    The Cockpit is an independently run live music and club venue in the heart of Leeds city centre managed by locally based promoters Futuresound Music. The venue is built underneath a series of three railway arches, giving the venue its distinctive curved ceilings.

    The Cockpit has attracted some of the biggest names in music to Leeds and remains dedicated to seeking out the most exciting new bands and singers at the very start of their careers. In the last 15 years Coldplay, The White Stripes, Amy Winehouse, Queens of the Stone Age, Flaming Lips, The Libertines, Mars Volta, My Chemical Romance, Panic at the Disco, The Hives, Elastica, Les Savy Fav, The Killers, At The Drive In, Fall Out Boy, Hot Chip and Bloc Party amongst many, many others have taken to the Cockpit stages for truly legendary performances.

    Gigs take place on all three stages most nights of the week showcasing bands from the Leeds music scene to an international level. Club nights follow the live music on Tuesdays to Saturdays where you'll hear indie, rock, electro, guitars, metal, skate-punk and much more.
