It’s back! Sounds Like THIS Festival brings a packed line-up of cool and unusual events to Leeds – and you can win tickets to the show of your choice.
Sounds Like THIS Festival returns this March with a line-up so good you simply won’t be able to resist it. It’s bigger and better than ever before, promising an eclectic, boundary-pushing programme of cutting edge music and sound art. But this isn’t just a festival for musos, it’s a celebration of music that has something for everyone and we’re giving you the perfect chance to check it out.
Bag two tickets to a show of your choice
If you’re our lucky winner, you can bag two tickets to one of eight unmissable shows – but which one will you choose? Gold.Berg.Werk sees Xenia Pestova Bennett and Karlheinz Essl present a radical reinterpretation of J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Or you can celebrate The Art of Song, which features pieces by some of the best new female composers in the world, performed by Amy Van Walsum and Helene Mathiesen.
Elsewhere, Ligeti Quartet will celebrate their 10th anniversary by playing through the work of the most exciting new composers in the UK. Electronica pioneers Plaid will also be coming to Sounds Like THIS to play a career-spanning audio-visual set which will be one of the festival’s highlights. Or you can head to Unusual Ingredients, an event which explores the incredible relationships between sound and flavour. A delicious menu featuring popping candy, honey and seaweed will be prepared by food artist Catherine Hopkinson. Each dish will then be paired with a piece of music which will amplify its flavours and textures created by sound artists Jacob Thompson-Bell and Adam Martin.
How about a night at the opera? Leeds College of Music’s unique interpretation of Romeo and Her Juliet tells the story of two star-crossed lovers through eight of Handel’s best pieces. Alternatively, catch hip-hop star AWATE as he shows off new tracks from his stint as artist-in-residence at the British Library. Or you can enjoy a night of theatrical performances that shine a light on the modern world in Leo&Hyde’s The Marriage of Kim K, a crazy culture-clash between Kim Kardashian and Mozart.
Enjoy a delicious feed with drinks at Lamb & Flag
Not only will you get a pair of tickets to your chosen event, but we’ll also throw in £50 to spend on food and drink at Lamb & Flag. Warm up for the entertainment with a few pints of Leeds Brewery’s finest or enjoy a bottle of wine as you tuck into their delicious gastropub fare. Start with classics like Chicken Liver Pate or Ham Hock Terrine before you move onto a steaming plate of Beef Bourguignon or a hearty pile of Swaledale Sausage with Creamy Mash.
