 Sound Lounge 21 will be taking place right in the heart of Birmingham at the Town Hall & Symphony Hall on the 2nd August until the 4th. The festival centralises around emerging new talent across the city and it’s also a free event, so it’s an excellent opportunity to go and check out new bands and music from around the West Midlands!

As well as providing local bands with recognition it’s a chance for young people to become involved whether its performing or contributing to the festival itself. There is a vibrant mix of music including bands who are of the psychedelic folk/rock genre, soul and jazz and it’s a way in which people can hear something new, fresh and  alternative whilst at the same time supporting local talent.

A weekend that is guaranteed to be jam packed, some of the bands and artists who are performing live include: Mourning Suns, Call Me Unique, New Killer Shoes, Friday Club and Lumi HD.

On Wednesday 31st July I met the festival’s marketing and PR team member Omar Khan at the Symphony Hall which was a delight and really interesting because I found out a lot about Sound Lounge 21, how it all started and how he got involved. Click below to hear the interview:

The festival starts on Friday at 7pm and is running until 10:30pm on Sunday 4th August at the Town Hall. It’s worth going to see what up and coming musicians Birmingham has to offer! is the place to go to find out all about this exciting new festival, also be sure to like them on Facebook at: and if you want to follow them on twitter it’s @SoundLounge21.
