Our evolution continues as we move to an exciting new home on the outer edges of Digbeth, Birmingham. The post-industrial landscape of our midlands home is forever changing, so here’s the most up-to-date methods of joining us for our 16th edition festival…
The Mill, 29 Lower Trinity St, Deritend, Birmingham B9 4AG
ON FOOT/PUBLIC TRANSPORT
We encourage folks to use public transport as much possible to get to the festival. If coming from a Train Station in the City Centre, the quickest route to the festival is down the main Digbeth High Street – but HEADS UP – it is currently swamped with roadworks!
Here’s a google map with some main landmarks to guide you to the festival!
For those who are driving, Birmingham’s City Centre is now a ‘Clean Air Zone’ this means only certain vehicles can enter without being charged. The festival takes place within this zone.
IMPORTANT – if you are arriving in a vehicle please check if your registration plate is compliant here.
If your vehicle isn’t compliant, you will need to pay £8.00 each day your vehicle is within the clean air zone. A ‘day’ is classified as midnight to midnight, not 24 hours from when you enter the zone.
During that midnight to midnight timeframe, you can enter and leave the zone numerous times and only incur a single charge.
You can pay:
• six days in advance of the day of your visit
• the day of your visit
• six days after the day of your visit
Payments can be paid online HERE or over the phone by calling 0300 029 8888 (Monday to Friday, 8am to 4:30pm).
The B4100 is the main Digbeth High Street and is currently swamped with roadworks! If you are looking for somewhere to park, we recommend you enter Digbeth from the Ring Road, via Lower Trinity Street or Adderley Street. Here’s a list of recommended carparks close to the festival site…
