Artists such as Bob Marley and Amy Winehouse have previously performed here.
As we start to see more live music events taking place, a brand new venue is arriving in Birmingham for you to celebrate its long-awaited return. Plus hopefully less lonely nights at home and instead more on the dancefloor with our mates.
The new entertainment space with a 3,500 capacity, now known as Forum Birmingham, has been transformed and plans to open its doors on September 3. Forum Birmingham will be welcoming world class DJs and live acts from across the live and electronic music spectrums making it a must-visit destination for your future nights out.
Despite having witnessed some truly iconic moments in British music history, this storied building on Dale End, formerly known as The Ballroom, has remained dormant and decaying for a decade. But this year, the building is coming back to life as Global Venues has extensively renovated and modernised the space just as restrictions have been lifted.
The opening night will see performances from hometown hero Mike Skinner (The Streets), electronic music pioneer A Guy Called Gerald and Belgian producer-DJ Netsky. Plus there will be performances and DJ sets from a host of Birmingham and UK talent including new Forum residents Theo Kottis, Erol Alkan, Yung Singh, Shosh (24 Hour Garage Girls), Hammer, Barely Legal and Oneman.
The venue’s Autumn/Winter programme from the Dale End cultural space features a dazzling line-up of globally-renowned artists and DJs including Andy C, Bicep, David Rodigan, Floating Points, Honey Dijon, Kerri Chandler, and Skream.
