Handmade does not accept applications to play the festival.


The festival is run by a team of people who promote shows in Leicester and beyond all year round. We are constantly aware of acts we like and want to bring to the festival, and usually have a wish list as long as our arm even before the last years festival is over.

The best thing you can do to get on Handmade's line-up is to play shows in the city for us (The Cookie, Firebug and The Robot Needs Home Collective) through the rest of the year. If you're doing stuff at a local or national level and we're in to what you're doing, eventually (and we say eventually because there are many less slots on the festival than there are bands we love) we'll be in touch.
