promises to be a good n’ with Mumford & Sons heading the festival’s main stage for the first time, and with their recently released third album ‘Wilder Mind’ under their belts, they’ve chosen the perfect time to grace the stage.

Before the Mumford boys get going and earlier in the day – the main stage will see performances from Sheffield garage-rock duo Drenge. The Loveless brothers will be hyped playing their ‘local’ festival, and Palma Violets – the lambeth based quartet are sure to have the crowd on their side, when they play one of their biggest festival slots to date.

Away from the main stage, the NME/ BBC Radio One bill is as strong as ever with Saturday seeing the likes of the The Districts making their Leeds/Reading debut, and they will join ITJYM favourites Peace, Swim Deep and Parquet Courts on the bill… Expect the ever-popular Peace to pack out the NME/ BBC Radio One tent for their mid-afternoon set

One band that catches our eye on the BBC introducing Stage is Life. The Hull rockers have been knocking around for a while now – but they’re one to check out, with their nostalgic slice of mid 00’s garage-pop.

And over on the Festival Republic Stage – singer songwriter Misty Miller and her band will be performing. Misty has been prolific on the London gig circuit over the past couple of years, her folk meets punk output is quite unique, and she’s definitely one to catch if you’re not already booked up.
