The festival allows local bands to play with outfits from all over the world
Over the last few years, Leeds has become a mecca for live music with thousands of artists gigging in the city, seven days a week.
In that time lots of mini festivals have sprung up to champion the best music around, with Live At Leeds being one of the most sussessful.
2010 will be the fourth year of the event with over 150 bands playing over the Mayday Bank Holiday weekend.
The gigs will take place at 13 venues around the city.
The line-up of venues is as diverse as the band line-up, ranging from the close confines of the Royal Park Cellars, through scene-setting bars like The Faversham and Nation of Shopkeepers through to the air of academia at the Leeds College of Music and the magnificent surroundings of the 18th Century Holy Trinity Church.
Amongst the bands announced so far are folk-poppers Exlovers; Brighton trio Esben & The Witch with their brand of eerie electronica; indie shamblers Lightspeed Champion and homegrown heroes, The Sunshine Underground.
There are plenty of other local bands announced so far, including the highly-rated Middleman, indie-rockers Team Modeliste, garage fiends The Bacchae and post-rock outfit Wonderswan.

Over 40 bands have been confirmed, with around another 110 to be announced in due course. Check the
