With the announcements now coming through for the summer festivals across the country, a few Leeds bands have caught the eye. Duels have been confirmed for V Festival in Staffordshire and Chelmsford, and will join Kaiser Chiefs in the line up for the weekend of the 20/21 August.

As well as V Festival, Kaiser Chiefs - who release a new single, "Everyday I Love You Less & Less" on 16th May - are also listed to play at Glastonbury and T In The Park.

Finally, whilst the line up for Reading/Leeds is being revealed slowly, six Leeds bands will make their appearance this year at Bramham Park via the annual Futuresound competition. See here for more details, applications to be submitted by 22nd April.
