We're going to Leeds Fest!

Note: This article refers to Leeds College of Music (LCoM), the former name of Leeds Conservatoire

By Kath Hartley


Leeds College of Music has formed a partnership with music giants Leeds Festival, which will see LCoM students take to the stage to DJ across the campsites during the event. The festival, which takes place over the August bank-holiday weekend at Bramham Park, is one of the largest in the UK. Renowned for eclectic programmes bridging the festival’s rock roots with fresh new music, the 2018 line-up includes Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon and Dua Lipa.

The campsite DJ line-up will feature LCoM’s DJ society, Rotation DJs, and students from LCoM will also take on supporting roles in artist liaison over the weekend. 

Here’s a run down of just a few of the DJs that you’ll catch at the festival…
