The event will run from Saturday 11th until Sunday 12th July and takes place at The Glades Football Centre, Lugtrout Lane, Solihull, B91 2RX.
The concerts will start at 12pm and finish by 8pm.

Ample parking is available on site at a nominal cost.
There will be a variety of food and drink available, including a fully licensed bar. Picnics are also welcome.
We have scheduled to get through 4 acts an hour on average so with over 50 different acts across the weekend there will be something for everyone’s tastes.These acts will range from Junior/Secondary school ensembles, Choirs, Big Bands, Ukulele groups through to established bands that play regularly in the local
The event is aimed at families and we will be announcing some exciting attractions soon so there will be lots to do over the weekend.
About the event:
It is the aim of the festival to give youngsters the opportunity to show what they can do and to encourage them to continue participating in making music. We also hope that the event will inspire other youngsters to get involved.
We want those taking part to have an experience that will live with them forever.
The Rock and Pop Festival was created to give up-and-coming talent a venue which is safe, secure and provides professional expertise and equipment.
To top it off we have discovered an added bonus, friends and family watching the show are often motivated to take up playing. This years audience will become next years performers!
