Simon Says... we're back!

After the success of last year's sell-out festival, Simon Says... returns to De Montfort Hall and Gardens.

Presented in partnership with three of Leicester's most loved music venues, The Donkey, Firebug and The Musician, the festival is a celebration of local talent with some more nationally-recognised names complementing the line-up.

Headlining the weekend will be The South, featuring members of The Beautiful South and playing many of their original hits.

Alongside them will be new age reggae band By The Rivers, tipped as one of the "five future stars of the Pyramid Stage" by the BBC.

Building on last year's success, this year the festival will have an expanded outdoor area with extra stage, a family area, more food stalls and real ale from event sponsor Hobgoblin.

With the perfect setting of De Montfort Hall's beautiful gardens as well as the iconic hall itself, Simon Says... is the perfect city centre festival with a rural feel. Come and join us for the weekend.
