The first event at Canvas Yard will kick off in April, with a stellar lineup of events including the iconic FAC51 Hacienda Open Air Event on 30 April and the legendary Garden Party on May 27 and 28.
Acts confirmed for the FAC51 Hacienda Open Air Event include Roger Sanchez, Dimitri from Paris, Todd Terry, Derrick Carter and Graeme Park, and the Garden Party roster is soon to be announced.
Last year’s instalment was the first festival of the season in Leeds and saw the likes of Denis Sulta, Derrick Carter, Eats Everything, HAAi, Hot Since 82, Jon Hopkins, Maribou State, Prospa and Skream spin the decks, attracting partygoers from all across the UK and beyond.
This year’s event will be announced shortly as part of a new series of events held at Canvas Yard – which also includes one from the illustrious house label Defected – and is expected to sell out quickly, so don’t miss out!
Just a quick walk from Leeds Train Station and adjacent to Holbeck Village at City One, it’s the perfect spot to let your hair down and enjoy some of the best music that the country has to offer – all within the largest outdoor venue in the city centre.
As Lydia Eustace, Marketing Director at Moda, says: “The success of last year’s The Garden Party demonstrated a great working partnership and one we were keen to develop. The potential at Canvas Yard is enormous, from health and wellbeing, fitness and sports events to music festivals, art exhibitions, and everything in between – we can’t wait for the event programme that will come forward at Canvas Yard this year and going forward.
New Citizens share the Moda ethos of well-being and community and so it’s fantastic that we can announce the launch of Canvas Yard in association with them.”
