inner city electronic returns to Leeds next week for another celebration of beeps, bleeps and cutting-edge culture.

It will run for 24 hours, cramming as much music as it can into the city’s most iconic venues and featuring a stellar line-up including Nina Kraviz, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Ben UFO, Nightmares on Wax and Octave One.

The music festival will run alongside a daytime programme of talks and workshops focused on musical development, the business of music-making, plus the culture and technology which drives it.

Highlights include Bluedot Present: Delia Derbyshire – Godmother of Electronic Music with Caro C and How They Made the Dr Who Theme with current Radiophonic Workshop member Mark Ayres. Octave One will also offer a live masterclass while rising Welsh electronic producer Kelly Lee Owens will deliver the keynote.
