what is this!?!
i know that it's on my birthday and les savy fav are playing...
other than that i'm stumped.
Broken social scene, four tet, los campesinos and les savy fav at leeds uni. 14th november.
It looks brilliant but that Jumbo Records page is the only thing I can find. Don't really want to pay for a ticket then find out it's cancelled or something.
is it an all dayer?
don't want to sound greedy, but i've got to choose between this or the kieran hebden curated warehouse project night....
But if I had to choose I would probably go to WHP for the sheer fact I've seen LC! and Les Savy Fav before and haven't seen anyone at WHP, I live in Manchester and it's cheaper. Both should be excellent nights.
Will be travelling for this. Is it an all day thing is this just one amazing gig?
Its an all dayer as well. Doors at 2pm.
Features.... BEAK>, Abe Vigoda, Eagulls, loops haunt....
my b'day on the 15th too
looks pretty sweet
Broken Social Scene
Les Savy Fav
Esben & The Witch
Honour Before Glory
The Runaround Kids
pretty sick for £20
leeds! leeds! leeds! etc
But how many stages is it across? If its like 4, I worry of MAJOR clashing...
the site says 4 rooms at leeds uni. can't imagine they're all gonna be big rooms, but could be some problem clashes.
could be worth a trip...
I saw a flyer for it a while back that said that Broken Social Scene, Four Tet, Los Campesinos!, Les Savy Fav, & Local Natives were playing, so assumed it was an evening gig with 5 bands - incredible stuff. Now that there's more bands announced, this looks a lot better, though there could be some nasty clashes.
there's obviously sunday's festival as well as the nite before with abe vigoda, beak>, divorce etc. i cant go to the saturday however, as deftones are playing leeds academy, which will be similarly ace :)
6.00PM - 1AM....@ THE BRUDENELL....
Saturday...:- (£11 or £5.50 with ticket for Sunday)

Is a tropical punk rock band based in Los Angeles, California, but are originally from Chino, California; a city in the Inland Empire. They frequently perform at The Smell
Also playing is D/R/U/G/S & EAGULLS from Leeds.
But I couldn't find one about the 2011 festival? I'd like to know whether or not it was 18+ last year - my birthday's November 18th so I'll basically be alright by then anyway, but if there's going to be stringent ID checks I might have to give this one a miss. Which would suck, because Wild Beasts.
It appears to be sold out though, tell me i'm wrong please.
But they were checking ID and giving out different types of wristband which you could just show at the bar if you were 18+, and in my experience the bouncers at the union are generally fairly strict on it. So yeah, depends if you want a drink or not, or if you're going with anyone else over 18 you'll be fine. It wasn't sold out last year- I'm fairly sure I remember tickets available on the door- but it's only the cheaper early bird tickets which are sold out now. Not sure when the standard tickets will be available but can't imagine it'll be long- on the Constellations facebook page a few days back they said a further announcement is coming soon which is quite exciting really. It was a wicked day last year and I don't imagine it'll disappoint this time round!
I think i'll do it this year then. Never been to Leeds either so excitement all round.
Noticed that Battles are playing in Sheffield on the 16th, Constellations is on the 12th. Purely hypothetical at this point, but the logistics seem to make sense for them to play! Though they did play Leeds only a month ago or so (which was excellent might I add) so who knows. Either way, fingers crossed!
Fear of Men and Big Deal, neither of whom i know anything of.
The Wild Beasts, Antlers, Yuck triple bill however, already has my hotel booked.
I'm buying my ticket NOW
I'm so excited by this!
Tickets aren't on sale yet. I am buying the second they are.
which also reveals full line up.
Constellations Festival With Wild Beasts, Yuck, Very Special Guests Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, The Antlers, Three Trapped Tigers, Spectrals, Vondelpark, Braids, Givers, Islet, Big Deal, Fear Of Men
Hyped i am.
