We only attended the Sunday (due to the fact there are three festivals we want to do this year so we have to make the pennies stretch). The Mostly Jazz, Funk and soul festival is a yearly event held in Moseley Park, the park is only open to the public for a few days a year. The rest of the time it can only be accessed by key holders.
This year the event was a little bigger, as there was a new part to the festival, as well as the two stages there was a chill out area called ‘Off Piste’ set in the shady part of the park with chilled out music and DJs.
It was very hot and despite keeping covered up, wearing a big hat and slapping on factor 50 every half hour I still burnt. The only problem with this park and this type of festival is the fact that there is very little shade, what little there is is kept for the disable and families with small children.
The line up for Sunday was, in no particular order

It was a little heavy on the Jazz side for me, but still a good day
