Dates for Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul 2020 are yet to be announced.
Doors open at 1pm on Friday and 11am on Saturday and Sunday. Each day finishes at 10.30pm.
The last performance will be around 9pm and so the last entry time will be approx. 9:30pm. However, once you have exchanged your ticket for a wristband you can come and go as you please until the site closes at 10:30pm.
The performing artists will be listed on the line-up page as soon as our full line-up has been announced.
Full performance times will be on display throughout the festival site, they will also appear in the festival programme on the inside cover.
Can I buy a ticket on the day?
As long as tickets have not sold out in advance they will be available to buy online throughout the festival or they can be purchased on the door. CASH ONLY PLEASE.
I have an E-ticket. What do I need to do?
If you purchased a ticket online from our ticket shop you will have been sent an E-ticket by email immediately after purchase. All you need to do is print it out or bring it on your phone (please ensure the barcode is visible) and bring valid ID or proof of address.
If you purchased a ticket from another ticket seller (i.e. not from our own website) please read their terms and conditions. If you have any issues with your tickets, please email the company from which you bought your ticket – we cannot help with any issues to do with tickets bought from other ticket sellers.
Help! My tickets haven’t arrived!
Tickets ordered online from our ticket shop are E-tickets sent via email (see above). If you have not received your tickets please check your Spam folder in the first instance. Can’t find the email? You can download your tickets from your account on our website using the email address and password you inputted during checkout.

I have bought tickets for a group and we are not all arriving at the same time, what should we do?
Each ticket has a different barcode and different ticket number. Please make sure everyone arriving separately has a different e-ticket. If you are arriving with all the tickets, you will be able to come out of the festival to give the tickets to your group as they arrive, as your wristband allows you to re-enter the festival.
What are my travel options?
Travelling to the festival from Birmingham city centre is easy. Catch the number 50 Bus opposite Moor Street Station (outside Selfridges) and get off in Moseley Village at the Co Op, opposite the park. It takes roughly 15 minutes.
