BASS Festival

For over a decade BASS Festival has been producing groundbreaking collaborative events, bringing the freshest music and arts to Birmingham, London and beyond. BASS17: THIS IS AFRICA is a holistic celebration of the arts, culture and heritage of Africa and artists of African heritage, both from the continent itself and from UK based artists.

BASS is the UK’s only month-long festival showcasing the best Black music and arts through unforgettable live concerts, workshops, Q&As and more with musical legends including Goldie, Jah Shaka, Giles Peterson, Blackstreet and Channel One Soundsystem. BASS has also been instrumental in breaking emerging artists who have later gone on to become household names such as Lady Leshurr, Ghetts, JP Cooper, and Professor Green.
