Everything Everything, Portico Quartet, and King Creosote & John Hopkins are amongst the line-up additions for Summer Sundae Weekender.

More acts today confirmed for the Leicester festival include The Pierces, Tom Williams & The Boat, Kissmet, Kitty MacFarlane, Other Lives and loads more.

British alternative rock band Everything Everything's rise to fame was bolstered when they gained a highly coveted spot on the BBC’s Sound of 2010 poll. The bewitching Portico Quartet will also be bringing their exotic, hypnotic sound to the Summer Sundae stage and the much admired King Creosote will be joining musical forces with electronic wizz John Hopkins for a collaboration that is certain to wow our lucky festivalgoers. New Yorker sister-sister outfit The Pierces will also be playing, along with kings of nu-folk Tom Williams and the Boat, the highly original 6 piece funky-bhangra-reggae-rock band that are Kissmet, acoustic folk songstress Kitty MacFarlane, and last but by no means least Oklahoma indie rockers Other Lives.

Summer Sundae Weekender are also proud supporters of local talent, and this year wordsmith Gallery 47 will be joined by hot new band The Paradimes, electronic project Dark Dark Horse, Nottingham natives Fists, Hhymn and Manière des Bohémiens, chilled out electracousticians I am in Love, the dark and bluesy We Three and the Death Rattle and experimental powerpoppers You Slut!

Jon Richardson, Simon Evans and Kerry Gilberts have also been revealed as new additions to the line up for this year’s EFESTIVALS COMEDY TENT brought to you in association with the Leicester Comedy Festival.
