Metropolis Music has just unveiled its first Centenary Square Summer Series, a four-day festival series boasting a capacity of 4,999 right in the heart of Birmingham.

Set to take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend (August 23-26th), the series aims to revitalise the iconic Centenary Square into a concert venue featuring top-tier artists.

Following the successful format of the Summer Series at London’s Somerset House and The Piece Hall in Halifax, Yorkshire, the Centenary Square Summer Series will be curated by Metropolis Music and produced in collaboration with Cuffe and Taylor.

Dan Roberts, series programmer, at Metropolis Music, said: “Birmingham and the people of the West Midlands deserve a flagship summer festival series. In that spirit, we are excited to announce the inaugural Centenary Square Summer Series. Thanks to everyone at Birmingham City Council, B: Music, friends and residents around the square for supporting this concept. Bookings are complete; we’ve got some amazing artists lined up for you, more news soon.”

Councillor Saima Suleman, cabinet member for digital, culture, heritage and tourism, said: The Centenary Square Summer Series will offer Birmingham residents and visitors the opportunity to see high-profile bands and musicians in the heart of the city centre next summer. The city council alongside B: Music and key stakeholders around Centenary Square have supported Metropolis Music to develop this event which we hope will grow to be a key annual event in Birmingham.”
