This weekend, music lovers will be gathering in Leicester to experience two days of live music in Victoria Park, as the city hosts BBC Radio 2 In The Park. If approved by Leicester City Council, a new two-day music festival with a capacity of 76,000 people could take place in Victoria Park. Festival Republic, a company that has been promoting major music events in the UK for more than 30 years, is organizing the event. The festival is expected to start at 10:30 a.m.
and end at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday and 10 p.m. on Sunday. Festival Republic was founded by Melvin Benn, who has been involved in the creation of some major events such as the first four-day music festival in the UK, the Phoenix Festival, and The Fleadh, the first traveling music festival with annual editions in London, Waterford, New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco.
The festival began as a tribute band event but has since grown to include a showcase of new artists. Glastonbudget is another annual three-day music festival held at Glastonbudget Turnpost Farm in Wymeswold, Leicestershire, England. In the last one, people were still out on the streets celebrating long after the music had finished. The Leicester music festival is sure to be an exciting event for all involved and will provide an opportunity for people to enjoy some great live music and have a great time.
It's important to remember that while it's a fun event, it's also important to be mindful of your surroundings and respect other people's space.
