THIS year's Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul Festival is promising to be the biggest and best yet.

This is a special year for the organisers as they gear up to celebrate the festival’s 10th anniversary.

The team are promising their biggest programme of entertainment yet, having opened the new ‘Off Piste’ area of the park in 2018.

The programme for Off Piste and the festival as a whole is set to expand this year to encompass even more music plus dance sessions, artist Q&A’s, music workshops and more.

The Jacksons, Brand New Heavies, and Burt Bacharach will headline this year's event, which runs from July 12 to 14

Having celebrated 50 years as one of the most successful groups in music history, The Jacksons headline Friday, July 12.

Initially finding international success with the Motown label, their recordings, including ‘I Want You Back’, ‘ABC’ and ‘I’ll Be There’, have sold in excess of 200 million.

Filling the headline support slot is Ibibio Sound Machine, fronted by Nigerian singer, Eno Williams and Jurassic 5’s Soup will also take to the main stage with his new project, The Fullee Love Collective.

The Brand New Heavies describe their music as “a unique mix of jazz, funk and soul”, making these pioneers of Acid Jazz arguably the perfect people to headline the Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul stage on Saturday, July 13.

Making a return as Saturday’s co-curator and performing his ever popular headline DJ set is Craig Charles.

One of the world's most acclaimed and award-winning composers/songwriters, Burt Bacharach, will be bringing the celebrations to a close on Sunday, July 14.

He’s received three Academy Awards, eight Grammys and an induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

‘I Say A Little Prayer’, ‘I'll Never Fall In Love Again’, ‘Walk On By’ and ‘What The World Needs Now Is Love’ are just a few of the 48 Top 10 hits and 9 number one songs under his belt that have been written for or covered by some of music’s greatest legends; Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Tom Jones, Etta James and Luther Vandross are just a few of the long list of artists he’s worked with.

Set in the truly beautiful and unique setting of Moseley Park, Birmingham, the festival runs from July 12 to 14.

Every year, the park plays host to a weekend of blistering live music, attracting people from all over the world who gather to see International legends alongside the latest contemporary breakthrough artists from the world of Jazz, Funk & Soul.
