Acoustic Gardens III

A great day out listening to music in a great location.

Back by popular demand and this year with headliners By The Rivers.

With a knack for sunny melodies and a blue-sky attitude genre, Leicester's own By The Rivers have picked-up praise for their ability to twist pop, soul, reggae and Afrobeat into a wonderfully eclectic and vibrant sound. By The Rivers have just completed a headline UK tour including a huge homecoming gig in the main room at O2 Academy.

The 2015 single 'If They Don’t Know' propelled By The Rivers to new heights following multiple plays and encouragement from the likes of BBC Radio 1 Xtra and BBC 6 Music - the band have had a busy couple of years.

Following a hectic touring schedule across the UK and Europe, the band have had the privilege of supporting some of their own musical icons including The Wailers, Jamie Cullum, Michael Kiwanuka, The Specials, Madness and Fun Lovin Criminals, not to mention headline many of their own, which have included top billings at hugely respected festivals like Shambala, Nozstock and Larmer Tree.

Their live show well and truly honed on the road, it’s no surprise that the band have been hailed as “One of the best live acts in the UK” (BBC Introducing’s Dean Jackson).

By The Rivers will lead the event with a special acoustic set at Belgrave Hall including a days long treat of music. With more acts to be announced, here's the line-up so far:

By The Rivers (Acoustic set)
Paul McLure
Alligatr
Rhett Barrow
Cruel Sister
Ist
Luke Broughton
Dawson Smith
Fullfathom5

Come to see and hear the best singer songwriters from the Midlands in the beautiful setting of Belgrave Hall Gardens. Bring a picnic, relax and listen to superb music. Doors open 11am.

Please note: Bar will be available, so no alcohol will be permitted to bring along to the event. Soft drinks and picnic food are welcome.
