The 2023 Leeds Festival commences today, and although the primary music lineup begins on Friday, there are still numerous activities happening at the venue this evening.

The Festival Republic Stage tent will start the evening with live music at 7:15pm in the arena. In the campsites, LS21 and Anachronica dance arenas begin at 9pm. Tonight, there’s a complete Piccadilly Party line-up, and a cinema will be set up in the 1Xtra Tent showing Avatar: The Way of Water at midnight.

Below is the complete schedule of stage times, and fortunately, you won’t have to hurry into the Festival Republic tent for shelter from rain. There’s a slim chance of rainfall at Leeds Festival until Friday afternoon, but starting from 5pm tonight, there may even be a few hours of sunshine.
