Competition: Win tickets to BASS Festival 2013 launch party

BASS Festival will announce its plans and line-up for this year with a launch party and live concert at the Hare & Hounds this month.

The festival, curated by Punch, is one of the UK’s biggest celebrations of black music and arts and will take place at venues across Birmingham throughout June.

Festivities will kick off with a launch party on March 21, giving people the first chance to meet the artists and organisers and find out who is on the line-up for the festival, which this year has a theme of ‘Soul’.

After the launch there will also be a live gig by nine-piece afro-funk, soul and old school band KonKoma. Tickets for the gig are £10adv but we have three pairs of tickets to give away plus a signed copy of the band’s latest album.
