This summer, influential British icons The Specials and legendary reggae heroes Toots And The Maytals will share the stage for the very first time. With both acts boasting significant careers that span over 40 years, they’ll play at the end of May to kick-start the summer with a refreshing mix of timeless anthems.
This epic outside concert takes place Lakeside on the NEC site, just outside the Genting Arena.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to capture the roots and soul of modern music’s most beloved genre, right here in Brum!
Joining the line-up will be Bedouin Soundclash and The Dead 60s' frontman Matt McManamon as DJ.
Our performance times are usually confirmed closer to the show. We’ll post the times as soon as we can get them, so check back about a week before for updates.
