A-road flyovers are deeply underrated. Oh, okay, that's not entirely true, but it is on Saturday August 20 when the Flyover Show lands in Brum.
The city’s most dynamic urban arts event will once again transform the grey space beneath the Hockley Flyover into an oasis of cultural expression, as the one-day festival of music, art and dance returns.
Created and curated by the award winning jazz saxophonist and BBC presenter, Soweto Kinch, The Flyover Show has held annual events underneath the Hockley flyover from 2008 to 2012 – with over 6,000 people attending its last show in 2012.
Headlining will be legendary jazz and reggae guitarist and composer Ernest Ranglin alongside Kinch himself. The pair are currently performing on Ranglin's farewell tour, appearing at Glastonbury, The Barbican, Montreal Jazz Festival, Istanbul Jazz Festival and Philharmonie De Paris.
Live music, spoken word, graffiti art, break dancing, local food stalls and a host of arts and activities for all ages will also be on site, 12pm until 9pm.
The Flyover Show 2016 can be accessed via four subway tunnels, connecting the site to Soho Rd, New John St, Great Hampton St and Heaton St.
