This festival is no longer running.
Primal Scream, Hercules and Love Affair, Reverend and the Makers, Erol Alkan and Radio 1's Annie Mac are amongst the amazing line up that's set to put Leeds back on the music map, this May, with the launch of Waxon:Live Dance Festival.
Taking place against a rolling green countryside backdrop, deep in the Yorkshire Dales, the one day music event will boast a synergy between the old and new of the dance and party scene.
Consisting of six mighty music arenas, to cater for every music taste, and fresh from the massive success of it's monthly club residency in Leeds, Waxon:Live line up will include:
Arena 1 - Hercules and Love Affair (Live) & Erol Alkan (DJ), Late of the Pier (Live)
Arena 2 - Reverend and the Makers (Live), The Infadels (Live), Xpress 2 (DJ)
Arena 3 - Steve Lawler (DJ), Derrick May (DJ), Steve Bug (DJ)
Arena 4 Hospital Records - Shy FX, London Elektricity, Skream
Arena 5 - Matthew Herbert, Justus Kohncke Live, Ame + Dixon
Arena 6 - Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, The Count and Sinden Live, Friendly Fires
Waxon:Live creator Dan Blackledge comments: "Due to the success of the the Wax:on club night, an all day/night live version seemed the next step. With so many larger festivals moving down to London, I felt it was the perfect moment to give the people of Leeds and the North a current music event, with a plethora of different artist styles...and Waxon:Live was born."
Tickets for the hotly tipped dance event of the year go on sale Monday 17th March 2008 and are available from the waxon website. Tickets cost £39 per person.
Ticket price: £39 each
