Birminghams very own super club Air is preparing to turn itself into a giant alfresco disco. The last bank holiday weekend in May will see the party burst outside of the venue into the surrounding area which will be spectacularly transformed into a clubbing playground with mighty sound systems and state-of-the-art production.
The event will become the first ever dance music festival to take place in the Birmingham city centre. Tarmac and skyscrapers offer a contrasting urban landscape to the usual green fields and rolling hills that typify most festivals. A giant stage will be erected in the grounds of Air giving clubbers the opportunity to experience the freedom of an outside event, contrasted with the intimacy of a club.
The Saturday session will run from 4pm till 4am and has been appropriately named Open Air. It will feature the kind of gargantuan line-up of DJ powerhouses that Godskitchen has become renowned for: the worlds official trance-meister Paul van Dyk and New Yorks most recognisable music export Erick Morillo share the head line slots. They are joined by the likes of chart-toppers Erick Prydz and Shapeshifters as well as Sander Van Doorn, D Ramirez and Galaxy Radios residents, Riley & Durrant and the faithful Godskitchen residents.
Paul van Dyk, Erick Morillo, Eric Prydz, Shapeshifters, Sander Van Doorn, Riley & Durrant, Trophy Twins, D Ramirez, Mark Eteson, Funkagenda, Micky Slim, OD Muzique, DJ Aleksij, Paul Thomas, Punkrok, James Algate.
