This festival based in Shard End, which is situated in the East of Birmingham approximately 4 miles from Birmingham Airport and the fantastic NEC and World Resorts complex. Shardfest started its life as a local festival but has now gained critical acclaim both nationally and internationally.
We are currently moving into our 5th year of bringing SHARDFEST to Birmingham and 2018 means to be bigger and better than the last! Shard End has always been a massive music suburb of Birmingham and has produced some amazing artists such as Jeff Lynn ELO, Roger Taylor Duran Duran, John Lodge Moody Blues and Roy Wood of Wizard. The Move (Jeff Lynn/Roy Wood) had their first ever record played on BBC Radio One.
So you can see Shard End has a great heritage and therefore has a great foundation to continue to grow and become a date in diary alongside the likes of V Festival and Download. SHARDFEST has seen over the past 4 years some of the UK’s best artists take to the stage including James Arthur, Boyzlife (Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden), Five after Midnight, General Levy, Lemar, Reggie n Bollie, So Solid Crew, Stooshie, Lucy Spraggan, Musical Youth, Union J the best in Drum n Base and UK Jungle/ UK Garage the event is quickly becoming like no other festival a FESTIVAL for ALL.
