Music Market

October 12, 2011

Some of the county’s most talented musicians will descend upon Leicester Market this weekend, as the Leicester landmark hosts an exclusive outdoor music festival.

Bands such as Charlie and the Martyrs, The Splitters and Counteraction Band will be forming part of the Love Music Hate Racism event at the Europe’s biggest outdoor market on Sunday 16th October, which will incorporate various aspects to create a fantastic day.

Performances will be taking place over the course of the day on the festival’s main live stage, powered by the Biscuit Tin Sound System, which will be situated at Market Corner, with food stalls, music stalls and much more also trading during the course of the afternoon and evening.

Running alongside the Love Music Hate Racism festival will be some superb vintage stalls, organised by the UK’s leading vintage fair – Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair. The vintage fair will have fashion, arts, crafts and jewellery available, whilst providing a fantastic backdrop to the day’s live music.

Other artists also confirmed include Great Imitation, Echo Marley, Slick Don and Paul Melting Pot.

Orange Tree will also be running a bar at Leicester Market for the music festival, which runs from 2:00pm until 8:00pm.

Joe Harkin, Leicester Market’s Development Manager said:

“I am very excited about Sunday, as it marks a monumental day for the market. I believe this festival will open a new chapter for the kind of diverse events the market can be used for in the future.”

Entry to the event is open to people of all ages and is absolutely free of charge!
