Leeds Festival 2015 will once again kick off in style this year as Dance To The Radio presents the "Welcome To Leeds Stage" on the Thursday night.

The Leeds-based label will once again be curating their own stage for all festival fans eager to get the weekend of music started early.

Headlining will be Leeds' most raucous sons and veterans of the Main Stage, Pulled Apart by Horses.

Essex rock 'n' rollers THE BOHICAS will also be on hand for a typically energetic set and youthful electronic-tinged four-piece VITAMIN will be on site showing exactly why they're a band to watch out for.

The night will be completed by Leeds guitar thrashing five piece CARNABELLS and Sheffield indie rockers RED FACES.

The "Welcome To Leeds Stage" kicks off Leeds Festival 2015 on Thursday 27th August.
