Beat Back

Leeds Industrial Museum

Performance 21 April

One night of live, experimental music.

This event is SOLD OUT - Last Entry is at 8:45pm

Throughout its history Leeds Industrial Museum would have been soundtracked by the rhythms of industrial machinery, humming conversation and choirs of voices.

We have invited Pye Corner Audio, Object Blue and Bambooman to bring the beat back to the mill on April 21st in a very unique event that will see them perform surrounded by the machinery of the industrial revolution.

Making this night even more unique is the fact that Bambooman is producing a special set based on field recordings he is making during his artist residency at the museum.

The DJs Boe&Lx will make you want to get up and dance.
