Inside out festival
Main weekend 24-26th September, Running until 1st October.
For a weekend full of performances, fun and games, interventions and ‘art trails’ all around Digbeth, you must be part of the “Inside out festival” which takes some of the wonderful and admittedly weird happenings around the area taking a strong focus on the theme of inside/outside and the idea of taking a day off to engage with art.
This fantastic new festival brings great art and music to ‘The Edge’ – Digbeth’s underground arts venue. A eclectic combination of international, national and local artists will produce together produce a series of artworks and performances to formulate a series of art trails around the historic Digbeth to highlight great talent and Digbeth’s history. Some of the interesting artworks include transforming public spaces and transforming roof top and bus stops into worlds of endless artistic possibilities creating a beautiful combination of street art and fine art in a post-industrial area.
