A New Festival is Coming to TownLeave a Comment
A new festival is taking over Leicester and it’s ready to blow everyone away. This new festival goes by the name TDM (which stands for Truly Diverse Music) and it’s allows you to be introduced to world music and to celebrate it all at once.
The festival is taking place inside the Cultural Quarter in Leicester from 26th-28th of May 2017. The first set of tickets are going on sale on Friday 3rd March 2017.
The festival is a great way to hear new music and celebrate something that is Leicester born and bred. The origins of the festival stem from when the TDM coordinator was studying at the De Montfort University and put together a world music event with fellow students, which had the name Tour De Music (TDM). This inspired the coordinator to keep doing this after graduation.
TDM Festival, is powered by Horus Music.
Tickets will be released on Friday 3rd March for 5 of the festival events, to be held across 3 venues. 4 of the events will be hosted by The Exchange and Manhattan34 who will run events back to back across Saturday and Sunday. The 5th event that is hosted by The Peepul Centre, who will close the festival with an India focused event. This is to celebrate the 70th year of independence for India.
More venues and events will be added at a later date, along with line-up announcements through the month of March.
Variety of Genres
What is so special about this festival, is that it isn’t bound to just one genre. The line-up will have a variety of genres such as brass band, reggae, hip-hop, electronic, rock and so much more.
