About Compass Festival
COMPASS FESTIVAL is an extraordinary biennial event of mostly free live artworks across Leeds from world class artists, performance makers and emerging local talent. With the support of numerous city partners we present interactive and engagingly disruptive experiences to arts venues, public spaces, iconic buildings and community cafes.
In 2014, 5,834 people took a step out of their daily routine to engage in some part of the festival programme occurring right where they lived, worked or played. They tell us it was amazing. The beginning of a long relationship with the city, look out for Compass Festival 2016.
