Supersonic Festival is celebrating its 10th year of bringing adventurous music to Birmingham in 2012. It's back from October 19-21.
Supersonic is a combination of art, music and film and the team behind it - Capsule - pride themselves on crafting extraordinary events for the adventurous. You can listen to funeral doom, prog, folk, avant jazz and grindcore in one weekend.
It's another brilliant example of the depth and breadth of culture on offer in Britain's second city.
What promises to be one of the freakist series of events in Birmingham in 2012 takes place next month. Zombie chase game 2.8 Hours Later will be run across the city from Wednesday, 17th to Saturday, 20th October.
Looks like the most fun a zombie apocalypse could be!
To get you in the mood, The Electric cinema is showing Night of the Living Dead on October 12th.
