Leeds, June 2 2018: an exciting rollcall of the innovative talents and brands will unite for the city’s inaugural Inner City Electronic event.

As we reported in January, Leeds is to host a brand new festival this summer: Inner City Electronic. Taking place throughout the day and night in a number of venues across the city, the event will comprise an exciting variety of talks, workshops, masterclasses and parties. Curated by Ralph Lawson and organised by the team behind Bluedot Festival, Inner City Electronic will be the first event of its kind in Leeds and promises an inspiring 20 hour schedule.

Activities confirmed this week now include a live masterclass from on-point machine melter KiNK and a dub masterclass by decorated producer Prince Fatty. Bill Brewster’s DJ History project will also present a detailed view on the history of the city’s impact on UK electronic music culture and two in-depth interview sessions with Craig Richards (pictured) and Paul Woolford will be hosted by the city’s KMAH Radio co-founder Kristan Caryl.

Other talks include a lesson in dub roots by Leeds’ highly influential soundsystem collective Subdub, promoter insights from some of the city’s most active and successful promoters, a discussion on the future of women in music and an introduction to the Back To Basics Music Academy with local legend Dave Beer. There will also be showcases and hands-on sessions with a range of leading DJ kit companies including Pioneer, Rane, Roland, Akai and Denon.

Aimed at all levels from amateur to pro insider, the full schedule of events is a celebration of all aspects of electronic music culture and can be found on the Inner City Electronic website. The party schedule is looking equally vital, too.
