Hope & Social

“A big sound from this impressive outfit. Inspired, anthemic, great” ~ Q Magazine

Hailing from the far-flung corners of the UK but based in Leeds, Hope & Social are a bit like a northern E-Street Band, meets Arcade Fire, meets The Faces, meets Dexys Midnight Runners!

Eight years, five albums, thousands of gigs, Glastonbury, Leeds Arena, and many a pub and front room up and down the country – Hope & Social do the things every band does. But then so much more… They’re a people band at heart; they like to involve people whether singing on their records, being in their videos, or making their events life changing and affirming experiences (Hope & Social led a hugely successful music-making project in Shoreham in 2016 followed by a sell-out show).

Described as “one of the UK’s top five live bands” (The Independent), don’t miss their  return to Ropetackle with their energetic, upbeat sonic sound, promising a night of joyful, dance-along music.
