The biggest indie day of the year in Yorkshire is back in 2015 - and its unveiled a major chunk of this year’s line-up.

Live at Leeds have announced more than 100 bands for the event on the early May Bank Holiday which takes place at more than 20 stages across the city over the early May Bank Holiday.

Having beaten off the likes of The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City to win the coveted ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards, Live At Leeds has a few coups up its sleeve this time, too.

Big names announced so far include Carl Barat & The Jackals, featuring the Libertines legend with his new band, London alternative rockers Dry The River, the brainy art-pop of Dutch Uncles, ex-Supergrass main man Gaz Coombes, the incredible wordplay of BBC Sound Of shortlisted George The Poet, Leeds’ noisiest sons Eagulls and Leeds psych rockers Hookworms.
