Leeds summer 2018 starting nice with its brand-new festival named Inner City Electronic.

The event will run across 11 different venues from 12:00 of 02 June 2018 to 08:00 of 03 June  and attendants will have the chance to buy a single wristband pass to join any club they prefer.

Several acts and spaces have already been confirmed with curator Ralph Lawson involving a number of leading names in the industry to perform in the most iconic venues of the city.

Butter Side Up & Mass joined forces to bring an interesting roster of artists to the festival, filling the gap for underground and techno in the line-up.

Uruguayan superstar Nicolas Lutz and the emerging talent Z@p, very requested after his fresh move to Berlin, are headlining the stage at Distrikt Bar, with Harry McCanna, Tristan Da Chuna, Jack Wickham, Butter Side Up, Bobby O’Donnel, Matthew Neequaye, Kepler and Lijero all booked to bring their sounds and vibes.

The festival is also reserving spaces for talks, master classes, workshops & art,  with KiNK and Prince Fatty to teach respectively about live and dub. A conversation with fabric-resident and Houghton curator Craig Richards has been scheduled as well as one with Midland and one with Paul Woolford.
