Leeds Festival Fringe is a 7-day grassroots music festival held across several music venues in Leeds in the week prior to Leeds and Reading Festival. It was created in 2010 to showcase local talent before the main festival hits town.

Throughout the week, local promoters, bands, fanzines and on-line music communities all have their "takeover" of Leeds Festival Fringe thus bringing everyone who works all year round to benefit the local music scene together under one banner during one week.

The first year was very successful with over 120 performances, over 400 musicians playing in one week.
