New Birmingham music venue the HMV Institute opens next week
Killers’ front-man, Brandon Flowers, award-winning producer Mark Ronson, and rapper Tinie Tempah, are just a few of the top artists set to perform at the new HMV Institute in Birmingham.
The venue, formerly the Digbeth Institute, will rival other city entertainment hotspots like the O2 Academy, the National Indoor Arena and the National Exhibition Centre when it opens next week.
Chase and Status, the talented duo who have taken the electronic world by storm, and BRIT award winner Kelis will also play at the new site.
The venue, formerly called the Sanctuary, is currently undergoing a £4 million transformation to turn it into a 2,400-capacity space and is expected to open its doors on September 18.
The main auditorium will have a 1,500 capacity, and will be complemented by the smaller library which holds up to 600 people. There are also two further club rooms, including the 300-capacity The Temple.
