Arts in Leicester magazine archive
Rock bands from Leicester
In 2013, Arts in Leicester magazine published a great deal of content about bands (from the local area) that played all styles of rock music, including pop, metal, punk, hip-hop and several other flavours of sound.
Here is a facsimile of the home page for the Bands Section of the magazine from 2013.
At this time, Leicester and Leicestershire had around four hundred working bands. All of them played live at gigs held in the local venues, pubs and festivals.
The magazine had thousands of photographs of bands performing at gigs and festivals.
As our archive project develops, we hope to post extracts from gigs reviews, to provide examples of what the magazine published about the shows and gigs its reporters attended.
