Quidrophenia, Leeds' increasingly popular bandfest, is returning to Oporto for the fourth time with another amazing line-up set to rock Call Lane on 18th February.
Showcasing the best in the Leeds music scene, Quidrophenia at Oporto is set to be bigger and better than ever before, attracting music lovers from far and wide to witness the best in up and coming Leeds talent and putting Leeds on the music map – where it deserves to be.
Entry is a ‘quid’, hence the name Quidrophenia, and all proceeds go to Cancer Research UK. This charity event, which is the brainchild of Mark Crossley, lead singer in Leeds band Jack Afro, hopes to beat profits from the last three years and raise even more money for charity through the impressive line-up of local music talent.
With over 16 big names from the Leeds music scene including Jack Afro, The Experts, The Angles and Frankie Eisenhower taking to the stage, the foundations of Oporto are set to rock from day to night as the event runs from 12pm to 2am.
Organiser Mark Crossley said, “There is some amazing music talent in Leeds and Quidrophenia is a great way of showcasing it and bringing all the best bands together for a fantastic day to night event.”
Paul Lane, manager of Oporto said, “Quidrophenia has always been a massive success in the past and has raised a lot of money for charity, as well as creating publicity for local Leeds bands. We are predicting further success with Quidrophenia 4 and are proud to host this great event at Oporto. Oporto is renowned for its great music policy and hosting Quidrophenia has allowed us to go a step further and become a great live music venue too.”
Fifty advance tickets are available from Oporto at £5 each, guaranteeing you entry and allowing you to pass in and out as many times during the day as you please without paying again. Ask bar staff for details.
