Handmade is a totally independent music and arts festival that takes place on May bank holiday in the city of Leicester.

Their aim is to find the best new and forward thinking music, comedy, art, film, performance and photography and bring it all together for one weekend.

The festival is curated by some of the city’s best loved independent venues and promoters, all of whom have been involved in putting on events for decades, working tirelessly to bring great things to Leicester. We wanted to create an arts festival the city could really be proud of together.

During the first four years of the festival they have seen sets from Deaf Havana, We Are Scientists, Dry the River, Dutch Uncles, 65daysofstatic, Swim Deep, Los Campesinos!, Lonely The Brave, Slaves, Bo Ningen, And So I Watch You From Afar, Shonen Knife, Eagulls, Honeyblood, Iliketrains, Rolo Tomassi, Nine Black Alps, Three Trapped Tigers, The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Sam Duckworth, Johnny Foreigner, Tangled Hair, Tellison Sky Larkin, Sulk, Maybeshewill and Her Name Is Calla, with comedy performances from Robin Ince, Rob Deering, James Acaster and many more
