Returning for the third season, Level UP is an open mic spoken word poetry event featuring both a nationally renowned and young, emerging artist. Level UP is an event curated by young people for all people.
Episode 4 of Season 3 will feature Polarbear as our nationally renowned artist and Sophia Thakur as our emerging artist.
The event will be held at The DOOR, at REP Birmingham. This event is produced by Beatfreeks in partnership with Apples & Snakes supported by The REP and Birmingham City Council.
Joe Cook, a young musician and spoken word artist from Birmingham will be hosting and producing this season. Level UP will also feature Satellite Events in Sutton, Yardley, Weoley Castle and Winson Green, engaging groups outside of the city centre with spoken word and poetry.
