Midland’s favourite MADE have recruited a generous mix of stars for the world of house and bass music, as they return to Perry Park in Perry Barr. Keen to showcase a crop of homegrown success stories, the festival again combines local talent with internationally renowned acts. Holy Goof, from nearby Coventry, is one such artist whose profile has skyrocketed in the past twelve months, following the welcomed reception of his sophomore album, Globes.
Other bass heavyhitters include Andy C, East London MC Lethal Bizzle and trilogy TDQ. RAM Record legend Andy seems to get bigger year-on-year. It’s a good omen that every show he headlines is a certified sell-out! Elsewhere, fellow D&B heavyweights Sub Focus and Dimension will play a UK exclusive B2B following the success of the their recent Desire Desire collaboration.
Looking towards the house end of the spectrum, Mancunian tearaways Solardo will be showcasing why they’re the biggest names in tech right now.
From further afield, MADE is also drafting in talent from down under in the shape of bedroom producer turned man-of-the-moment, Mall Grab and Solotoko label boss Sonny Fodera from down under. Radio 1 dance music queen Annie Mac will be spanning the length and breadth of electronic music with her broad tastes, while Bristol’s My Nu Leng will be leaving few stones unturned, as they veer from bass styles through to house and back again.
Refusing to reveal all their cards at once, there’s still one more headliner left in the locker plus many more support acts to be announced in due course.
Promising to be bigger and better than all previous instalments, Festival Director Pete Jordan underlines MADE’s commitment to “fly the flag for Birmingham and be a part of the second city’s ever-growing international reputation.”
