Organisers of Live at Leeds were celebrating this week after winning a national UK Festival Award for Best Metropolitan Festival. The star-studded ceremony too place on Monday evening at London's Roundhouse and was presented by Huey Morgan.

This year saw the Live at Leeds festival grow in statue and beat off competition from Sheffield's Tramlines, Slam Dunk, Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape and The Whitby Goth Weekend to take the award.

Speaking about the UK Festival Award win, Colin Oliver (Founder of Live at Leeds and Director at Futuresound Events) said, "This is a fantastic way to round off 2014. Live at Leeds has been a huge challenge for us to put together over past 8 years but it is worth it when you get recognition from the industry like this and when you see bands we have hosted take off internationally."

"Live at Leeds is one of the most satisfying and rewarding things we do at Futuresound Events. Getting this Award is a credit to the hard work of the team at Live At Leeds and to all the people who have been involved over the years, particularly within the city."
