The outdoor venue has got 11 live music and DJ led events heading to the Midlands this summer.

Sara Cox will be kicking off proceedings this week with The House and Garage Orchestra bringing the celebrations to a close in August.

Operations director at The MJR Group, Benjamin Newby, said: “We’re really looking forward to the shows this summer.

“You can now see your favourite artists, basking in the summer’s glorious sunshine without the need for an expensive weekend festival ticket or travelling miles away from the city to a festival site.”

Located in the heart of Birmingham, Digbeth Arena’s open-air space will create a metropolitan festival-esque atmosphere, and will feature a variety of pop-up food stalls and bars available at every show.
