With the gamut of music festivals and events happening in the city centre this summer it’s easy to forget about the suburban ones. Most of the districts in the sticks will be having some kind of village fete or festival usually lasting for a day, but Moseley’s lasts for a full week from June 22nd to July 1st. Here’s the events listing and it ends with Music In The Park, a two day weekend music festival taking place in the same venue as the Folk Festival.
By some cruel twist of fate it clashes with Rootsville on the Saturday, as does the madness of the Bournville festival, so tough decisions will have to be made. Nothing clashes on the Sunday as far I can can tell though.
The lineup for Music in the Park generally consists of local bands and artists. Here’s the current list:
Fun House Robots
|Moseley Village Band
Taxi for Jesus
The Scott Dean Project
The Tyler Band
Tom Bellamy and Band
Vix in the Kix
There are, of course, many more events happening over the week starting with the Launch Party tonight at the Patrick Kavanagh with Partners in Crime, The Copycats and Mark Guest. The schedule is here and programmes and tickets for the festival are available from Sage Wholefoods on Alcester Road.
If you know of any local festivals that have a strong arts / music bent do let me know.
