With the above names all joining an already fantastic line-up which boasts Circa Waves, Drenge, Idles, Future of the Left, Little Comets, The Big Moon and many more, it’s shaping up to be a fantastic weekend at Leicester’s O2 Academy.
If you have an interest in the music industry, through work, study or just keen to learn more then you’ll also be delighted to know that Handmade will also be introducing The Handmade Conference for the first time this year. Taking place on the Friday before the festival itself, Handmade will be working with some of the festivals partners, including music licensing organisation PPL, to put together a programme of talks and discussions about the music industry and more. The day will be a valuable experience to young people, new bands and artists, those already pursuing a career in the industry and anyone with an interest in taking a look behind the scenes. Futher details of the programme will be released very soon. Entry is completely free but places will be on a first come first serve basis.
