Two of the best cover bands around playing songs from two classic albums in the beautiful setting of Kirkstall Abbey, Leeds.
Kirkstall Festival Future Funding are delighted to announce that this year we will be holding a very special event to help raise much-needed funds to help secure the future of the event.
Two of the most amazing covers bands in the country - Weetwood Mac & Gary Stewart's Graceland have both agreed to play a fundraising event in the Abbey the night before the main festival on Friday 12th July. This will be the FIRST time the two bands have appeared on the same bill, ahead of their hugely anticipated gig at York Barbican on 21st December 2024, so we are naturally extremely excited about this!
You will be able to hear some of the greatest hits from two of the most successful albums in musical history - Rumours and Graceland - together with other tracks from two of the most successful recording artists the world has ever seen.
The Kirkstall Festival has now been a mainstay in the Leeds social calendar since 1981, attracting up to 25,000 people of all ages each year to the picturesque grounds of the 12th Century Kirkstall Abbey.
The 45th annual Kirkstall Festival will take place on Saturday 13th July 2024. The event is a full un-ticketed event which usually attracts around 25,000 people. We aim to provide something for all ages.
The festival is organised by unpaid volunteers - the largest such event in Leeds. All proceeds go to support the Festival. Costs for insurance, marquees, generators, tables, chairs, communications, artists, toilets, toilet rolls, bin bags, skips and signs are going up every year. In 2000 the Festival cost £6,000 to stage. With additional health and safety costs, more events, additional paperwork, licenses, permits, the cost has grown over the years to around £33,000. We receive around £8,000 in grants, sponsorship, and donations (although these are proving harder to come by). The rest has to be raised on the day.
So come on, book your tickets and Go Your Own Way to Graceland whilst at the same time helping secure the future of one of the most important cultural events of our great city.
