The Leeds Festival will be going on tour this month, bringing all the fun of the August Bank Holiday Weekend Festivals to an indoor venue with no threat of getting wet.

The club nights, hosted in venues across the country, will give fans a taste of the summer with playlists featuring a mix of rock, indie, dance and alternative artists including those already announced to play at the festival.

Held in conjunction with leading club promoters, the nights will offer an audiovisual mix from the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Blink-182, Jake Bugg, Disclosure, The 1975, Courteeners, SBTRKT and more, and will offer festival fans the chance to win a pair of weekend tickets to Reading and Leeds each night.

Leeds Festival is going on tour to Leicester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield and Nottingham before wrapping up at Pet Sounds at the O2 Academy Leeds on Saturday, March 15.

Pet Sounds is Yorkshire’s favourite club night featuring dance floor anthems, classic tracks and cutting edge beats, every Saturday night at Leeds’ O2 Academy. For tickets, visit ticketweb.co.uk

Already announced to be playing the Leeds Festival in 2014 are headliners Arctic Monkeys, with an exclusive festival headline set in England and Wales, and Blink-182 in their only UK shows of 2014, as well as Jake Bugg, Disclosure, The 1975, Courteeners, SBTRKT, Warpaint, Metronomy, Of Mice & Men, Netsky and Annie Mac.

The final main stage headliner, meanwhile, is set to be revealed on Monday evening.
