"Joining DMA’s and Pale Waves are Shame, making their first appearance back in Leeds since a storming show at Stylus.

"Fickle Friends return with new material – their new single’s Pretty Great.

"We’ll have Mystery Jets – good news for all those who missed out on tickets to their sold out Wardrobe show, and a big scoop in twice-Mercury nominated Ghostpoet, who will be releasing his highly anticipated fifth album in 2020.

"As always with LAL there’s a host of exciting new talent, Alfie Templeman, Chinatown Slalom & Oscar Lang are all ones to watch for sure – and some of the best local acts about with Sfven, Jake Whiskin, Beauty School and Leo Cosmos amongst plenty there."

Tickets are on sale now.
