What else does the city of Leeds have to offer this May?
So, Live At Leeds is but two weeks away from bringing some of the country's best music veterans and up and coming stars to one of its greatest cities. But while you're there, you may as well enjoy the rest of what this incredible Yorkshire city has to offer.
Home to two universites, an extraodinary library, a colossal shopping centre and some of the best restaurants in the nation, Leeds is the place to be to kick off festival season even without taking the music into account. While the weekend of May 1st to 4th may boast a line-up including The Cribs, Gaz Coombes, George The Poet, MNEK, Gengahr, The Strypes and more, there's plenty of places to sit and let it all soak in while enjoying a decent meal and a pint.

It was another successful year in Brighton for The Great Escape.
Brighton's Great Escape Festival took place over the weekend and, as the UK's largest street festival, gave music fans a very enjoyable weekend as it does every year. Over 400 acts played, giving the punters chance to see plenty of acts; be it established acts such as Example, These New Puritans, Pulled Apart By Horses and Twin Atlantic, or newer artists such as Gnarwolves, Big Ups, Circa Waves, Prides, MØ and Brawlers. This gave the festival goers a chance to see some old favourites, as well as check out the new talent.
Nu-rave heroes Klaxons played a secret show on Thursday at midnight in The Warren, a 400 capacity venue, giving their fans a chance to see them in a smaller setting than usual. Klaxons expressed their love of the festival, saying that they enjoyed coming as fans just to see bands. They're especially keen on the intimacy of the festival: 'They've got people right in front of your face; it's brilliant, the connection. You can look people in the eye and they're not miles away'. The band played a mixture of both old songs and new ones that they haven't had chance to play live yet. Co-vocalist and keyboardist James Righton showed his enthusiasm for the new songs saying he couldn't wait to play 'Show Me A Miracle'.

Dance duo Gorgon City made waves with 'Ready For Your Love' featuring MNEK, but are you ready for their debut album?
London producers Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott have banded together to form a new electronic project, Gorgon City, which sees them fuse together elements of house, D&B and garage to create their distinctive pop sound.
The duo were originally individual artists in their own right, known as Foamo and RackNRuin, before they signed to Black Butter Records (Rudimental, Joel Compass, Kidnap Kid) as Gorgon City. 2012 saw them release their debut EP 'The Crypt', which was soon followed up by their 'Real' EP featuring Manchester born singer Yasmin on the title single. The track gave them their first real taste of success as it entered into the UK Singles Chart and even made the top 10 in the Indie Chart. Selling more than 47,000 copies in the UK, 'Real' was landed with the 'Record Of The Week' title from Radio 1; a feat that was soon to be repeated with third single 'Intentions' featuring Clean Bandit.
