News: New Birmingham city centre music festival announces location and lineup

Editors are amongst acts confirmed to headline the first edition of new Birmingham city centre festival Beyond The Tracks in September 2017

Ocean Colour Scene, Editors, The Twang, Higher Intelligence Agency, Victories At Sea, Dorcha, Jaws, Superfood, Goodnight Lenin, Health and Efficiency, Table Scraps, Blackash, and The Americas are amongst Birmingham acts confirmed to play a brand new city centre music festival later this year.

Beyond The Tracks, set to take place in Eastside City Park between Friday 15 and Sunday 17 September 2017, will feature headline sets from internationally acclaimed electronic acts Orbital, Faithless and Leftfield – performing classic 1995 album Leftism in its entirety.

Event organisers also today announced performances from Jaguar Ma, Maximo Park, The Coral, Carl Barat and The Jackals, The Sandinistas, Jesus and Mary Chain, Wild Beasts, Slow Dive, Peter Hook and the Light, Nadine Shah, Josefin Orhn and The Liberation.

The first edition of the weekend festival will see artists performing in the shadow of the Grade I listed Curzon Street Station building close to the site of the proposed HS2 high-speed rail terminus. It is one of the first major live music events to take place within the boundaries of Birmingham city centre for a number of years.

The immediate area around Eastside City Park has seen considerable redevelopment in the past decade and is now home to Birmingham Ormiston Academy, Birmingham City University, and a number of reopened venues and pubs including The Eagle and Ball and The Eagle and Tun.

Beyond The Tracks is produced by the team behind Moseley Folk Festival, Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul and Lunar Festival.

Tickets for Beyond The Tracks, priced from £45.00 – £49.50, go on sale this Friday 14 April via See Tickets
