New Leeds venue to open
A new arts and music venue will open in Leeds later this month in Canal Mills, a former textile mill. The venue will be run by local events company Sound Channel, one of the firms behind the Hideout Festival in Croatia. The new space plans to stage gigs, clubs, exhibitions, theatrical productions and film screenings. The opening weekend will kick off with two club nights, the first on 28 Sep featuring Simian Mobile Disco, Julio Bashmore and Tensnake, the second the following day being the Leeds date of the Skreamizm tour, headed up by Skream.
