Bank Holiday Festival to take place in May

Bacardi B-Live in association with sultans of diversity, Eclectricity are bringing a hot bed of contemporary music that will light the clubbing masses of Birmingham to a plethora of beats and sounds set to leave the factory rocking! The Custard Factory, one of the Midland's legendary clubs will take over Gibb Street to create a mini-festival and absorb fans into the unique space created by the industrial surroundings of Digbeth.

Annie Mac, The Plump DJs, The Count and Sinden (live), The Whip (live) and Pete Jordan are just some of the eclectic mix of pioneering DJs preparing to create a B-LIVE party spirit experience in Birmingham on the May Bank Holiday. BACARDI B-Live is synonymous with outstanding dance parties, blending an exceptional mix of renowned international DJs, acclaimed percussionists and unique BACARDI Rum cocktails.

Genre defining Drum & Bass legends, Roni Size (Reprazent) hit the headlines in 1997 when his Mercury Music Award-winning album, New Forms, threw him into the spotlight crowning him as one of the UK's jungle sound pioneers. With the beats that defined a generation, Roni Size and Reprazent's live bass lines will leave the midlands shaking to jungle until the early hours with their full 7 piece live band!

BACARDI B-LIVE will feature a unique line up of world famous DJs including BBC Radio 1 Mash Up legend Annie Mac, one of Britain's scouts for underground electronic music, labelled 'Champion Of New Music' by The Sun, renowned for her eclectic musical taste and hunger for fresh beats. Duo The Plump DJ's production talents have left an echo of ferocity in the Nu-Skool Breaks genre and are expected to take the B-LIVE area by storm.

Representing in one of the five unique arenas will be twisted house's pioneer Steve Lawler who started out rocking the M45 with 90s raves, with over 18 years in Ibiza including Space residency, Lawler is back in his home town. DJ dream team and DMC champions the Scratch Perverts will shock with their award winning turbo-charged turn-tablist skills and 11 years experience including residency at Fabric and are now set to funk-up Custard Factory fans with their creative passion for bass.
