Corinne was one of a host of new acts announced including Sheffield band Slow Club and Shura, who went down a storm at last year’s Leeds Festival.

Booker Aaron Snowdon said: “This announcement has a special Leeds feel, with some of the very best local bands taking the stage and announcing a Leeds legend, Corinne Bailey Rae.”
