Simmer Down Festival returns to the beautiful setting of Handsworth Park on Sunday, July 21. Now in its ninth year, the free open-air event is one of the largest music and arts festivals in the UK.

Celebrating Birmingham's rich cultural diversity and the city's unique reggae legacy, the festival offers fun for all the family including live performances, art workshops, participation activities, children and young people's meadow area, plus craft and food stalls and a licensed bar area.

Mukhtar Dar, Festival Director of Simmer Down Festival CIC, said: "We are delighted to confirm Jamaica's 'Foundation' roots reggae legends Johnny Clarke and Horace Andy backed by the incredible Dub Asante Band. In addition, we have the homecoming, after 10 years of Paton Banton, who will be joined by his friends for a very special performance plus a massive line up Birmingham based artists. So make sure you're down for the best free party of the summer!".

Jesse Gerald, Chair of Simmer Down Festival CIC, said: "Simmer Down has grown to become the biggest free reggae festival in the UK. This would not have been possible without the support of our artists, audiences, Arts Council and our sponsors Crucial Sauce, Prostate Cancer UK and TLG Management. I would particularly like to thank our partner organisations and the SDF board members for helping us to plan and deliver what promises to be an incredible festival".

Funded by Arts Council England, SDF attracts over 22,000 diverse family audiences from across Birmingham and the region. As one of the biggest and most diverse festivals in the UK, SDF is firmly rooted in its local community and delivered in partnership with local community organisations, individuals and mainstream arts organisations.
