Creating amazing events since 1999, Shaanti believes in nurturing and supporting new talent across the Midlands and the UK. Why, because we care about local music and artists of the future.

We believe in supporting grass roots and local musicians. It is vital and badly needed for musicians and Djs (both those based here and those touring to Birmingham), it is also wonderful and significantly enhancing of the cultural life of the city.
