Fat White Family, Fucked Up, The Wytches and more announced for Gold Sounds Festival 2015

The Leeds event takes place on May 25

Gold Sounds festival has announced the line-up for this year’s event.

The one-day fest takes place at Leeds University Union on May 25, with the likes of the Fat White Family (pictured above), Fucked Up and The Wytches heading the bill. They’ll be joined by Spanish fourpiece Hinds, Scottish duo Honeyblood, London’s Big Deal, PINS, Happyness, Pity Sex, Colleen Green and Theo Verney.

Tickets for the festival are on sale now.

Last year’s outing saw the likes of Merchandise, Cheatahs, Beverly, Playlounge and more perform.

Meanwhile, Fat White Family recently spoke about their political beliefs and declared that there is currently “a class war being waged” in the UK.

Guitarist Saul Adamczewski told NME that he once attended an EDL march, “not out of support, but because I wanted to see what it was like up close”.

“Those people have genuine grievances – they see traditional working-class English values disappearing, and they’re scared about it,” Adamczewski said of the incident. “But they don’t realise it’s not the Muslims who are fucking them. I’d like to live in a self-governing anarcho-syndicalist community, where everyone helps each other out.”

Frontman Lias Saoudi added: “There’s a class war being waged and we’re all in it regardless of whether you know it or not. When they’re selling off the NHS and leaving people to rot, where do you draw the line? They’re even doing away with crisis loans, because obviously these poor fucking drug addicts looking for £6.56 to make their lives tolerable for a few hours is what’s sinking the economy.”
