Thurston Moore and We Were Promised Jetpacks among Live At Leeds 2015 line-up.
Every year in Leeds, the May Bank Holiday marks the return of a whole bunch of great gigs for the annual Live At Leeds festival.

Thurston Moore will play Live At Leeds 2015
Last year's festival brought in a number of popular acts including Clean Bandit, George Ezra, Kodaline, Little Matador and Pulled Apart By Horses - a line-up which helped win the festival its 'Best Metropolitan Festival' accolade, beating Brighton's popular 'Great Escape' and pop-punk festival 'Slam Dunk' to the top spot.

Oxford's Stornoway return to the fold this spring with their self-produced, semi-concept sophomore album, 'Tales From Terra Firma.'
Composed in a campervan and recorded in their parents' garage, 'Tales' is a record full of wistful charm and maritime melancholy that beautifully captures Stornoway's unique blend of Cotswold Americana.
Opting to self-produce can be a risky business, but in 'Tales' we discover a collection of songs that are lyrically more thoughtful and instrumentally more sophisticated than its 2010 predecessor 'Beachcomber's Windowsill'. Gone are the carefree musings of a love-struck Oxford undergraduate and in their place we find vocalist and lyricist Brian Briggs all grown-up and dealing with bigger issues such as death, marriage and metaphorical albatrosses.

Winning the hearts of thousands with their fresh folk pop, Contactmusic.com were happy to catch up with singer and guitarist Brian Briggs by the Park Stage at Worthy Farm. He chatted about the band's debut album, their formation and his epic journey to the festival - it was lucky he made it at all after his van broke down and he spent 33 hours on an industrial estate!
