Below have come a long way since launching with an illegal warehouse rave at  Big Danny's place in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter eight years ago. Having spent the best part of a decade inspiring and influencing the city no end, with great parties in non-commercial spaces, the night celebrates their eighth birthday this May Bank Holiday with one of their most ambitious events yet across three different outdoor and indoor spaces at The Rainbow complex.

The first part of the birthday takes place on May 4th at The Rainbow Warehouse, Arena and in the Rainbow Courtyard. The party has been put together by co-founders Adam Shelton and Lee McDonald as an overview of their influences to date and will see a very special live PA from Inner City, plus sets from house gangster DJ Sneak, techno innovator Derrick May, New York house star Todd Terry, plus Kevin Saunderson, Mr C and of course Adam Shelton

Then there is a return to basics; to what Below is all about - a very special afterparty running from midnight in the Rainbow Warehouse with Adam Shelton and Alex Arnount b2b, Frenchy and Tristan da Cunha b2b. And for the real hardcore out there the party will carry on into Sunday just as Below always has, with more goodies in the hallowed Rainbow Courtyard - a place which lends itself perfectly to twisted afterhours activities and is the perfect encapsulation of the Below ethos. This time headlining will be hot properties Paranoid London. Matthew Styles, H Foundation, Bloody Mary and Tom Craven will all play.

Tickets for the Below 8th Birthday celebrations are now on sale with Skiddle, starting at £15 for a Sunday ticket or £54.50 for an entire weekend ticket including afterparty entry. Get yours now.
