For the first time since 2017, Defected are thrilled to return to Leeds on Sunday 7th May for one night of house. To celebrate, we are holding an exciting giveaway on Instagram – read on for details.

Taking place at the brand new venue Canvas Yard – ‘a new base for creativity and culture’ – we are proud to deliver our unique brand of house party to a fresh location; the 103,000-square-foot venue in the heart of the city is sure to become one of Leeds' epic cultural centres.

The A-list line-up includes headliners Gorgon City, who’s polished party-minded sound has propelled them to new heights year after year since their breakthrough. The festival favourites are joined by Simma Black label-owner Low Steppa, Radio 1 champion of Defected releases Arielle Free, as well as the winner of Defected’s 2022 Unsung Heroes competition Rio Tashan. Rounding out the line-up nicely are Defected Radio Show host Sam Divine, and Hannah Wants - who recently released the music video for her 2022 standout hit ‘Cure My Desire’ featuring Clementine Douglas.

To enter the giveaway, simply follow us on Instagram (@defectedrecords), like the Leeds post, and use this link to sign up for tickets. One lucky winner who has completed all three will be selected to win 4x VIP tickets plus a £200 bar tab to the party!
