It's Christmas Eve and we just wanted to wish all our visitors, writers, promoters and venues, and especially to all of the bands and musicians in Leeds...

... a very happy Christmas and a successful 2010!

The year 2009 has been a very busy one for the site and this year we've introduced a number of new features for bands:

- the ability to maintain your band profile, update the biography, website and to change the photograph or band logo.
- the ability to submit your own news articles.
- the ability to upload MP3s to our servers and use Leeds Music Scene to host and deliver your music.

If you're in a Leeds band and want to know how to interact with our site, please contact us.

We've also welcomed new Editors to the site. Steve Elvidge is our resident Live Reviews Editor, Jessica Thornsby covers CD Reviews, and Kate Zezulka and Kathryn Holden are jointly responsible for the Band Interviews section.

We've also introduced features for our visitors, and you can now write and submit articles to our User Articles section.

It's also been a busy year on the social media front and Leeds Music Scene is now 'tweeting' the latest local music updates via our account at Twitter. We have a Facebook page, and a MySpace account.

So please add us and join our network.

The launch and announcement for the line up Leeds Festival will soon take place, so keep your eyes on the site for the latest Leeds 2010 news.

Finally, this year we have extended the Leeds Gig Tickets website and we now offer tickets for all of the major Leeds music venues, such as the O2 Academy, the two Universities, the Cockpit, Brudenell Social Club and many many more.

Thanks for visiting our site, please recommend us to your friends and here's to a very successful 2010 for everyone.
