Summer Sundae Weekender

Following the news that the No Direction Home festival will take a year off in 2013, the longer running Summer Sundae event in Leicester has announced that it will do the same.

In a statement on the event’s website, organisers said: “After much consideration we have decided it’s best for Summer Sundae Weekender to take a year off and as such there will be no Summer Sundae at De Montfort Hall in 2013″.

They continued: “We have taken this decision against the backdrop of a very difficult year for festivals in 2012. The Olympics, the recession and the weather have created a perfect storm leaving many independent festivals struggling to survive. We feel it’s a good idea to take the next year to look at different models and fresh ideas to bring the festival back for 2014 and beyond”.
