Handmade Festival announces first artists for 2017
Words: Sam Geary
Twin Atlantic, Frightened Rabbit, Honeyblood, JAWS and Tigercub are among the first names announced for next year's Handmade 2017.
The multi-venue, two-day Leicester festival, which will take place on April 29 - 30 2017, has also named British Sea Power Muncie Girls, Pulled Apart By Horses, Puppy and Idles with more artists still to be confirmed.
“It feels so good to finally get this announcement out into the world," says festival co-organiser John Helps. "Handmade has grown every year since we started it in 2013, but this feels like our biggest step to date as we move into the main room of O2 Academy Leicester, as well as the many other spaces around the Academy and Attenborough Arts Centre. We could not be more excited about the line-up, and this is just a flavour of what you can expect across the two days.”
Tickets are on sale now here.
