The festival, which will incorporate venues across the city, including a massive outdoor stage in Millennium Point, is set to be the biggest yet.

Clare Edwards, the brainchild of the event, said: "It is very exciting that acts such as The Guillemots and the Sugarhill Gang are coming to Gigbeth. Those two acts are representative of the artists we have at this years Gigbeth, pioneers and current genre leaders from two very different musical fields."
