Where would Birmingham's night life be without the Rainbow Venues? In a pretty poor state, that's where. Over the last 10 years the Digbeth outpost has grown to encompass a pub, a bar, a couple of clubs and an enormous arena, and nine times out of ten, this is where you'll find the cream of the dance music world doing their thing in the second city.
April sees the venue celebrate its eleventh birthday and the guys at Rainbow are throwing a suitably massive all-day party on April 4 to mark the occasion of entering 'Chapter X1'. Bringing together many of the promotions that have made Rainbow one of the UK's best clubbing destinations, this year's very special 'Rainbow Festival' will see the likes of Seedy Sonics, Face, Shadow City, Dolce Vita, Resonate, Portal, Blackdot and 02:31 combine for one of the biggest inner-city dance music events that 2015 will see.
House and techno heavyweights Loco Dice, Seth Troxler, Ben Klock and Hector headline the Arena space, with Steve Lawler, Bicep, Richy Ahmed, Daniel Avery and Paul Woolford in The Warehouse and Garden. The Basement will welcome DJ Zinc, Shadow Child and T.Williams to town, while The Arch hosts a tantalising Swamp81 showcase with label bossman Loefah joined by Benton, Chunky and Klose One.
Second and third release tickets are still available - head over to the Rainbow website to grab yours and for more info.
