Incoming festivals...

Birmingham and the region is not short of a festival or two.

Below are some of the best food, music and arts festivals that you can catch over the coming weeks…

To get the festivities underway earlier and to take the hassle out of festival parking, we recommend leaving your car at home and using West Midlands Railway or, if travelling up from London, London Northwestern to get to these events.   With great value off-peak fares, you can spend those saved pennies on more beers, a festival t-shirt? How about a natty glitter beard?

 

Moseley Folk Festival – 31 August-2 September
Nearest station - Birmingham New Street  + 50 or 35 bus

Set in the leafy surrounds of Moseley Park, this year’s three-day festival is headlined by Levellers, Teenage Fanclub and Nick Mulvey.

Bring your folding chairs and blankets, relax and make yourselves comfortable... but equally for those of you who prefer a more energetic affair, fear not, as this festival has an eclectic bill of traditional, contemporary and experimental folk!

Once again, the folk musicians will spill out of the 11-acre park into some of Moseley’s finest pubs, generating a fantastic atmosphere throughout the village.

 

Coventry Godiva Festival - 31 August-2 September
Nearest station:  Earlsdon Avenue - 5 mins walk

 

The UK’s biggest free family music festival is now entering its 20th year. Based in the city’s historic War Memorial Park, the three-day event offers great live music, family entertainment, food and drink, a craft village, fun fair and zero naked noblewoman on horses.

Jake Bugg has been announced as this year’s Friday night headliner, and joins Gabrielle, Jonas Blue and Professor Green amongst others.  And, if you fancy talking to the stage yourself, sign up for the popular Battle of the Bands competition - Godiva Calling.

If you're coming up from London use London Northwestern Railway and get the festivities underway earlier.

 

Shiiine On One Day Festival – 8 September
Nearest station:  Birmingham International - 5 mins walk

Aaahh the 90’s - a golden time for anyone who remembers them; Gladiators (Jet in particular), Tamagotchis, Nintendo Game Boys, Pogs, renting videos from Blockbuster, Snake on your Nokia, recording the radio charts on cassette tapes – ok ok, maybe it wasn’t all that, but it was unquestionably a golden era of music, with Dance, Indie and Britpop at the fore.

Shiiine On Festival features 20 iconic bands from the era including a full festival show from dance pioneers Orbital, performances from indie heroes Shed Seven and the Happy Mondays, plus sets from Embrace, Cast, Black Grape and The Wedding Present across four stages.

Your ticket also includes entry to two after show parties hosted by the Hacienda. 

 

Taps Festival - 20-22 September
Nearest station:  Birmingham New Street - 5 mins walk

No, no, no, this isn’t a B&Q event about mixers, single levers and monoblocs but a much more interesting three-day celebration of beer, street food and music.

Co-hosted by Birmingham street food tsars Digbeth Dining Club and Craft Beer Rising the event will showcase over 175 independent beer & cider factories – hic!

Some big names in the music industry will also be playing including Don Letts, Norman Jay and Massive Attack’s Daddy G – more guest DJ’s are to be unveiled in the coming weeks – to see who they are, and to book tickets (starting from £8) click here right this instant…
