The Digbeth venue was christened with sets from Radio Slave, Mark Henning and Ethy & Flori across two rooms of a former warehouse plus an outside terrace.
The building had been derelict for decades before being re-commissioned by TRMNL Music & Events and transformed into a music venue. ‘TRMNL Presents…’ will take place every Saturday bringing top names in techno such as Sebo K, Martin Buttrich, Onur Ozer, Audiofly and Barem. Next Saturday will feature Carl Craig, Dutch techno master Lauhaus and Birmingham’s latest protégée Samu.l.
TRMNL Music & Events founder and CEO, Dee Dixon said: “We could not have asked for a better turn out at Saturday’s big launch party. The crowds were amazing, the sounds were incredible and although we were thrown plenty of obstacles along the way we have made it through to create what I hope everyone agrees is a top clubbing destination for the Midlands and the UK. Thanks so much to all those who are helping to make this happen and continuing to support LAB11 and the return of TRMNL. Bring on Saturday’s Easter celebration with the master that is Carl Craig supported by Lauhaus and local talent Samu.l.”
Initially open on a Saturday night, LAB11 will ultimately be open six days a week with opportunities for local promoters and student promoters to run nights at the venue. TRMNL Music & Events is also in talks with some of the UK’s leading electronic music brands to programme some exclusive events in the space.
