The Brainwash Festival will return to Leeds for a third year on the weekend of 17-19th October having hosted Oceansize, This Et Al, iLiKETRAiNS, Clark, Youthmovies, Unsane, Adem and many more over the last couple of years.

Once again, the festival will take place across two of the city’s well-loved live music venues, the Brudenell Social Club and its neighbour Royal Park Cellars, and as per previous years all profits will go straight to charity. This year’s proceeds will be split between Sheffield Children's Hospital and a new project that's being set up in Laos to help poor villages.

For the full line up visit the Brainwash Festival III website, but as a taster here are some of the bands already booked to play the Brainwash Festival 2008: ¡Forward, Russia! (Friday headliners), Lite (Saturday headliners), Ólafur Arnalds (Sunday headliner), That Fucking Tank, Humanfly, Paul Marshall, Sky Larkin, Vessels, and many many more!

Tickets for all three days are priced at £15, with individual day tickets also available.
