Popworld Festival – A UK First: Coming to Leeds

The first ever Popworld Festival is coming to Millennium Square Leeds on Saturday 6th August 2022.

Leeds will welcome Peter Andre, 5ive, Fatman Scoop, S Club and Cheeky Girls. Artists with 10 No.1 singles – and the latest addition to the lineup is Whigfield with her hit 90s anthem ‘Saturday Night’.


Join the anticipated 5,000 people in the Square from 5.30 p.m. and make some noise with the best of the 90s and early noughties pop, whether it’s a nostalgic trip for you or you just love the cheesy tunes and a dance!

DJ Paul Chuckle will be spinning some classic anthems in his non-stop set.

Organiser from Stonegate Group, Robert Smith, says: “Finally, after 3 years in the making, we’re ecstatic that the Popworld Festival is 100% going ahead this year. We can’t wait to give everyone an amazing party and unbelievable Popworld experience. We’re now 90% sold out of tickets and just want to remind everyone to get there asap to avoid disappointment. We’ll see you all there.”

Whilst tier one and two tickets have all sold out, the last few tier three tickets are still available to buy, priced at £34.95. The team behind the Festival has also introduced a VIP ticket, priced at £64.95 which includes priority seating, a chance to meet the artists and a goody bag from sponsor, Ciroc Vodka.

The one-day festival will run until 11pm, but the night doesn’t stop there, with official Popworld Festival after-parties hosted at Popworld Lower Briggate, Popworld Cookridge Street and Walkabout, Woodhouse Lane – keeping the party going until the early hours.
