UK welcomes the hottest, biggest Bollywood singer in town as Mika Singh will headline UK’s biggest Asian music festival 

Birmingham (UK) – Tuesday 26th April 2016 – 85,000 people will head to Victoria Park, Smethwick on 16-17 July for the annual Sandwell & Birmingham Mela 2016 to witness world famous Bollywood singer, Mika Singh. 

The festival, presented by Star Plus, is a weekend extravaganza in the heart of the community that combines live international music performances, stalls, food, arts, community showcases, workshops and a funfair.

After performing in sold out, live shows across India and internationally in Dubai, USA, Canada and Africa, Mika Singh is all set to perform in the UK with his live band for the first time at an outdoor event. With millions of followers on social media, Singh has earned a reputation of performing to packed houses around the globe, and his Mela performance is set to be one of the most anticipated musical events of the year.

He boasts a string of chart topping hits, has been in the industry for more than a decade and has entertained Bollywood pop music lovers with catchy numbers over the years. This tremendously popular artist has received a host of Bollywood accolades, including IIFA 2008 and 2012, Apsara Awards 2013, and Zee Cine Awards 2013 and 2014.

Over 100 artists and groups are set to perform at the event which will be announced soon.

Danny Singh, Event Director of Sandwell & Birmingham Mela, said:

The Mela is months of hard work and dedication by the team. This year we have put in the extra effort and are bringing something really special. Staging Mika Singh will make the Mela even bigger and attract a much diverse audience. Mika is India’s biggest Bollywood singer and he will rock the UK audience!

Star Plus is very pleased to be the presenting sponsor of the Sandwell & Birmingham Mela 2016. Being the UK’s No. 1 Asian TV channel, it is only fitting for Star Plus to be part of the Mela in bringing entertainment in new and innovative formats to our loyal UK audiences.
