Pritchatt’s park will be hosting a student-run festival of their own this year, on Friday the 5th of June (less than two weeks away!) called The Park at Dark. The event will have a main stage playing host to many individual and talented artists and DJ’s, as well as a barbecue and endless fun on inflatables around Pritchatt’s park. Good music is not the only thing that Park at Dark will offer. With a ticket, guests will get an item from the BBQ, a Pimm’s – or a non-alcoholic drink, and an ice cream. Guests will have full access to the main stage where the day will unfold musically!
The one day festival has a line-up of six amazing acts, keeping attendees singing and dancing from 4pm until half 8. The first of these is AbraCappella – a mixed A cappella group formed in 2014, consisting of nine members. The group will be playing a variety of songs, all with original arrangements. The second act that attendees can be very excited about is Nigerian-born singer-songwriter, Issac O and the Boys. He is a university favourite, winning UoB’s Got Talent, and regularly gigging in and around Birmingham. Issac O’s style is a mixture of soul and pop, injecting a happy, catchy and colourful vibe into his music and whoever listens to it.
As well as these exciting acts, Little Dynamite will play the main stage at Pritchatt’s Park. The act perform as a band or as an acoustic duo, playing well-know and favourite covers, as well as originals. Vocalist Lizzie Haynes has a powerful voice, and the accompaniment is polished and effective. The next act to look forward to is St. Elmo’s Fire, bringing soul and funk to the table. The band consists of five members, and are known for their catchy riffs and bass – one to look forward to.
As well as Asher Lovell and Tom Mitchell covering classics and chart favourites acoustically, The Uptone Girls will also be gracing the main stage at The Park At Dark. This act are an all-female eight-piece A cappella group. They are a University of Birmingham favourite, and are highly praised. The group began performing in 2010, and since then have won awards including Best Vocal Percussionist at The Voice Festival in 2013. The eight girls gig regularly in and around Birmingham, performing their own unique arrangements. This act is not one to be missed. This fun-filled Friday promises to be a day brimming with colourful music, delicious food, and (fingers crossed) sunshine!
