High & Lonesome: Full line-up announced

By October 22, 2014

Film, TV & Tech. Leeds.


Live music, street food, a record fair, drinks, film screenings, talks, pop-up acoustic sessions, top music venues and Leeds’ oldest pub. Sounds like a recipe for a damn good festival…

On Saturday 22nd November, Dead Young Records presents the very first High & Lonesome festival and The State of the Arts is excited to be partnering the festival to bring you first hand news!

This one-day event will celebrate the influence of Americana in modern music and will incorporate three of Leeds’ finest independent venues: Holy Trinity Church, The Belgrave Music Hall & Oporto.

We are now excited to be able to announce the FULL LINE UP for the festival, which will showcase the most exciting new talent in the Americana genre alongside more established elements of the UK and international scenes.

Running from midday until 11pm, along with after parties at Oporto and Belgrave, the hand-picked line up will be complemented by fringe events and specially selected extras. This will include a record fair in the daytime at Trinity Church, film screenings, pop-up acoustic sessions and talks taking place in Whitelocks, Leeds’ oldest pub as well as themed street food and drinks menus incorporating some of the best restaurants and bars in Leeds. Yum!

**Earlybird tickets have now sold out but full event tickets are available for just £19 (including all booking fees) right HERE.**
