Made in Leeds is set to return on Saturday July 3, moving from Thwaite Mills to the South Leeds Stadium.

The annual dance music festival was cancelled in 2020 due to coronavirus restrictions, but organisers are hopeful the event can return this year.

Under the Government's road map out of lockdown, the initial date of June 21 has been set for all restrictions to be eased - permitting festivals and large gatherings.
