After the success of this year’s Birmingham Mela, Raaj FM has announced plans for its next summer event coinciding with the arrival of the Olympic torch to Sandwell (Birmingham).

Like this year, the Birmingham Mela 2012 is being held at Victoria Park in the Smethwick area of the city between Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July 2012.

The inaugural event held earlier this year attracted over 40,000 people. After an opening by Jazzy B and Sukhshinder Shinda, thousands enjoyed performances from the biggest names in the music industry including Garry Sandhu, Foji Gill, Shin DCS and Sarbjit Cheema on one of the hottest weekends of the year.

Over the next few months, Raaj FM and Sandwell Council will be preparing for the Mela alongside with event product company Remarkable Productions and Events who produced this year’s event.

Gurpal Singh, Raaj FM Manager, “After the overwhelming success of this year’s Mela, we cannot wait for Birmingham Mela 2012. We are anticipating our crowds to double from last year’s event as the Mela is taking place over the whole weekend. We were delighted on hearing the news that the Olympic torch would be coming through the park during the Mela. Undoubtedly, this has enhanced our ambition to make this a summer showpiece that the whole of the West Midlands can be proud off.”
