Posters across Birmingham suggest that a new music venue is coming to the city. The cryptic artwork states, ‘All We Wanna Do Is Dance’ followed by ‘A music venue for Birmingham from the people of Birmingham’. A QR code that takes you to a website, www.xoyobirmingham.co.uk, and a countdown clock is included.
A quick search online also shows a new Instagram account @xoyobirmingham, that repeats the poster messaging but also reveals a ‘sister venue to @xoyoldn’. Joining these dots together points towards a plan by renowned London club brand XOYO to open XOYO in Birmingham.
There is no more information about where the venue will be or what Birmingham clubbers can expect from it. However, XOYO London has built a reputation as one of the capital’s leading clubs with high-profile residencies from Andy C, Interplanetary Criminal, Goldie, Heidi, Flava D, and many more.
The information available so far emphasises a venue for Birmingham from the people of Birmingham, suggesting a sister venue that stands alone from London with a focus on the second city.
According to the countdown, all will be revealed 50 days from now. Sign up for more information at www.xoyobirmingham.co.uk.
