MIDLAND heroes Ocean Colour Scene and the Editors are among the headliners of a brand new three-day music festival heading to Birmingham this summer.

Taking place at Eastside City Park across September 15-17, Beyond the Tracks features some of the most revered names in UK music and the brightest new stars.

Dance is the theme on the opening night on Friday, with electronic music pioneers Orbital headlining as brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll reunite after a five-year hiatus.

Influential 90s group Leftfield will also take to the stage on the opening night, while dance icons Faithless – whose hits include ‘God Is A DJ’ and ‘Insomnia’ – will perform a DJ set.

Australian psychedelic dance band Jagwar Ma are also on Friday’s billing.

A switch to Saturday sees local heroes Ocean Colour Scene headline on a juicy rock line-up which also includes guitar quartet Maximo Park and Liverpool rockers The Coral.

Fellow Midlanders The Twang will also grace the stage on Saturday.

Libertines guitarist Carl Barat is sure to excite the crowd with songs from his band Carl Barat and The Jackals – with classic Libertines tracks thrown in for good measure.

Sunday night will be closed by multi-million selling headliners the Editors, whose smash hits include ‘Munich’, ‘Blood’ and ‘Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors’.

Comebacks are very much on agenda on Sunday as The Jesus and Mary Chain and 90s shoegaze icons Slowdive take to the stage with their first albums in more than a decade.

Sunday festival-goers can also expect solo material and timeless New Order and Joy Division classics from Peter Hook & The Light.

Produced by the local promoters behind Moseley Folk Festival, Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul, and Lunar Festival, the festival will also include bars and stalls for food.

Tickets are on already on sale (opened from Friday, April 14) and are available from beyondthetracks.seetickets.com.

Ticket prices begin from £45.00, costing £45 for tier 1 and £49.50 for tier 2, with a student price of £40.
