Most importantly we aim to make the festival an annual highlight for artists and fans alike. We're proud to be associated with The Americana Music Association UK who will be helping us on this quest.

Here's a little more on our venues & ticket info...

Holy Trinity Church - The 300 year old, Grade I listed church and arts center hidden in plain sight on Boar Lane in the city center. Not only boasting stunning architecture but also phenomenal acoustics.

Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen – A relatively new three floor bar & music venue at the forefront of new music in the city & the UK's exploding Street Food movement.

Oporto – Small but infamous award winning venue & bar in the city center. The heart of Dead Young Records since it’s inception & home to the long running Gaslight Club acoustic night & many a hazy evening.

Whitelocks - Leeds' oldest pub, at 299 years old it predates America, let alone Americana. We'll be taking over their second bar to host films, talks and pop ups in the very place John Betjeman described as ‘the very heart of Leeds’.
