CITY wide indie fest Live at Leeds is back for a fourth year next month.

The urban music festival spans 13 of Leeds’ live music hot-spots and features a host of well known bands alongside local emerging talent.

Fans can choose from 170 bands over the four day event which kicks of on Friday, April 30 with New Yorkers The Drums headlining at The Cockpit.

On Saturday May 1 the mezze of music lasts all day with a special £15 wristband giving access to all the gigs.

Local heroes Wild Beasts have been confirmed as one of the headliners while other top bands lined up for the day include Lightspeed Champion, Rolo Tomassi, 65daysofstatic, Ellen and the Escapades, Everything Everything, Hadouken!, Mariachi el Bronx, Sky Larkin and The Sunshine Underground.

For those with energy still to burn, the music and a series of complementary fringe events continue on Sunday and Monday (May 2 & 3) with esoteric indie rockers British Sea Power rounding things off at the unusual venue of Leeds’ Holy Trinity Church.
