Once again, Transgressive - possibly the coolest record label, live promotions, publishing and management outfit in the
country - and friends take over the Alternative Stage at Leeds Festival.
We will curate, DJ and host two nights of the festival's late-night entertainment on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August.
Amongst the line-up this year are some fantastic festival exclusives - including live performances from DISCLOSURE, SUMMER CAMP and the Mercury-nominated GHOSTPOET, plus sets from hotly tipped up-and-comers such as Transgressive's own THEME PARK, as well as ALUNAGEORGE and OUTFIT. And to close the weekend on Sunday night in suitably triumphant fashion, there will be an exclusive, late night DJ set courtesy of none other than METRONOMY - fresh after they headline the Dance Tent. In addition to special guest live appearances and DJ sets, there will also be bespoke, unique visuals accompanying every act throughout the night.
Commenting on this year's involvement, Transgressive founder Toby L said: 'Each year we've been fortunate to receive a loyal and packed attendance from the good people of Leeds, as well as present early performances from acts that have gone on to some massive things. For anyone that's new to what we do: we kick off late when the headliners and other live stages have long gone to sleep for the night, and turn the Alternative Stage into a bit of a party. On Saturday and Sunday night, we hope everyone can join us in ushering in the early hours once again...'
Past artists to have provided live appearances at the Transgressive take-over at the Alternative Stage include SBTRKT, Noah & The Whale, Laura Marling, Two Door Cinema Club, Pulled Apart by Horses, Warpaint, Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit and Everything Everything, plus DJs including Bombay Bicycle Club and Becoming Real.
