Last year, after an impressive mainstage performance at Reading Festival, Pulled Apart By Horses had to cancel their set at the sister leg of the event.
“Sadly we have had to pull our set at Leeds Festival today,” came the news from the band “Rob collapsed due to illness around 1 hour before we were due on stage which meant he was unable to perform. He is in very capable hands right now and being well looked after. We’re massively sorry about being unable to perform in our home town and we’ll be back very soon.”
Fortunately Rob recovered and, true to their word, Pulled Apart By Horses are returning to Leeds Festival to headline the Welcome To Leeds Stage.
Taking place on Thursday the Welcome To Leeds Stage is curated by Leeds-based record label Dance To The Radio and will feature performances from The Bohicas, Vitamin, Carnabells and Redfaces before Pulled Apart By Horses’ return.
Rob has written an open letter to Leeds Festival, which you can read below.
