Harvey Goldsmith in partnership with John Lewis and Leeds City Council are proud to present the inaugural OnRoundhay Festival, taking place on Saturday 17th September at Roundhay Park in Leeds. OnRoundhay is sister to the highly successful OnBlackheath Festival, now in its third year in London, and presents a fantastic day of live music with mouth-watering food and drink experiences along with a fun-filled program of entertainment for all ages.
The Festival marks the opening of the new John Lewis Victoria Gate flagship department store in Leeds.
It will be the first time a major music event has been held on Roundhay Park for over 10 years, the last being Robbie Williams in September 2006 and also a welcome return to Leeds for Harvey Goldsmith, having previously promoted concerts at Roundhay Park featuring Bruce Springsteen, Madonna and The Rolling Stones.
Confirmed to headline are English indie giants James alongside Scottish rock legends Primal Scream and Wolf Alice. A number of local bands complete the line-up presenting what promises to be a fantastic day of live music.
OnRoundhay will also feature an array of exciting attractions including the John Lewis Food Village with the Chef’s Demo Stage full of celebrity chef personalities
Following huge success at OnBlackheath, Puffin Books will be hosting the Family Area at OnRoundhay.
