Leeds’ premier multi-arts venue announces its upcoming music schedule including nights from Wax:On, Rebel Rave & Mr Scruff
After it’s successful launch last September as well as a fantastic winter season, Leeds’ most exciting multi-arts venue is back to reveal its plans for the Spring which is promising to be its best season yet. Having previously showcased talents from a spectrum of electronic music genres in addition to working with some of the best club nights the UK has to offer, Canal Mills rejoices the return of artists such as Joy Orbison, Maya Jane Coles and Mr Scruff, as well as welcoming talents like Prins Thomas, Damian Lazarus and John Talabot.
To begin, Canal Mills will put on a bank holiday weekend of epic proportions with friends Wax:On and mono_cult, staging two indoor stages and one outdoor courtyard to produce 14 hours of uninterupted music. Also on the bill for Spring is a night from bass music favourites Metropolis, a very special stop from the international 10 Year’s of Rebel Rave tour and Manchester’s favourite eccentric tea-party host Mr Scruff.
With the warmer months imminent Canal Mills unique industrial setting, outdoor space and original programming, will no doubt provide a memorable sound, visual and atmospheric experience to all those that grace its floors.

With our first season of events more than exceeding expectations, we felt it was time to show what we can really do for one very special party alongside our good friends Wax:On & mono_cult. Expect no less than 14 hours of music, 2 indoor stages, 1 courtyard arena, the most delightful food on offer and a whole host of good times to be had.

After the overwhelming response of our sell out SBTRKT show back in November, we felt it was only right to invite him back again this Spring for yet another huge show. This time he’s accompanied by some of the UKs finest up and coming talent from the house music realm, and we quite simply cannot wait.
