A Hand-crafted, independent music festival show-casing some of the best new music in the UK, all from a lush Cornish valley near the sea. The Leopallooza music festival is set to be a belter once again, and a ticket can be yours for the paltry price of £70.
Fenech-Soler: Few bands can match the live performance Fenech-Soler put on at Leopallooza in 2012. Masters of their craft, they deliver the all-encompassing, end-of-the-night euphoria that should be bottled and sold. A hybrid of summery indie, big dance-inflected melodies, instantaneous hooks with pounding bass lines - the house party soundtrack is in their genes. We welcome them back into the Saturday night headline slot that their live show truly deserves.
Foxes: Grammy Award-winning Louisa Rose Allen (aka Foxes) is set to grace the main stage at Leopallooza, bringing her hi-energy, synth-pop sound down to the field. Hits such as Let Go For Tonight, Youth and her recent, critically-acclaimed cover of Pharrell’s Happy in the Radio 1 Live Lounge have seen her leap past her contemporaries and achieve high standing in the current UK pop scene. With her hotly anticipated debut album out in May, we’re excited to be able to bring this rising star down to Cornwall before she takes on the world.
Brother & Bones: If there is a band that best personifies how exciting the Westcountry music scene is right now – Brother & Bones is it. After recently selling out the Princess Pavilions in Falmouth, Leopallooza is proud to announce that we’ll be the only festival performance from the band in Cornwall this summer.
The Other Tribe: “Skirts is the kind of thing that makes you want to daub your body with something that glows in the dark and do unspeakably a-rhythmic things in a muddy wood at the side of a festival field at night before returning to the office on Monday with a terrible hangover and tiny flecks of luminous paint under your fingernails.” – Paul Lester, The Guardian - We here at Leopallooza totally agree with Paul.

Like a lot of the waves in the edit, this one is a grower. Dusty Payne and Yadin Nicol make light work of things you'd sail on by.
