“One of the UK’s top five live bands”The Independent
Whether it’s the eight-piece band playing a blistering heart-on-your-sleeve festival set, collaborating with other artists at international arts festivals across the world, running large scale headline projects for the Yorkshire Festival, or taking 180 people to play on stage at Leeds Arena for a globally televised event, Hope & Social are renowned for making every gig an event. They are a band who throw themselves wholeheartedly into every performance, perfectly bridging the gap between the stage and the audience. Anthemic songs, infectious melodies and a formidable live experience… a major highlight at any festival!

A peoples’ band at heart, they involve their audiences in as many ways as possible; singing on their records, appearing in their videos and by always making their shows life-affirming experiences.
