The multi-faceted 3,500 capacity entertainment space, Forum Birmingham, is ready to open its doors and welcome world class DJs and live acts!
Just in time for our return to the dance floor, a newly renovated entertainment space, Forum Birmingham, is about to welcome DJs and live acts from across the live and electronic music spectrums.
The storied building formerly known as The Ballroom has lain dormant and decaying for a decade. This sleeping beast has now been awoken by Global Venues who have extensively renovated and modernized the space ready for lockdown easing in late summer.
Some of the upgrades include restoration of the original woven wooden sprung dance floor in addition to stripped back and newly polished concrete floors, a steel mezzanine for overarching views, and unfussy but stylish industrial decor. The most important detail of all is the sound system which will see d&b audiotechnik install one of their highly regarded line array systems. Complementing this will be cutting-edge visuals provided by local DMX Productions.
Forum Birmingham is now set to become one of the UK’s landmark music venues – a must-attend for music lovers from all over the world! National promoters already confirmed include AEG Presents, Goldenvoice, Kilimanjaro Live, and Cream, with local Birmingham promoters Leftfoot, Shadow City, and Foliée already working on their first events. Full line-ups will be revealed at the end of April along with a complete list of promotions.
Forum can also announce their exclusive ticket partnership with Resident Advisor, with the influential online platform saying, “In the current climate, it is heartening to see venues like this rising from the ashes and helping to preserve the UK’s musical heritage. Forum Birmingham will create prosperity in the local area and support the music and hospitality industries. Forum’s music programming is diverse, exciting, and forward-facing and we are proud to be affiliated with such an epic musical offering. RA will provide Forum with its own branded white label platform through which tickets will be sold, as well as offering tickets through the main RA site.”
This exciting new chapter in the history of one of Birmingham’s most iconic venues is set to be the most thrilling yet. You can sign-up HERE for more information and pre-sale tickets!
