De Montfort Hall and Gardens, Leicester; August 12-15

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Leicester’s premier ice-cream themed musical event, chart-topping grime mite Tinchy Stryder will be coming to town! If you’ve yet to be convinced of the Tinch's charms, though, Los Campesinos!, Mumford & Sons and Goldheart Assembly will be putting their indie cherries on top. Plus, there’s a wealth of bands whose names start with ‘F’: Sunderland’s lovable Futureheads, Selkirk’s lovelorn Frightened Rabbit and the mighty Fall. Is it a conspiracy? Better ask Matt Bellamy; all we know is, it’s going to be a hell of a lot of sweet-toothed fun.
