Annual festival for retro music lovers, Let’s Rock, is back for another yet as it is set to visit Leeds this summer.

Let’s Rock, a staple of the UK’s summer festival calendar, is set to return to Leeds for another year this June. The one-day annual festival, which features a stellar line-up of popular 80s bands and musicians, has been increasingly successful with tickets selling quickly.

Taking place at the city’s Temple Newsam Park on June 17, 2023, the fun is set to continue at a variety of sites this summer, taking in 11 locations across the UK from May to August, including Shrewsbury, Liverpool, and Scotland.

Let’s Rock Leeds’ line-up, which typically includes some of the biggest names in 80s music, is one of its most exciting aspects. Past performers have included, to name a few, Adam Ant, Wet Wet Wet, Billy Ocean, and Tony Hadley.

Last year, the festival saw a combined audience of over 150,000 people as they were entertained by many of the biggest stars of the era when British pop ruled supreme, including headliners Squeeze, who made their Let’s Rock debut.

Here is everything you need to know about one of the most popular music festivals in Leeds, the line-ups and how to get your tickets.
