Late night at Leeds Festival 2023

If you’ve been to Leeds Festival before, you know the drill. First-timers, here’s the low down on after dark programming to keep you entertained until the early hours…

Silent Disco

Ok, so we can’t talk about late night without mentioning our HUGE silent disco announcement. In case you somehow missed it, we’re hosting the WORLD’S BIGGEST silent disco on Sunday night over at Main Stage West. We’re splitting DnB heroes Sigma in two, sending one to Reading to play the first ever (!!) simultaneous R&L set. It’s gonna be the biggest, but quietest, rave we’ve ever seen.


If you’ve been to Leeds before, you’ll be familiar with the iconic LS23 stage, nestled in the trees in the middle of the campsites and surrounded by eurphoric lighting. This year we’re bringing a whole new level of production to the area, which will host sets from female-only DJ collective Girls Don’t Sync, aussie house producer Dom Dolla, the legendary Andy C, Sammy Virji, and loads more.

Possibly the most underrated late night stage, Anachronica is BACK for 2023. Find it in the campsites and step into a Mad Max-esque world, skillfully engineered from recycled materials, everyday objects discarded from previous generations, salvaged and adapted to blast out some of the biggest tunes late into the night. This year’s line up includes BP, Bakey, Dr Dubplate, Silver Bumpa to name a few. Search ‘Anachronica Leeds’ on TikTok to see the vibe.

Piccadilly Party

This year’s Piccadilly Party line up is yet to be an announced, but we know it’s the heart of Leeds nightlife for a lot of you, so make sure to check back for names before you finalise your festival schedule.
