Having announced Local Natives, Roots Manuva, Hookworms and Anna Meredith earlier last month, Beacons Metro have this week added more acts to their 2016 events.
Leading the announcement is American alt-rock and grunge pioneers Dinosaur Jr, who will be performing at the Beacons Metro opening party at Leeds University Stylus on October 26th [tickets].
Canadian post-hardcore heroes Fucked Up will be performing their highly acclaimed debut 'Hidden World' in full at the Belgrave on October 27th [tickets], joined by one of the brightest lights of Nashville's thriving DIY rock movement, the quad guitar'd chaos of Diarrhea Planet.
The 27th October will also see Boxed In, the project of songwriter & producer Oli Bayston descend on Headrow House [tickets], hot on the heels of their most recent single, the punchy and electronic 'Jist'.
The reigning Queen of UK hip-hop Lady Leshurr will be returning to Leeds to lay waste to the Belgrave Music Hall, elsewhere Cats Eyes, consisting of the Horror's Faris Badwan, Italian-Canadian soprano, composer and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Zeffira and a huge supporting cast of musicians will perform at the beautiful Howard Assembly Rooms. Krrum are scheduled to return to Headrow House, and finally, New York based singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy who is quickly establishing herself as an exciting and forward thinking songwriter, will be making her Leeds debut at Headrow House on the 6th November.
As well as individual show tickets, there are a limited number of Beacons Metro 2016 Season Passes available that will give you access to all the Beacons Metro shows at a significant discount. Priced at £50 these are on sale now via DICE FM.
