Are you a musician? Would you like to hear about opportunities to play local and national festivals? If so...

The award-winning Summer Sundae Weekender is now a firmly established and much-loved part of the East Midlands music calendar. Every August it brings some of the finest musicians from around the world and across the country to the stately grounds of De Montfort Hall in Leicester. The Beat (which you can hear on your BBC local radio station from 6 till 10 every Saturday night) has a long and beautiful relationship with the Summer Sundae.
