City of Colours 2016 - bolder, brighter and better!
Organisers of ground-breaking Birmingham street art celebration City of Colours are today announcing a change to the festival which was originally planned for 12th September 2015.
The festival, which has previously attracted celebrated artists such as Inkie, Andy Council and Lucy McLauchlan as well as more than 9,000 visitors into Digbeth’s thriving independent community, is now going to be in June 2016.
The change of date has been a tough call for the organising team.
Becci, co-founder of the festival:
Changing the date hasn’t been an easy decision but it is vital that we get this right. City of Colours is an exciting, innovative and feel-good festival which last year attracted record number of visitors to the Digbeth area. With such success comes increased responsibility around planning, safety, funding and of course getting those extra special artists, events and work-shops so as many people can get involved as possible.
This extra time will allow us to develop City of Colours into a bigger, bolder and better festival. Already we have more than 100 street artists involved – with live illustration battles and work on as many large walls as we can find. There will be music and performances from beat-boxers, B-Boys, cinema screenings, workshops in graffiti art, breakdance, spoken word and so much more. I promise you that the wait will be worth it!
Becci and the team are quick to reassure followers of urban art that they won’t have to wait until June 2016 to get their street art fix. Between now and the festival there will be a number of smaller pop-up events in Digbeth.
