PROGRAMMING & PRODUCTION

We are essentially music heads. If we are not putting on our own gigs we are at someone else's, following leads for new bands, listening to music, talking about it or reading about it. If a venue is the body then the artists are the blood that brings everything to life. Leyline programs over 250 bands and DJs each year for our clubs nights, festivals and events working primarily with guitar based bands from indie and alternative to punk and industrial, breaks and drum n bass!

Leyline has developed key live production skills in sound and stage management to lighting and backstage making sure that all our artists have exactly what they need when they play a Leyline gig. Below are 2 prime examples of our capability.

THE INSOMNIACS BALL - SEONE LONDON (13th April 2006)
London’s first ever all-night indoor live music festival. Conceived as an indoor indie-rave crossover festival allowing music fans to see the cream of the UK’s indie bands under one roof. Headlined by British Sea Power, Art Brut, Dogs, Mando Diao, White Rose Movement as part of an extravaganza of 150 performing artists, the event was an instant sell out and won critical acclaim across the board. Spread over five arenas, we are already programming the next festival on November 25th. Future plans include Insomniacs Ball touring and hosting arenas UK and international festivals in 2007.

THE COMMON GROUND FESTIVAL
The Common Ground is Leyline’s to successful festival brand having been first staged to 11,000 people on Clapham Common in July 2004. It made an immediate impact with the public, press and media and was heralded as London’s largest alternative music festival.

The Common Ground’s concept is far reaching, capturing both the imagination of the modern festival goers through innovative programming, creating an environment where diverse cultural, lifestyles and musical tastes meet. Thirty something parents are brought back in the loop through The Common Ground’s encompassing and sophisticated approach.

On stage there is a synergy between today’s artists and their major influences, whilst fans off stage come together to witness an exciting musical histoire that is able to integrate and sit comfortably within the busy festival calendar, not just in London, but anywhere in the UK and internationally, all on ‘The Common Ground’

The Common Ground is to be held twice in 2007 at separate locations.
