Other highlights include special performances from some of the region's best homegrown talent: Myna, babyschön, Rimzi, Marjai and festival organiser Andrew Devine.

DJ babyschön said: “I had a wicked time at Adaptations last year as a punter so I’m really excited to be back to play in October, especially as part of a huge lineup of DJs from Leeds and further afield.”

The festival will also have a full production set-up with gund systems, artwork and installations by local artists.

Festival organiser and Natural Selection resident, Andrew Devine said:

“Last year proved to be extremely busy with it being the first edition of the festival and just out of covid restrictions but I remember around 3 hours in, I was already planning this year's event. It’s such a buzz to be back organising this massive party and bringing artists like Moktar to Leeds for the very first time.

"Keep an eye out because we have more in the pipeline to announce including a very exciting daytime programme.”

Adaptations will take place across Belgrave Music Hall and Headrow House in Leeds City Centre from noon on Saturday 1 October.
