Win 2 Tickets To Simon Says Festival


More than 100 bands combining the very best local acts and national talent will be taking to the stage this summer at the third Simon Says… festival, De Montfort Hall & Gardens’ home-grown music festival.

The event, which was first staged in 2013 as part of the Hall’s centenary celebrations, transforms the hall and its picturesque grounds into a perfect place to relax with friends and family listen to the sounds of good music, and enjoy great food and drink.

This year’s Simon Says… line-up will also include the summery 70s sounds of Hyde & Beast, bourbon-soaked growl of The Urban Voodoo Machine, and mod / ska anthems from The Moderators. Local Jamaican ska and reggae merchants El Pussycat will also take to the stage, as well as new Leicester band Ex Comets, roots/ reggae from Tann-I Browne and the Ankh Band, and a crowd-pleasing blend of gypsy rhythms and folk storytelling from The Brandy Thieves. Headliners will include indie rockers British Sea Power and electronic/ rock crossover legends Alabama 3 (unplugged).

As well as promising music for every taste, Simon Says… features a selection of thirst-quenching bars selling everything from cocktails to real ales and ciders, varied craft and food stalls, and a children’s activity area for younger visitors.
