Live at Leeds Festival Rescheduled in midst of Coronavirus Outbreak
Live At Leeds 2020 have made the decision to reschedule as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. The festival was set to go ahead on the 2nd of May, but amid the outbreak organisers have now been forced to act in accordance with UK government guidelines and advice in regards to the ongoing health crisis.
Organisers said in a statement "The health and safety of our audience, artists, staff and crew is our priority, and given these extraordinary circumstances, it has become clear to us that the safe and sensible decision is to reschedule the 2020 edition of Live at Leeds to take place in autumn,” the organisers of the festival said in a statement.
Above: Shame will still be performing at the festival.
“This is the first time in 13 years we’ve had to move Live at Leeds, and doing so brings significant challenges for the festival and the artists alike. But through this virus has brought unprecedented disruption across all industries and around the world, we are determined that it won’t stop us providing you with the event we all deserve when this is over.'
The change in date means that DMA’s will no longer be playing at Live At Leeds due to a scheduling conflict.
