Yeah! Don't bother travelling miles for your fill of festival yum yums!
Now in its sixth year, Leicester's Summer Sundae festival has grown from a one-day, two-stage event to this year's multi-staged three-day extravaganza.
Hosting what could be described as a slightly more laid-back bill, check out the line-up below for more information. DiS will be there in SHORTS and SKIRTS for review-based fun and you can catch a preview on the site in the week before the festival. Kiss my teeth.
Summer Sundae runs at Leicester's DeMontfort Hall from 11th-13th August, price info is below.
