The Symphonic Sounds of Back to Basics

The Symphonic Sounds of Back to Basics


The soundtrack to your summer is back and bigger than ever! Featuring some of the most infectious and energetic dance anthems from over the past three decades, this open-air concert is packed with club classics reworked and performed live by a 50-piece symphony orchestra.

The heart of Leeds will once again beat to a different rhythm as the Orchestra of Opera North, legendary Back to Basics DJ Dave Beer and an array of amazing special guest artists and vocalists come together on stage to deliver an epic musical celebration.

Having already submitted the European Capital of Culture 2023 Bid, join us to show how spectacular and vibrant the city of Leeds is in showcasing two of its much loved and contrasting musical institutions.
