Across The Tracks

29th and Sunday 30th July

Leeds City Centre

Leeds is one of the hottest places on the music scene to be at the moment, with such a great selection of music venues, it's becoming very well renowned for attracting the best new talent spanning through all the genres.

How can this be made better? by a selection of the premier music venues teaming up for a 2 day music festival right in the city centre! With a selection of DJ's, Bands, collectives & solo artists, Across The Tracks music festival promises to be something special.

Taking place over the weekend of Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July at the canal-side Granary Wharf venue. There will be 4 stages on each day, with 2 outdoor stages (one open air stage, one tent stage) next to the Leeds-Liverpool canal, with 2 indoor stages under the railway arches including Blank Canvas.
