2016 Flyover Festival

Soweto Kinch with highlights from the 2016 Flyover Festival in Birmingham, including sets from Ernest Ranglin, Reuben James and Eska. Al Ryan also meets the crowds and performers.

The 2016 Flyover Festival returns to Hockley after a four-year layoff, and Soweto Kinch presents live sets from Ernest Ranglin, Reuben James and ESKA, from this vibrant outdoor event, held in the heart of urban Birmingham. Al Ryan meets the crowds and performers, and Soweto says: "The Flyover Show is about celebrating the traditions of black culture in the city, whilst giving local people a live show they may never get to experience otherwise. It's also about challenging the preconceptions surrounding the area, showing that community and culture can thrive in all corners of our city's heart. The Flyover Show brings world renowned acts right into the heart of our community.".
