Chilled Events have teamed up with Sofar Sounds across the country at other venues in the past, however, this one was super special. As part of a global event putting female talent first, we brought the Sofar Sounds Womens Day celebrations to Leeds, with live, beautifully stripped back performances from Antonia, Allora and Premaura. The girls definitely delivered three very distinct and strong performances, captivating the crowd and filling The LockUp with their amazing voices and musical talents, showcasing the best of female acts from around the city.
Not satisfied with just one event, to celebrate in true Chilled style we collaborated with local all girl DJ collective Moonunit, who took over hosting the evening and carrying the vibes through well into the early hours with an eclectic mix of house, garage, hip hop and pop.
With a packed out venue and a sold out event, the crowd were in agreement that the cool industrial backdrop of The LockUp was the perfect place to host the event. Along with Sofar Sounds, we were able to showcase some of Leeds’ finest musical talent, celebrate female talent for International Women’s Day and introduce The LockUp as one of the city’s most exciting independent new music venues.
