Leicester’s music scene is buzzing

With live gigs on every night, Leicester is extremely well catered for in terms of music venues.

As an Echo Factory student, you will be encouraged to visit and perform at as many live gigs as you can. Notwithstanding Echo Factory’s own live venue, here is just a small list of music venues that always have something going on:

The Musician | 02 Academy | DeMontfort Hall| Firebug Bar | The Cookie | The Shed | Exchange Bar

Leicestershire also hosts a variety of festivals every year, offering work experience/placements, that our students have access too:

Shambala | Download | Indian Summer Festival| Handmade | Riverside Festival | Leicester City Festival | Glastonbudget |
