Leicester's Handmade Festival has announced the first bands for 2018, with IDLES, Protomartyr, and Future Of The Left among the acts confirmed.

Circa Waves, Little Comets, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly., The Orielles, Her's, She Makes War, and Eyre Llew are also among those confirmed for the weekender, which will also have "carefully curated" comedy, art, film, performance, and photography bills.

"This year’s lineup is a big step up for Handmade and an important one for us to take," says co-organiser John Helps. "We want this year’s festival to challenge people’s expectations of what Handmade can be and what we can do with a 'DIY' city festival. We hope people are just as excited about it as we are."

Handmade Festival 2018 takes place 5-6 May at O2 Academy Leicester, the University Of Leicester's Student Union, and the Attenborough Arts Centre. Tickets are on sale now.
