Returning once again to our city is a late summer celebration of 2nd city and south american festivities. The Espirito Brum Festival will be taking over Digbeth, bring over a collection of Brazilian musicians and artists to mingle and perform with some of Birmingham’s creative types.
An annual celebration of music, art and creative communities in Birmingham and Brazil, Espirito Brum is the UK edition of Espirito Mundo. Other European partners include Celles Sur Belle (Poitou Charentes), Aix en Provence, Paris and Madrid. Birmingham is the first and only UK city to partner in Espirito Mundo.
Espirito Brum supports an abundance of creative collaborations in Birmingham between visiting and local artists, taking shape in concerts, workshops, recordings, art installations, exhibitions, live performances, networking, and a resident shop space in New Street, Birmingham City Centre.
Venues so far include The Spotted Dog, The Edge, The Custard Factory and includes the greater Birmingham area, with events hosted in Ort Cafe and Kings Heath Village Square and the Hare & Hounds.
Check out the announced line up performers and events here. We’ll no doubt be heading down to one or two events, but we’d love to hear from you or see any photos you have from the Festival afterwards.
