The team behind " Live at Leeds" , Futuresound Events is celebrating after winning a national UK Festival Award for Best Metropolitan Festival.

Live at Leeds festival

The star-studded ceremony last night at London’s Roundhouse was presented by Huey Morgan.

The Live at Leeds festival beat off competition from Sheffield's Tramlines, Slam Dunk, Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape and The Whitby Goth Weekend to take the award.

“This is a fantastic way to round off 2014. Live at Leeds has been a huge challenge for us to put together over past 8 years but it is worth it when you get recognition from the industry like this and when you see bands we have hosted take off internationally.

"LAL is one of the most satisfying and rewarding things we do at Futuresound Events.

"Getting this Award is a credit to the hard work of the team at Live At Leeds and to all the people who have been involved over the years, particularly within the city.”

– Colin Oliver, Founder of Live at Leeds
