On the Edge Festival – 20-22nd July

Jul 2, 2012 by     219 Comments    Posted under: Events

On the Edge is a weekend long arts festival combining theatre, live music, visual art, poetry, dance with market stalls and other creative activities.

A fresh edition to the Leeds cultural landscape, On the Edge aims to bring both new performers and audience members to Leeds; to shine a spotlight on the talent that lies in its varying communities; to fly the flag for the arts and to celebrate this wonderful city.

20th – 22nd July 2012  @Temple.Works.Leeds



On the Edge will have a bit of everything, with acts from the comical to the classical to the downright strange.

West Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra are partnering up with Leeds’ Hip Hop outfit Invizible Circle to provide one of the highlights of this year’s On the Edge festival. The Orchestra, which seeks to “take classical music to people and places other orchestras don’t reach,” will be performing a mixture of Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert as part of the Classical Hip Hop Fusion event.

The concert will headline the On the Edge line-up for Saturday 21st July and will see pieces from wind and string ensembles and a bassoon quartet interspersed with Progressive Rap, Beat Box, and Scratching by young artists from Invizible Circle. There will also be Live Graffiti Arts during the day, with Freestyle and Body Popping adding to what will be a unique cultural experience.

A fresh addition to the Leeds cultural landscape, On the Edge aims to bring both new performers and audience members to Leeds; to highlight the diverse range of upcoming talent rising from our local communities; to fly the flag for the arts; and to celebrate our wonderful city.

On the Edge is looking forward to its second annual festival and seeks to follow in the  footsteps of  Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe in years to come, placing Leeds firmly at the centre of the UK’s arts and culture map. This includes a commitment towards ensuring that the Festival accurately represents the diverse communities living in Leeds, and that those communities are able to play a full and active part in the Festival.

Other highlights include the EdgeStock live music arena, the Furry Mic poetry slam, a cinema space, theatre performances, and of course the festival market.

Confirmed acts include: Ben Lydiat, The Vicars of Skiffle, DJ Booma, Delorean Drivers, Kog Moorcroft, Propane Penny, Rita Payne, What the cat dragged in, Mr Gary C, The Simon Pollard Band, Marc Otway, Peter Marshall And The Lomos, Speed Dinosaurs, Dean Biscuithead, Georgette Hilton, Kayla Kavanagh, LeeSun, The Antics, James Wheale, Pony and Trap, Oriental Dance Company, West Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra, Invizible Circle, Remember the Hurricanes…full line up to follow
