The Flyover Show, Birmingham’s most dynamic urban arts event, will once again transform ‘the grey space beneath the Hockley Flyover into an oasis of cultural expression’, as Soweto Kinch’s one-day festival of music, art & dance returns on Sat 18th August.
Headlining The Flyover Show 2018 will be Zara McFarlane – playing alongside a bill of musical luminaries, many of whom have been supported by and performed at previous Flyover Show events.
Further acts confirmed to perform at The Flyover Show 2018 include: Ayanna Witter Johnson, Shay D, Femi Temowo, Xhosa Cole, Sic’Nis, Black Symbol, Ashley Allen, Truemendous, Janel Antoneshia, Dudes of Jazz and Blue Lab Beats.
Soweto Kinch will also be playing at The Flyover Show 2018, along with the legendary house band.
Live music, spoken word, graffiti art, break dancing, local food stalls and a host of arts & activities for all ages will be taking place at The Flyover Show 2018 from 12noon until 9pm. The Flyover Show is, as it always has been, a free to attend and family friendly festival.
Walking distance from Birmingham City Centre, The Flyover Show 2018 can be accessed via four subway tunnels, connecting the site to Soho Rd, New John St, Great Hampton St & Heaton St.
“The Flyover Show is about celebrating the traditions of black culture in our city, whilst giving local people a live show they may never get to experience,” explains Soweto Kinch.
“It’s also about challenging the preconceptions surrounding the area, showing that community and culture can thrive in all corners of our city’s heart. With certain artists and genres there’s a wall; an unadmitted barrier between venues, promoters and a potentially wider audience. The Flyover Show breaks down these constraints of culture and class, and brings world renowned acts right into the heart of our community.”
