Sounds Of The City 2021 launches in Leeds with IDLES, Foals, DMA’s

Concert series Sounds Of The City is taking over Leeds Millennium Square in July 2021 for a run of outdoor headline shows featuring IDLES, FOALS and DMA’S.

Sounds Of The City began in Manchester in 2013, and 2021 sees the event expand over the Pennines to Leeds Millennium Square – the outdoor live entertainment venue in the heart of the city which is already a firm favourite amongst Yorkshire gig goers.


IDLES will take over Leeds Millennium Square on Thursday 8th July 2021 for a very special headline show. The band have just celebrated their first number one after their much-anticipated third album “Ultra Mono” topped the Official UK Albums Chart. They’ll be joined by special guests The Big Moon.

Foals will headline the Square on Friday 9th July 2021, following the biggest headline tour of their career next year. Foals released their critically acclaimed album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2’ in 2019, the most ambitious project of their career. 

On Saturday 10th July 2021, Sydney’s DMA’S will headline Leeds Millennium Square next July and will be joined by special guests The Lathums.

Tickets go on sale Friday 16th October at 10am.
