Details

Leeds is all set to welcome a new, ambitious and exciting cultural festival to its events calendar this spring. Say hello to Leeds International Festival (LIF) taking place from April 22nd-30th.

LIF will focus on three main strands: music, moving image and technology, showcasing the best of what Leeds has to offer, with a stellar line-up including film premieres, headline performances, exhibitions and conferences, with keynote speakers leading the debates.


CUTTING EDGE MUSIC IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
Leeds International Festival music is led by Live at Leeds, winner of the UK Festival Award for Best Metropolitan Festival. LIF will host a diverse range of music events including live performances, an Unconference (28th April), workshops and industry events across the week.


PREMIERES IN THE BIRTHPLACE OF FILM
The festival will see the screening of two premieres: “Do You Want To Win?” a special documentary on Leeds United and the latest instalment in the Music in Leeds film series, produced by City Talking and the BBC.


THE FUTURE OF TECH
This year’s tech strand will celebrate future trends and the evolution of technology in Leeds. Innovative events include “Empowering Women with Tech”, a one-day conference featuring female industry leaders as diverse as Lauren Laverne, Susie Bubble and Emmy Lovell, VP of Digital for Warner Music Group.
