Transgressive Records to host late night takeover at Reading & Leeds Festival


To celebrate their 15th anniversary, influential indie label Transgressive Records will be hosting a late night takeover on the Alternative Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival 2019.

The Alternative Stage at Reading on Friday will feature house party DJ battles from BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders and indie-rockers Circa Waves, who will be joining the party after their performance on the BBC Radio 1 Stage earlier that day.

Indie veterans Mystery Jets will be in Leeds on the Saturday night of the festival along with psychedelic duo Let’s Eat Grandma and Steel Banglez, who will play on Sunday night. There will also be a Beyonce VS Drake DJ party, hosted by Bless and Superhero DJs, which is not to be missed!

Commenting on the announcement, Transgressive co-founder Toby L said: “We’ve pushed the boat out this year, bringing Transgressive alumni Mystery Jets and Circa Waves along for the weekend, not to mention current stars Let’s Eat Grandma. We’ve also gone big on the Sunday, to ensure the party doesn’t slow down – Steel Banglez is one of the biggest pop crossover names of recent times and will keep things moving right until the bitter end.”
