Come see us at the Independent Birmingham Festival

On Saturday 13th May we’ll be playing an acoustic show at the inaugural Independent Birmingham Festival, which takes place at The Bond in Digbeth between 12-6pm. We’re onstage at 1pm, playing some stripped-down versions of songs from our recent TrailerParkLike LP. More info on the festival below.


On Saturday 13th May (12pm – 6pm), the inaugural Independent Birmingham Festival will be taking place at The Bond, Digbeth, showcasing the very best of Birmingham’s independent restaurants, bars, pubs, street food traders, retailers, artists, designers, producers and more in a day-long celebration of all that is great about our city.

Having begun life as a website and guide to independent culture in Birmingham, actively encouraging people to explore Brum’s lesser-known aspects and rediscover their city, Independent Birmingham then went on to create the Independent Birmingham Membership Card. The IBcard is now owned by over 15,000 people, acting as a key to the city and entitling cardholders to fantastic discounts and deals at over 95 of the very best independents in Birmingham. The website and the Independent Birmingham Membership Card both act to encourage the people of Birmingham to support local, celebrate the unique and to Believe In Birmingham.

The festival will take place between 12pm – 6pm at The Bond, with restaurant pop-ups, street food, cocktails, craft beer, local artists, designers and retailers showcasing why Birmingham is so great throughout the day.

Line-up (so far): The Church, El Borracho De Oro, The Warehouse Cafe, Baked In Brick, Low ’N’ Slow, Rob Wood (showcasing drinks from The Wilderness, Smultronställe, The Loft and Zindiya), The Cuban Embassy, Buddha Belly, The Victoria, Ross Jukes, The Bournville Waffle Company, Clink, Quarter Horse Coffee, Boo Boo Coffee, Twist, Peel and Stone, Anderson and Hill, Cheval Blanc, Brumhaus, Dot Moth, Connolly’s, The Birmingham Whisky Club, The Chocolate Quarter, Zen, Vincent Van Doodle, Pin Game and many more.
