Moseley Festival

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:

Ben Calvert
Ben Drummond
Cracked Actors
Chris Tye
David Garside
Fun House Robots
Just Us
Little Sister
Maz Mitrenko
Micky Greaney
Moseley Village Band
Nick Martin
Sohan Kailey
Steve Ajao
Taxi for Jesus
The Celturian
The Scott Dean Project
The Sugarbeats
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.
