The Welcome to Leeds Stage: curated by Sable

24th May 2024

Sable Radio are returning to the Welcome to Leeds stage, curating an evening of live music and DJs to kick of the Bank Holiday weekend!

Line-Up Includes:
6pm – 7pm: Sable DJs

7pm – 8pm: Summer Pearl (live band set)

Summer Pearl is a music artist from London, who has been consistent in writing, recording and performing in the UK and around the world since the age of 16.

Known for her care-free live performances and to the point lyrics, Summer Pearl transcends you to a place of soul and truth.
“My music is a reflection of my past and a meditation of our present. It is both a personal and sometimes political message exploring black and female liberation, love gained and love lost and anything I feel. I’m heavily influenced by Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop, R&B and Reggae. I channel the experiences of my ancestors, women and myself to conjure emotions to write and express”.

8pm – 9pm: Sable DJs

About the Welcome to Leeds Stage:

From Friday 24th  – Monday 27th May the free-entry, family friendly, outdoor Welcome to Leeds stage will be back on Cookridge Street as part of Leeds Jazz Festival 2024! The stage is programmed in collaboration with Leeds Conservatoire, Sable, DJ Lubi, Launchpad and JazzLeeds to bring you the best of local talent.

Situated between The Light and Henry Moore Institute, the stage has its own seating area, with food and drink on hand throughout the weekend, supplied by Radisson Blu and Browns. This year boasts an expanded food and beverage offering featuring a pop-up bar from North – who alongside ATA Records have created the official Leeds Jazz Festival beer and food from Little Bao Boy.

The Welcome to Leeds stage is produced by  LeedsBID alongside New Citizens and with backline support from Eiger Studios. Public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England alongside Launchpad pays artist fees on the Welcome to Leeds stage and we are incredibly thankful for their support.
