About SOUnds like this 2018


Taking place from 12 – 23 March 2018 across six venues in Leeds, Sounds Like THIS is an eclectic, diverse and boundary-pushing festival. We present cutting edge music, sound art and visual installations by leading artists and emerging talent working across a broad range of disciplines.

Sounds Like THIS gives a voice to new and exciting music which is traditionally under-represented in the mainstream, presenting work which is intriguing, engaging and challenging. Featured works are predominantly new or created in last five years.

With funding from Arts Council England Grants for the Arts for our 2018 programme, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring a line-up of diverse and eclectic ground-breaking artists to Leeds.

The Sounds Human conference forms a key part of the festival. This event will celebrate and evaluate the personal and social benefits of musical engagement, and explore how this forms a vital part of what it means to be human.   

Sounds Like THIS looks to the future of music, and celebrates artists who take risks and push boundaries.
