About as close as you're likely to get to the opening credits of Spectre, Festival of the Dead is coming to a Digbeth near you. And before you complete that little knowing sigh, it was hardly going to be taking place in Edgbaston now was it? Carnival-esque pageantry, giant skull processions, acrobats, piñatas, skull face painting and music at a volume that probably breaches some sort of directive in a goodly number of countries is what's included in your ticket. It's a house, bass and garage kind of deal — all with a Latin twist. And lots and lots of skulls for Pete's sake. We're a little bit obsessed with the promo video (headphones on). Early bird billets are all gone but you can book your little bit of Bond for £21.90 right here.
