THANKS FOR ATTENDING BEYOND THE TRACKS 2017!

OUR FIRST YEAR WAS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST AND WE CAN'T WAIT TO BRING IT BACK AGAIN. WE ARE BUSY MAKING PLANS FOR WHEN WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO THIS AND HOPE TO ANNOUNCE THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 

THE FESTIVAL

OVER 3 DAYS WE HOSTED A LINE-UP OF MUSICAL HEAVYWEIGHTS, WITH EACH DAY HAVING IT'S OWN IDENTITY. FROM ELECTRONIC MUSIC PIONEERS ORBITAL HEADLINING THE FRIDAY NIGHT, TO A COMPLETE BRUMMIE INDIE-FEST HEADLINED BY LOCAL HEROES OCEAN COLOUR SCENE, FINISHED OFF BY MULTI-MILLION SELLING EDITORS AFTER A POST-PUNK SHOEGAZING SUNDAY. IT'S SAFE TO SAY THAT THE PERFORMANCES FROM 2017 WILL BE A TOUGH ACT TO FOLLOW WHEN THE FESTIVAL RETURNS!

AS WELL AS THE LEGENDARY ARTISTS, WE ALSO HAD A GREAT SELECTION OF GOURMET CATERERS TO SUIT ALL TASTES AND APPETITES. THIS INCLUDED FOODS FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE SUCH AS CARIBBEAN CURRIES, AMERICAN SMOKEHOUSE MEATS, HOMEMADE ITALIAN PIZZAS, GOURMET BURGERS, VEGETARIAN/VEGAN OPTIONS AND MUCH MORE! WE ALSO HAD A CHOICE OF WELL STOCKED AND WELL STAFFED BARS SERVING QUALITY LAGERS, ALES AND CIDERS, WINE MERCHANTS, FIZZ ON TAP, COCKTAIL MIXERS AND GIN TRADERS.

THE FOOD WASN'T THE ONLY EXTRA BENEFIT ON OFFER. AN ARRAY OF FAIRGROUND RIDES MEANT YOU COULD SIT ATOP A FERRIS WHEEL, LOOKING OVER THE FESTIVAL SITE IN FRONT OF YOU, WITH THE TRAIN TRACKS TO YOUR LEFT AND BIRMINGHAM CITY CENTE TO THE RIGHT - WHAT A VIEW! OUR FESTIVAL TRADERS ALSO OFFERED A PLACE TO RELAX WITH MASSAGES, A RANGE OF FESTIVAL MERCH, A DISCO CARAVAN AND MANY OTHER TRINKETS AND TREASURES.

THE FEEDBACK WE'VE HAD FROM ALL WHO ATTENDED HAS BEEN OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE, AND WE ARE GENUINELY THANKFUL TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO HAS SUPPORTED US IN OUR FIRST YEAR! WE CAN'T WAIT TO BRING IT BACK AND DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN.
