Bastille to headline Leopallooza 2013

Leopallooza, one of The Guardian’s ‘Best Boutique Festivals’ and winner of ‘South West Festival of 2012’-  Cornish Guardian / Clean Slate Music (readers & critics poll) returns this Summer with three hard-hitting headliners. The chart topping BASTILLE….”Addictive melodies, humble lyrics and a cohesive sound, Bastille are a band where the buzz words couldn't be truer.” –; Party-starters MAN LIKE ME…. “Man Like Me are entertainers… (they) play music to drink lager to, and they do it in a way where even the most prudish hipster can't help but join in.” – and the recently confirmed soul singer JACOB BANKS, fresh from both his showcase on Later…with Jools Holland and his support tour with Emeli Sandé.


The headliners join a lovingly hand-picked, eclectic mix of the very best emerging talent, including: SWISS LIPS, THE SKINTS, BLUE ROSE CODE, JETTA, WET NUNS, FINDLAY, ELIZA & THE BEAR, BEBE BLACK, STRAIGHT LINES AND KEZIA…with plenty more acts to be announced. 

Leopallooza also welcomes Special Guest, Mixmag Editor Nick Decosemo who will be curating acts/DJS in The Treeline: House of Electronic Arts & Dance. There are also many more exciting additions to the Leopallooza weekend yet to be announced.

Leopallooza is also now confirmed as the ONLY UK STOP on the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour, as we host the inaugural ‘JACK GEAR INVITATIONAL’ FMB event, which will see some of the best freestyle mountain bike riders in the world descend on Bude, to ride our challenging custom-built track set within the festival grounds.


Leopallooza is held at: The Wyldes, Lower Exe Farm, Nr Bude, Cornwall, EX22 6UX.
