GIGBETH 2008, Birmingham's biggest music festival, has announced new headline acts Hip Hop & Rap star Kano, and Drum & Base pioneer Fabio, to its event line up this November.

Fabio and Kano will join artists such as The Guillemots, The Young Knives, Sugarhill Gang and Stanton Warriors as headliners for the Birmingham music festival.

London born Rapper Kano is a BRIT award nominated artist who has collaborated with some of Britain's biggest artists including Damon Albarn, Craig David, Kate Nash, and Brummie Mike Skinner from The Streets. His most recent 2008 single 'Hustler' peaked at number 12 in the charts.

Fellow Londoner Fabio has been on the Drum & Bass scene for over two decades and has been a pioneer in the genre almost single handedly carving out the Liquid Drum & Base scene.

This year's Gigbeth headliners are a testament to the festival's diversity, and organisers feel that there is an act to suit every taste with a multitude of artists from a diverse spectrum of genres including Hip Hop, Drum & Bass, Jazz, Dance, Folk, and Indie.

Clare Edwards, Founder and Coordinator of Gigbeth says: "I'm delighted to announce that internationally revered artists Kano and Fabio have been added to the Headliners at Gigbeth. I feel that Kano and Fabio give the bill a bit more depth and add to the diversity that makes Gigbeth unique. This is without doubt the strongest lineup Gigbeth has ever had and with every passing year, Gigbeth is becoming more and more a symbol of the city's vibrant music scene."

Tickets are available by ringing the official Gigbeth Box Office on 0844 888 3883.
