Birmingham’s summer festival season is in full swing.

And one event has more swing than most according to a new ranking of music events.

Travel website GoEuro ranked Birmingham’s Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival at No.2 in a list of Europe’s best jazz events.

It also described the city’s annual music event as one of the world’s most intimate jazz experiences.

GoEuro said: "With fusion festivals popping up left, right and centre – bringing funk, R&B, pop and electro sub-genres into the mix – jazz has never been more accessible.

"In it’s fifth year, Birmingham’s Mostly Jazz Festival has cemented itself as one of the most unique and intimate, and it joins the ranks among the 10 most iconic jazz events of the season.”

The Berlin-based travel website for Europe describes the Moseley event as follows: "Tucked away in Birmingham’s suburbs you’ll find the annual Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival.

"With just two stages and a delightful lakeside backdrop, its setting in Moseley Park provides the perfect intimate ambience.

"Now in its 5th year running, the festival is calling some big names to the stage, with legendary five-times Grammy Award winner Al Mckay bringing his Earth, Wind and Fire Experience to headline on the Saturday."

Top of the list of Europe’s events was the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. Coming in at No.3 was the Jazz Fest Wien in Vienna, Austria.

The Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival 2014 takes place on July 11, 12 and 13 - see here for full listings of who's on and when.
