Summer Sundae Weekender 08, Leicester

Summer Sundae (also called the Summer Sundae Weekender) is an annual music festival held in Leicester, which focuses on indie, alternative, and local music. The festival began as a one-dayer in 2001 and has grown year on year since then, adding first one and then two campsites, and now involves five stages. It took place between the 8th and 10th August.

9th August, Saturday, rainy.
We were going as guests since Joe's dad was working there in the committee.
Got a free 3-day pass, saved up 95 pounds.

Dengue Fever on Main stage. It's a six-member band from Los Angeles who combine Cambodian pop music and lyrics with psychedelic rock.

Lead Singer Chnom Nimol.

Roisin Murphy (former Moloko singer) on Main stage!
She was just brilliant and her distinctive voice was amazing!
I was standing on the first row in front of the stage
and her sudden changes of stylish costumes and fabulous hats drove me crazy!

Macy Gray, Saturday night headliner.
20mins before her show started, Macy Gray wasn't satisfied with her hair
and demanded a hairstylist, and a pizza.

Her '2' backing singerS.

She ended the night with single ' I try'.
