Please note opening week trading has the addition of Monday (12th, Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th April). The rest of the weeks are Thursday to Sunday.
What can people expect?
In a nutshell, epic collaborations with some incredible talent. Temple Arches will see a massive music line-up in 2021 as the summer unfolds. Expect to hear some highly anticipated headliners, including including eclectic mixes from Mr Scruff; disco shenanigans from Horse Meat Disco; Hacienda’s DJ Paulette, who is returning after appearing at last year’s bank holiday Chow Down; Phantasy Sound’s head honcho Erol Alkan; the multi-talented record producer, remixer and Hot Chip founder, Joe Goddard, who will be bringing some experimental beats and Glasgow’s Party Starters, Optimo, who will make an appearance as the music line-up steps up a beat. Bands lined up for later in the year include Mr Wilson’s Second Liners, New York Brass, Band Back Chat Brass Band, and Loud Noises.
Chow Down have been curating food areas with Leeds Indie Food for four years now and this year is the biggest and tastiest food line-up yet. Traders from all across the UK have been invited so expect to see some new faces mixing with popular traders from last year. As well as street food, customers can expect to see chef collaborations later down the line as Temple Arches becomes the hot spot for discovering new food in 2021. From local food heroes Bastards Bistro, Holy Mountain Kitchen, Little Red Food Truck, MorMor and Homeboy Pizza Co, alongside brand new taco slingers Crunched, Wallace and Son, Bomba Paella and so much more.
As the warmer days of summer approach, customers with a sweet tooth can indulge in a brand new dessert van, Scoop, which will be supplying a rotating mix of donuts and brownies, all served with a scoop of ice cream, with vegan options available. Scoop will also be working alongside North Star Coffee on a special filter blend to finish the perfect pairing of coffee and dessert.
