For the second year running, Leeds-based record label Dance To The Radio will curate the opening night at Leeds Festival 2008. Following last year’s successful event headlined by ¡Forward, Russia! the label, home to The Pigeon Detectives, have brought together some of the most exciting new talent from the north.

Headlining the night will be recent Dance To The Radio signings Grammatics, fresh from recording their debut album. Also playing the night are Dinosaur Pile-up, Doncaster band The Wallbirds, Scotland’s finest Broken Records and Leeds band Wintermute.

The night will be rounded off with DTTR DJs.

Recently tipped by The Sunday Times, Grammatics have made available a free track. Download ‘New Franchise’ from their official website
