Gigbeth, the three day free music festival in Digbeth (see what they did there?), takes place on 1-3 November this year based around the Sanctuary, Barfly, Custard Factory and Glee Club amongst other venues.
Bands and musicians from all genres are welcome to apply to play and will be paid at least Musicians’ Union rates. Applications must be in by 27th April though they will start looking at them in early March. Here are the details.
Gigbeth is also a music conference involving Digital Central. Hopefully some more information on what that comprises will emerge closer to the date but I’d imagine promoters, labels and other industry figures will be in attendance.
Naturally there’s also a MySpace presence.
