Weekends away 2014: Handmade Festival

WHAT? Like a multi-venue event but more so, putting the outer reaches into intriguing spaces around a major city centre

WHERE? A number of central Leicester venues

WHEN? 2nd-4th May

WHY? With stages supported by 2000 Trees, ArcTanGent, Big Scary Monsters and Alcopop! there's a decent post-hardcore/instrumental/post-rock leaning to the bill, but not without some intriguing deviations. Unlike most city festivals this also exploits non-standard locations, with stages in vintage halls and galleries

HOW? £33 for the weekend

FRIDAY: And So I Watch You From Afar, Three Trapped Tigers, Her Name Is Calla, Grace Petrie, FTSE, Peter Wyeth

SATURDAY: Shonen Knife, Haiku Salut, We Three And The Death Rattle, Katie Malco, Sisterland, TE Morris, Weikie, Tellison, Tangled Hair, Woahnows, Brawlers, Feedback Voice

SUNDAY: I LIKE TRAINS, Dry The River, Dark Dark Horse, VerseChorusVerse
