Rising Birmingham band for new city festival

Ivory Wave join the line-up for Shiiine On: Birmingham.

Birmingham five piece Ivory Wave have been added to the bill of the huge one day Shiiine On Birmingham one day festival taking place at the Genting Arena, NEC on Saturday 8th September.

The event, which sees performances by heavyweights such as Orbital, Shed Seven, Happy Mondays, Embrace, Julian Cope and Cast will see the hometown lads take to the stage in their biggest show to date

Speaking on the announcement they said: “We’re absolutely buzzing to be a part of this festival. Playing with bands like Shed Seven, Happy Monday’s and Cast that we all grew up listening to really is a dream come true for us. We can’t wait to bring our sound to Shiiine On”.
