About

Handmade is an independent festival held in the city of Leicester each year. We started in 2013 in a host of the city’s live music venues and some more unusual spaces, which we transformed to accommodate music, comedy, art, film and photography.

Over the last six years we’ve grown and transformed and we now take over O2 Academy Leicester and the University of Leicester Students Union. Headliners have included Frightened Rabbit, We Are Scientists, Twin Atlantic, Circa Waves, Drenge, Slaves and so many more.
