Circo Loco is back in Birmingham in 2013 and returning to the Arena space. To utilise more of The Rainbow Venue array of spaces they are expanding the site in conjunction with Type Festival to use the Rainbow Warehouse, The Rainbow Garden and the adjoining street that stretches underneath 18th century viaducts which acts as an amplifier for the sound within them.
Situated in Digbeth, the event hosts a line up that includes Seth Troxler, Matthias Tanzmann, Davide Squillace, Cassy, Kerri Chandler, Maceo Plex, Apollonia, The Martinez Brothers, Tania Vulcano, System of Survival and Tale of Us. To complement Circo Loco’s complete take over of the Arena and street, Type will be introducing itself with a collection of artists; Berlin hero Prosumer, NYC’s Levon Vincent, Needwant’s Kim Ann Foxman, a special live showing from John Heckle and sets from San Soda and Citizen. On Day 2, Type takes over The Arena with Jamie Jones to headline, alongside Carl Craig. Also in on the action in the massive Arena is Joy Orbison of Non Plus, Hinge Finger and Doldrums association, as well as Move D and One Records main men Adam Shelton and Subb-Ann.
