In the five years that Leicester’s De Monfort Hall has been hosting it’s ever-growing annual festival, it has seen an array of top names perform and is now firmly established as one of the main events on the UK music festival calendar. Last year’s line-up saw Super Furry Animals, Air, Kasabian, Lambchop, Ordinary Boys, Dogs Die In Hot Cars, Ed Harcourt, Kings Of Convenience and Amy Winehouse among others, and the 2003 line-up saw Emmylou Harris and friends perform a concert for her landmine free world charity, Mr Scruff, Gotan Project, Ian McCulloch, Chumbawamba, Ralph Myerz, Aqualung, Pink Grease and right at the bottom of Sunday’s main stage bill were future million sellers Keane.
Once again Britain’s most dynamic digital radio station, BBC 6 MUSIC, have thrown their support behind the festival, confirming that they will be transmitting live from the event across the weekend.
Lemon Jelly are the latest band to confirm their appearance, headlining the main stage on Saturday, along with Mylo headlining the indoor stage on the same night. There’s also been some names announced for the Musician Stage – these include Trashcan Sinatras, Rico Rodriguez & The Pressure Tennets, Juliet Turner Trio, Jason Ringenberg, Mojo Hand, Redland Palomino Co, Ethan Daniel Davidson and The Duhks.
