The Solihull Summer Fest is back for 2022, and is celebrating its sixth year with an incredible line-up! It's set to take place at Tudor Grange Park in Solihull on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th July 2022.
The Sunday line-up for the main stage features an impressive array of big music stars from the 1980s, including singer-songwriter Billy Ocean, whose hits include "Caribbean Queen", "Suddenly" and "When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going". 
80s pop fans will be excited to hear that the American singer Belinda Carlisle will also be performing. She achieved top 5 UK hits with "Heaven is a Place on Earth", "Circle in the Sand" and "Leave A Light On". 
Also performing are Kool & The Gang, Bad Manners, The Real Thing and Dr. & The Medics.

The Saturday line-up includes the reggae fusion and dancehall musician Shaggy, and anyone who lived through the 90s will remember his massive No.1 hits "Oh Carolina" and "Boombastic". 
American vocal group Sister Sledge are also on the main stage, and 80s fans will certainly remember their No.1 hit from 1985, "Frankie". They are also remembered, of course, for their big 70s hits "We are Family" and "Lost in Music".
Shalamar are also in the Saturday line-up, and the band had a string of hits in the 80s which included "A Night To Remember", "I Can Make You Feel Good" and "Dead Giveaway".
Also performing are Boyzlife, Artful Dodger, Lemar and Duke.
The Second Stage will be hosted by The Soul Selection featuring the finest 70s & 80s Soul & Funk Anthems during the two day event. The Soul Selection stage is headlined on the Saturday by Kenny Thomas and on Sunday by Trevor Nelson.
It's being described as "the ultimate feel good music festival" by the organisers, and if you would like to purchase some tickets (including VIP options), they are available to buy online at
