Delphic help kick off Leeds Festival 2009

Manchester band follow Dinosaur Pile-Up on NME/Radio 1 Stage

Delphic helped kick off the Leeds Festival 2009 today (August 28) by playing a lunchtime slot on the NME/Radio 1 Stage.

The Manchester band played a five-song set following Leeds grunge-pop trio Dinosaur Pile-up‘s appearance, which opened action on the stage.

Delphic, wearing matching blue shirts, drew a healthy crowd, keeping chat to a minimum and ending their set with singles ‘This Momentary’ and the pounding ‘Counterpoint’.


Patrick Wolf, The Maccabees and Glasvegas are among the acts up later on the stage, with Gossip set to headline tonight.

Delphic played:

‘Clarion Call’
‘This Momentary’
