HMLTD, Goat Girl and Dead Pretties lead final wave of names for Handmade 2017

The Leicester bash now has a Friday programme to boot - now that’s a weekend of fun times if we ever saw one
Already boasting a storming lineup of heavy-hitters, Handmade Festival have announced a string of new names for the bill, with HMLTD, Goat Girl and Dead Pretties leading the fresh charge.

The names come with the news of a brand new Friday programme of shows, headed up by HMLTD and spanning across the city – giving festival-goers an extra 24 hours of shenanigans with some bloody amazing bands. These include the aforementioned Dead Pretties, Husky Loops, Neon Waltz, Haiku Salut and many more!

Across the Saturday and Sunday, new additions include Haus, Peaness and Lea Porcelain – joining a stacked bill headlined by Twin Atlantic and Frightened Rabbit, with further slots from the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, Honeyblood, Jaws, Superfood, Cabbage, Shame, Get Inuit, Willie J Healy and tons more.

Dork will be along for the ride, so we expect to see each and every one of you down the front from the get-go. Agreed? Smashing.

Tickets for the festival are on sale now, starting from £40 for the weekend activities.
