Rocktober time again

It’s not October – it’s Rocktober!

Time in the year again to celebrate rock music in Leicester.  In previous years, Arts in has championed bigging up our local rock scene from 1/10 to 31/10.

Rocktober is all about the people who make live rock music happen – celebrating them and getting them to celebrate themselves.

Here are some press quotes from previous year:

But did you know that Leicester currently has hundreds of local bands and acts hoping to fill those venues? Well, local Arts magazine, Arts in Leicestershire (AiL) plan to shout about this at a national level all month-long. They’re calling it ‘Rocktober’ and every day during October, AiL will promote one of Leicester’s up and coming rock bands. 30 bands have been selected out of 200+ that play their own original rock music and each one will be promoted through the AiL magazine and its national outlets. – 69 degrees magazine, 2010

and from the Leicester Mercury in 2010:

Arts in Leicester and Music in Leicester will be promoting Rocktober for Leicester again this year.
