On 6 December, The Festival Awards 2018 decided that Live at Leeds was ‘Best Festival For Emerging Talent’.
The competition was strong – Dot To Dot Festival (2017 winners), Festival No.6 and FOCUS Wales were amongst those vying for this prestigious accolade. A panel of experts decided that Live at Leeds deserved to be named ‘the festival that most effectively supports and promotes the smallest names on its line-up, helping to guarantee a future in which festivals remain musically vibrant and diverse’.
Andy Smith, Head Booker at Live At Leeds, was asked for his reaction:
“We’re delighted to have been named Best Festival for Emerging Artists at the UK Festival Awards this year. Showcasing new talent is at the heart of everything we do at Live at Leeds. The festival has now become one of the key showcase events in the UK so it’s fantastic to have been recognised for all the hard work that goes into producing the bill each year. Keep your eyes open for more line-up announcements. Live at Leeds will be the first place to catch the most hotly tipped acts of 2019.”
