The Long Blondes round off their summer at the Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival

Singer Kate Jackson says 'it's great to be home'

The Long Blondes continued the Yorkshire homecoming at the Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival today (August 25) by rounding off their summer festival circuit on the Main Stage.

Following on from fellow Sheffield band Little Man Tate, Kate Jackson‘s outfit arrived onstage to huge cheers.

The five-piece rolled through a similar set list to their recent festival appearances with new track ‘Guilt’ being thrown into their show which borrowed heavily from their debut ‘Someone To Drive You Home’.

Announcing their return to Yorkshire, singer Kate Jackson, who was wearing a red top, a black and white scarf and blue shades, said: “It is wonderful to be back here. It feels like our home festival because we’re from Sheffield and it is our last one of the summer so we want everyone to have a great time.”

The Long Blondes played:

‘Lust In The Movies’

‘Weekend Without Make Up’


‘Here Comes The Serious Bit’

‘Only Lovers Left Alive’

‘You Could Have Both’

‘Giddy Stratospheres’

‘Once And Never Again’
