The Rainbow announce Autumn and Winter line ups…

The Rainbow in Autumn

The Autumn Term in Birmingham is looking special indeed, as The Rainbow and associated promoters take over with a killer run of parties in many different venues in the city centre. As well as their usual home of the Rainbow Pub, these events will sprawl out into the street, into the garden, the Cellar and the courtyard making the most of the intimate and raw spaces, open air and sun kissed terraces, organic garden vibes and rough and ready warehouse space.

Across the next four months, learned promotion Face will add their usual attention to detail to all these spaces, with great light and sound, extra production and of course a wide range of music.  You will be able to catch everything from deep house to techno via tech house, electro, d&b, dubstep and more from a mixture of huge international acts and more breakthrough talents.


Some of the key dates include the third birthday with Scuba, Joy O and Matthias Tanzmann b2b David Squillace on 13th October, a huge event with ANNIE MAC on 17th November when Huxley and Boddika play for Face (the Radio 1 star also returns on November 17th with Magentic Man and Redlight in toe) whislt there will be a Bass Generation showcase on 12th October with Benga and Marky. RAM records take over on 30th November with Andy C headlining, and the Cream party returns on December 1st for a huge 20th Anniversary spectacular.
