Organisers of Leeds 2010 have today revealed the line up for the Alternative Stage, which will once again host the finest names in comedy, performance art, cabaret, film and plenty more to keep you dancing after the main stages have closed for the night.

The headliners of this stage are, as ever, some of the funniest comedians in the world - Emo Philips, Jason Byrne, Stephen K Amos, Kevin Bridges, Russell Kane and Rufus Hound are set to perform at both sites and each bring their inimitable and unique brand of humour.

Between the laughs there will also be some amazing artists appearing including human beatbox supremo Beardyman, the lyrical talents of rappers Rinse, Wariko and Afrikaboy and indie superstar Eddie Argos.

Later in the day, the Alternative Stage shows films for those wanting to relax before the club action starts.

The line up for the BBC Introducing Stage - including the Futuresound 2010 winners - is still to be announced so keep your eyes on the site for the latest Leeds Festival news.
