Day two of the festival is always a party, you’re hyped from day one, maybe a little tired but just stoked for whats to come. Here are our ten to see on Saturday at Bramham Park
MAIN STAGE EAST
Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes: Special guests for Saturday at Leeds are British heavyweights Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes. If there is any act that you need to make sure you don’t miss all weekend, it’s this band. Frank puts all the energy into these sets and will take approximately 30 seconds to be in the crowds faces. Their festival sets are legendary, watch out for guitarist Dean Richardson as he will most likely stand atop of the crowd as he riffs. This band are going to put on the best set of the weekend, do not miss them! Track we’re most looking forward to seeing live: Wild Flowers (for the female only mosh pit)
Circa Waves: After establishing themselves over the past few years as one of the best new indie bands in the UK, Circa Waves are going to prove why in the mid-afternoon slot on the main stage at R&L this year. After bursting onto the scene with huge track T-Shirt Weather, they’ve continued to produce bop after bop. Track we’re most looking forward to seeing live: Fire that Burns
MAIN STAGE WEST
All Time Low: Baltimore natives are no newbies to the festival circuit and have truly established themselves as legends of the pop punk scene. Their jaunty bops alongside their cheeky sense of humour will entertain the masses on Saturday afternoon. They have a career than spans over a decade so expect a set of all killer no filler, here’s hoping for some old classics! Track we’re most looking forward to seeing live: Dear Maria
Glass Animals: You might not think you have heard of this band but we can guarantee that you’ve heard some of their tracks. Biggest hit of theirs to date is Heat Waves and it was on every single radio station in 2021/22, it was even shortlisted for a BRIT award this year. They will bring all the good vibes to the main stage on Saturday and we advise accompanying their set with a cocktail or chilled cider. Track we’re most looking forward to seeing live: Heat Waves
Megan Thee Stallion: Hailing from Houston, three time Grammy award winner Megan Thee Stallion is set to light up the Leeds Festival main stage on Saturday evening. Her performance is set to be completely different from other headline sets as her musical style isn’t your typical “Reading and Leeds”. Her hits like WAP with Cardi B and Savage Remix with Beyonce were some of the biggest hits of the last few years. If her previous performances on stage are anything to go by, expect some moments to be politically charged and a celebration of black women. Track we’re most looking forward to seeing live: Savage
Festival Republic Stage
Witch Fever: Described as a band not be defined by gender or genre Witch Fever are an exciting new band on the heavy scene. Their debut album is out on 21st October 2022 and is full of strong riffs and rhythm. Their sound is heavy with strong themes within the tracks so expect a wild and intense live show to reflect this. Track we’re most looking forward to seeing live: Blessed Be Thy
As It Is: Having gone through a few lineup changes in the last few years it will be great to see this current form of As It Is perform this weekend. Their pop punk/emo sound has evolved over the last couple of years and latest album I Went To Hell And Back was released early this year to a great response from journalists. Track we’re most looking forward to seeing live: The Stigma (Boys Don’t Cry)
BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage
PinkPantheress: With almost 9 million monthly Spotify listeners, success has come fast for PinkPantheress. Her first clip was uploaded to TikTok on Christmas Day last year and since then she has become a popular name on the app. Her music is pop based but she has cited Hayley Williams of Paramore as one of her influences. Having grown up watching Reading and Leeds, we’re sure that PinkPantheress will be putting on one of the performances of the weekend. Track we’re most looking forward to seeing live: Pain
The Alternative Stage
Reginald D Hunter: Legendary comedian Reg D Hunter will be making a welcome return to Bramham Park this weekend. His dry sense of humour twinned with his American humour will leave you belly laughing. If you want a break from the music, do not miss his set.
Ed Gamble: Fresh from his appearances on Taskmaster and his sucessful podcast Off Menu, Ed Gamble is going to put on a storming set at this years Leeds festival. His wicked sense of humour and his love of metal music makes for different coversation but we’re sure you’ll be leaving the tent in stitches after catching his set.
