Midlands clubbing guide

Let’s get into the weekend’s music lineup and find something to keep you dancing until the early hours.

The weekend is dominated by the The Mostly Jazz, Funk and Soul Festival 2016 being held on Moseley Park, Birmingham. Things will be going off from 1:00pm until 11:00pm. Headliners include De La Soul and Grandmaster Flash as well as some splendid oddities like Nubiyan Twist and The Alternative Dubstep Orchaestra.

Weekend tickets are round the £100 mark or £42 for a day so you’re best taking the plunge and immersing yourself in the full shebang. The Hare & Hounds is hosting the afterparty and they bring DJ Maseo of De La Soul to the evening for a night of Funk, Hip-Hop, Jazz and Soul.  

Elsewhere you can get yourself down to Rainbow for Re:cord who’ve got their standard dose of House & Tech House, this week provided by Nick Curly  He’ll be rumbling heavy House and Techno beats from The Blackbox all night long with support from Adam Regan, Scott Bleepz and the Re:collective.  There’s more for Saturday. The Mostly Jazz Festival also returns with Craig Charles and The Average White Band leading proceedings  during the day. 

That night, if you pop over to High Line Resorts World you can catch Tom Shorterz and Charli C playing a night of House and R&B while over at The Hare & Hounds it’s UKG on the menu as DJ Luck and MC Neat are running things there.

Over at The Rainbow SOUP continue their run of terrace parties this time with Dirtybird’s Justin Martin for yet more House music and over in Wolverhampton there’s some more UKG, this time it’s GLAS presenting, with some of the genres biggest names including Flava D, Zinc and Artful Dodger, that’ll be going off at Starworks Warehouse and seems to be the place to be for anyone looking for music in Wolves over the weekend. 

Sunday sees the return to the Mostly Jazz Festival where the days headiners include Booker T Jones, Eska, The Birmingham Jazz Orchestra and George Clinton. Slim pickings this week but understandable as there’s a festival in the area,  enjoy what’s out there and we’ll see you next week.
