inner city electronic returns to Leeds for another citywide celebration of electronic music and culture on Saturday March 7th 2020. Taking place across a selection of Leeds-based venues and unique locations, the 24hour event will continue to play host to some of electronic music’s biggest talents alongside a diverse programme of emerging artists and local residents.
We can now announce their 2020 venue splits as the city gears up for another 24 hour celebration of electronic music and culture.

The first names announced for the multi-venue event include Peggy Gou, Orbital, Andrew Weatherall & Sean Johnston’s (A Love From Outer Space), Craig Richards, Nicolas Lutz, HAAi, Mr Scruff and many more.
The 2020 edition will see inner city electronic move into the fabric of the city with the addition of iconic venues at Leeds University, Leeds College of Music and The Corn Exchange. Leeds University Refectory has an immense musical history previously playing host to the likes of The Clash, The Rolling Stones and Bob Marley, while the Corn Exchange has only hosted one event since it’s legendary events in the 1990s. Of course independent venues will still heavily feature with focus on the very best spaces the city has to offer including; Wire, Hifi, Distrikt, Sheaf St. and The Warehouse. The festival offers a unique experience to explore the city across a range of events, from intimate locations to big room performances and everything in between.
The festival will also feature a comprehensive daytime programme of conference activity, focused on musical development, music industry, culture and technology, which is yet to be announced. Previous conference guests have included the likes of KiNK, Kelly Lee Owens, Octave One, Craig Richards, Paul Woolford and Midland, alongside a wide range of
