BE FESTIVAL celebrates it’s 10th edition this year. Since the festival started in 2010, we’ve presented over 800 artists from 28 countries, supporting their passage through BE and beyond. We have toured the work of 46 artists around the UK for 9 years and 31 around Spain for 6 years to over 25,000 audience members, with another 35,000 experiencing An Wei’s Giant in Centenary Square.
And now, in 2019, we invite you to join us again, or for the first time, to the tenth edition. We are humbled and delighted that for one week every year, Birmingham hosts a little pocket of Europe where cultures blur and Europe becomes one. We wish to make extra special thanks to all the people, artists, volunteers, hosts and audiences who have supported, believed in, grown and shaped the festival to what it is today.
