Simon Said…

We’ve had some great feedback about the festival from customers, staff and volunteers overs the years so we thought we’d share the love…

Let’s do what #SimonSays again next year, great weekend as always, many thanks to all involved… fantastic!!

Well done and a big thank you to the @simonsaysleic and @demontforthall teams for another fantastic weekend. Such a well organised event!

Huge respect to all @simonsaysleic – do head down tomorrow if you can. Such a welcoming, warm festival it’d be criminal not to support it.

My legs hurt as I danced so much – amazing weekend.

Our family can’t wait for next year! In fact we had a tear from our 4 year old this morning when she realised she would have to wait a whole year!!

Brilliant sums up my experience  – a fantastic weekend and an amazing showcase for Leicester’s creative community – everyone involved (on and behind the stages) should be incredibly proud – amazing achievement in these difficult times – peace n love Leicester x

Enjoyable family afternoon @simonsaysleic @demontforthall. Reusable, returnable plastic pint pots excellent way to reduce waste/litter.

Absolutely storming time yesterday @simonsaysleic Some amazing original music and I even got to give a tune or two #HappyDays

Thank you @simonsaysleic! Once again that was a show and weekend to remember. We love you all. Same again next year? …

@demontforthall @simonsaysleic back again for the best weekend of the summer!

Thanks to everyone who helped stage Simon Says, fantastic festival. Great venue, great acts, and outstanding value. See you next year.

Great little festival…fabulous music and good to see that feedback from last year was taken on board….value for money is an understatement. Huge thanks to everyone involved.

@SimonSaysLeic Having the best time ever!

Leicester certainly knows how to put on a good party, and there was certainly a good one yesterday at Simon says. All I could see was a sea of people enjoying their time there, the music was outstanding (bands and artists that performed were exceptional), the organisation of the festival was spot on, even though this is still a smaller festival in comparison to lots of the others out there, this one is my view is pretty special and its in my home town can’t really get any better than that…

@simonsaysleic great event, good bands, but a big well done to polite brilliant bar staff.

All the staff @demontforthall @SimonSaysLeic are brilliant! Making us feel at home. #legends

Once again a fantastic weekend showcasing so much talent, love the relaxed atmosphere, special thanks to all the staff at DMH they were all so friendly and helpful, a credit to you, roll on next year.

@SimonSaysLeic has it all: great bands, great beer, proper toilets and somewhere for a little nap should it all get too much.

Got to love @SimonSaysLeic; Great Music, Sunshine, Beer….

‘Simon Says…’ has become a gem of a festival. Good work! @SimonSaysLeic


Thank you to all the lovely and friendly staff and volunteers @SimonSaysLeic and @demontforthall this weekend.

It’s been the most amazing mix of music in one day I’ve ever known. Loved so many today…never let the rain stop you from enjoying yourselves.

Thank you @SimonSaysLeic, another great years music , showcasing Leicester’s talent #proud

Well after a brilliant two days at Simon Says I can say that the live music scene is well and truely alive in Leicester. The event never seems to dissapoint, as the range of acts that play over the two days are diverse so there is something foe everyone. Massive shout out to all thats involved in making the event run as smooth as it did from production to lighting to sound and all volunteers that clean up and keep everything running to plan. Massive shout out to The Donkey, Firebug and musician for organising the event. Would definitely go again.

Always a blast of a weekend in Leicestershire @simonsaysleic

Ponchos very popular at @SimonSaysLeic
