Leicester is Happening

Over three weekends in June (15th – 30th), it’s time to come back to the sixties. Experience vintage fairs, live sixties music and events, vinyl records, street food, family fun and more scooters than the set of Quadrophenia. Join the in-crowd for a Summer of Love at REVIVE Festival, Leicester with the Godfathers of cool.

REVIVE Festival brings the past to life. The project is a celebration of sub-cultures – bringing the sights and sounds of bygone eras to the streets of Leicester. In 2019, our focus is on the Mod movement and the 1960s. In the years to come, we’re planning on exploring different counter-cultures in order to preserve the rich, cultural heritage of the UK and the global communities that are linked to our towns.

This year’s festival has snowballed with huge local interest, resulting in many cultural organisations and businesses coming together to create REVIVE. The exhibition, film and associated REVIVE events have gained national press interest – it’s been listed as a ‘2019 must see’ by ArtFund magazine.

You can find out more about the festival and all of the events across the city by visiting the REVIVE Festival website.
