Following 4 years of consecutively sold out events, MADE Festival returns in 2018 with it’s most impressive line up to date.
MADE Festival, held in the streets of Digbeth for the last four years, relocates to one of Birmingham’s most famous and impressive green spaces, Perry Park, to mark a new era for the city’s biggest music event. Perry Park, in Perry Barr, is the home of international athletics track, Alexander Stadium, and will be the centrepoint of the Commonwealth Games in 2022.
Entering the fifth year, MADE Festival 2018 will move away from the industrial spaces of Digbeth to a larger site, bringing some of the biggest names in music to the city, including Dizzee Rascal, almost 15 years to the day that his Mercury Music Prize winning album “Boy in Da Corner” was released. The five time chart topping artist is one of the UK’s most iconic music stars and is recognised as one of the pioneers of the UK grime scene.
Joining the five time UK chart topping Rascal, London-based garage and drum & bass pioneers, DJ EZ and Andy C, who need little or no introduction. The multi genre line up covers a wide range of contemporary sounds, with Liverpudlian house music act Camelphat riding on a high after their “Cola” release recently peaked at 18 in the UK singles chart, whilst popular veteran bass music act SASASAS return to Birmingham. Holy Goof hails from Coventry and has seen his popularity rise in the last 12 months and is considered one of the West Midlands most exciting production talents. Bafta Award winning Kurupt FM, stars of the BBC TV programme “People Just Do Nothing” make their third appearance at the festival, and two of the UK’s most exciting talents in the burgeoning Afrobeat and Hip Hop scene, Not3s and Yxng Bane complete the announce of the first nine headline acts with the festival promoters promising another 40 musical performers across the five stages.
The independent festival, operated by Weird Science Group, promises bigger and more exciting production, combined with some of Birmingham’s best visual and street artists, designers, set builders and award-winning street food vendors.
MADE Festival has consistently proved itself to be Birmingham’s leading festival and its commitment to showcasing boundary pushing music in all its guises has been the cornerstone for each event during previous years. Previous performers at MADE Festival have included Rudimental, Annie Mac, Stormzy, Chase & Status, Giggs, MK, David Rodigan and Kano, as well as championing West Midland’s finest exports including Goldie, Mike Skinner from the Streets, Hannah Wants, Steve Lawler and Lady Leshurr.
Now, following on from its most successful year, MADE Festival will carry its torch to Perry Park, in an impressive region of Birmingham, giving the weekend a new sense of space and freedom. Night time events will take place across venues in the city centre.
Festival Director, Pete Jordan, commented:
The fifth edition of MADE Festival will build on the phenomenal success over the last four years and marks a truly exciting new era for us. “It’s time to open a new, more colourful chapter in our history and we’re looking forward to making Perry Park our new home. We’ll be curating an amazing offering of music, performance arts, graffiti art, street food and creative culture that Birmingham has in abundance.
“We’d like to thank Birmingham City Council and the West Midlands emergency services who have worked hard with us to make this event a reality and help us continue to put the city on the map and showcase the amazing music events and creative industry that has been developing in the city in recent years. We are proud to be spearheading this movement with MADE Festival and appreciate all the support we have received”
