Fierce Festival 2014

When: 1-12 October 2014
Where: Various locations
Tickets available online

Next month Fierce Festival returns for 2014, and is even bigger and better than before. The Festival hub will be located at The Edge over the course of the first weekend on 3-4 October, coinciding with Digbeth First Friday on 3rd October 2014.

As the festival grows it is becoming more geographically dispersed, but many events still take place in Digbeth. Although tickets are now available to buy online, a good selection of events remain free to attend. I’ve highlighted a selection of events below; please click here to visit the Fierce website to see the full programme.

After receiving training from Amsterdam-based artist Dina Rončević, seven local girls aged between 10 and 12, will disassemble a car to its nuts and bolts over three days. The work aims to challenge issues of social identity and gender roles in the male-dominated auto mechanic socio-cultural niche.
