Mint Festival in Leeds is back for 2021, after having a year away like most of other events in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The event will be taking place on one day only from 10am to 11pm on Saturday 25 September.

Musicians and acts such as Amelie Lens, East End Dubs and Ricardo Villalobos will be performing.

Festival organisers are recommending that attendees arrive before 12-1pm to avoid the queues.

Last entry will be at 8pm, with the bar closing at 10.30pm, food shutting at 10.45pm and music concluding at 11pm.

There will then be an after-party at the Mint Warehouse, with some limited tickets still on sale here.

Also like other festivals organisers will be requiring people to show proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of their arrival, or proof of full vaccination (two doses with the second having been administered at least 14 days before their arrival).
