Onstage: 10:00pm

Hope & Social are a six-piece (plus) rock band based in Leeds, England. Formed in 2008 they have released 3 albums in under three years and have toured extensively. Hope and Social are characterised by their "Pay What You Want" approach to their music. In July 2008, Hope & Social released their first EP with a full-length album to follow. On 7 October 2008, the band appeared on Channel M, a TV station based in Manchester. On 3 June 2009, the band released their new album, Architect of this Church. The album was in the making for 2 years and took over 16000 man hours to record. It was made available to purchase on their website, for however much the purchaser thinks it is worth. In 2009 the band performed twice at Glastonbury as finalists in Glastonbury's Emerging Talent Competition. In April 2010, Hope and Social released April, their second full-length album and the first to feature fully the new line-up of the band. In May 2011, Hope and Social's third studio album Sleep Sound was released and immediately rose to No.1 on bandcamp.com. In March 2012 the band released an album Cotton Wool & Knotted Wood, recorded live, and their fourth studio album All Our Dancing Days was released on 13 November 2012. The band kicked off the opening ceremony for the 2014 Tour de France at Leeds Arena, performing with The Band Anyone Can Join, consisting of 100 local people.
