The event will showcase "everything that is great" about the Lanes, which is home to one of the largest all-independent business communities in the country.

The streets, courtyards and open spaces will be full of things to see and do, including pop-up markets, live music, DJ collectives and lots of food and drink from local producers.

There are nine different areas at this year's event, each offering something unique to visitors.
