Line up:
18:30 - Doors
19:00 - Punch the Sky
20:30 Electric Swing Circus (with live brass)

The stellar musical line up reflects the cultural melting pot of the city itself taking in gypsy jazz, jungle and of course a healthy dollop of traditional and electro swing. Birmingham has become the home for the electro swing in Europe. Where better to where better to summer swing away under than in mac's beautiful Outdoor Arena.

Line up includes:

Electric Swing Circus; a live 6-piece fusion of saucy 20's swing and stomping electro beats. With an explosive sound that reverberates back through time, the ESC hotfoot their way through everything from, rock to electronica, house, big beat and rock n roll, all with their own unique style of swing. Come and see what happens when we add live horns to the show!

Punch The Sky; a new band from Birmingham, UK, ready to give you the ultimate live experience influenced by World Music, Rock, Funk and Ska (a genre known as "Wonka" by musicologists and other idiots).
