This year's City Festival in Leicester is a combination of several other events which were previously held separately, as the city council seeks to save tens of thousands of pounds.
The festival budget this year has been cut to £308,500 from £366,500 in 2012.
Next year, the budget will be reduced even more, down to £288,500.
