This weekend, the inaugural One Beat Sunday festival takes place on the outdoor arena at mac Birmingham, showcasing the wealth of musical talent the Midlands has to offer on, you guessed it, Sunday!
The day long festival, organised by One Beat Records and Birmingham Promoters, is a celebration of the vibrant music scene that has been prevalent within the region for decades but has enjoyed a resurgence of late, with local bands getting noticed on the national stage.
One Beat Records own The Carpels, will headline the event with support from Swim Deep, Poppy and the Jezebels, Temping Rosie plus many more.
Heralded by some of the most influential names in the music industry as the next significant band to break out of the Midlands, The Carpels blend of pop and indie rock mixed with a little tinge of punk edginess, brought them to the attention of former Charlatans drummer, Jon Brookes, who signed them to his EMI Distribution label One Beat Records.
Also at the event will be vintage stalls, DJ sets and an outdoor BBQ, ensuring that the first of (what is hoped to be an annual event) will be one of the highlights of the, thus far, dismal summer and with sun predicted for the day should be a scorcher!
Tickets are £10 each, to book online go to the link or call the sales centre. Tickets can also be purchased at the venue.
