Already boasting an untouchable array of current favourites and rising trendsetters Live At Leeds 2016 has added even more names to their 10th Anniversary spectacular, cementing its position as the go-to destination for the music that will soundtrack 2016.

Leading the new announcement is multi-award winning Yorkshire rose Corrine Bailey Rae returning 10 years on from the phenomenal success of her self-titled debut album. Lead by the classic wordings of “Like A Star” and “Put Your Records On”, it flew straight into the number 1 spot and soundtracked endless summer romances. Her hotly anticipated return is sure to be a defining moment of 2016, returning to the city where it all began with a momentous performance at Live At Leeds 2016.

Joining her on the line up is the electro-soul vocals of Shura, whose breathtaking tales of heartbreak and love has seen her garner acclaim including placements on the BBC Sound Of lists and more. With her debut album “Nothing’s Real” due to drop this year, expect anticipation to reach fever pitch for her performance at Live At Leeds. Sydney trio DMA’s will be bringing their BritPop inspired melodic rock to Live At Leeds fresh from the acclaimed release of debut album “Hill’s End” and their most recent sold-out UK Tour. Expect revelry and adulation, as DMA’s bring the hits to Live At Leeds 2016.

Speaking about their addition to the lineup, DMA’s frontman Tommy O’Dell said:
“Really looking forward to coming back to Leeds for the festival, it’s always one of our favourite cities to play”

Revered and acclaimed over the course of their decade together, Sheffield’s Slow Club have blended a wide array of genres and styles to form their very own distinctive sound. Unmistakably original, their global travels will pull them straight into Live At Leeds 2016 to unleash the next chapter in one of the most exciting cult bands going.

The Boxer Rebellion will be bursting into the city centre with their undeniable alternative rock whilst Zane Lowe-approved Mancunians Spring King are set to tear down the festival with their barrage of indie-rock gold. Three piece Scottish risers Fatherson will be bringing their heavy euphoric blend of rock to the stage in Leeds this year, with an unrivalled set that’s sure to be a true festival moment. Live at Leeds will also be greeted by the lush soulful pop sounds of female East London artist Jones, indie hallmarks The Hunna, rising buzzers Haelos, the in-your-face and revolutionary upstarts Shame, riotous rockers Otherkin and many more names and faces that are sure to leave their footprint on the music scene over the next 12 months.

These eclectic names join a mammoth line up of game-changes and iPod-shakers including BRIT and Grammy nominee Jess Glynne, the indie revitalists Circa Waves, undisputed cult indie icons Mystery Jets, electronic svengali Ghostpoet, guitar-led heroes We Are Scientists, urban rock hero and recent NME Award winner Rat Boy and many, many more – marking Live At Leeds 2016 as the true starting gate for this year’s festival season.
