There’s nothing better than a homecoming story; especially when it concerns a Brummie export. After several years out in the wilderness of the West Midlands, MADE Festival returns to Birmingham this summer. Last seen in the city in 2019, it will return to its original inner-city site in Digbeth nine years after it started.
Heading to The Digbeth Triangle on July 29, expect a day and night jam-packed with the hottest electronic musicians and DJs, food traders in association with Digbeth Dining Club and local street artists. Across 11 stages, MADE Festival’s line up includes Hybrid Minds, Shy FX, Girls Don’t Sync, Flowdan (Live), Gardna (Live) ft Eva Lazarus, Luude, Ben Hemsley, Holy Goof, Oden & Fatzo (Live), Latmun, Danny Byrd, Charlie Tee, Endor, Bklava, Seb Zito, Serial Killaz, Pola & Bryson, Venjent and many more.
The party will continue on the Sunday, July 30, with dancehall legend Sean Paul in town. While support comes from General Levy. The weekend will kickstarts into action on Friday, July 28 however, at The Forum. With Super Sonix, the UK’s leading 16+ music event, and MADE Festival teaming up for Birmingham’s younger dance music fans – with DJs Hedex and Bou confirmed to headline.
“After a few years away due to the Commonwealth Games, we were given the one-off opportunity to return MADE back to its roots, and back to Birmingham, so it’s fair to say we are really excited for the 9th edition of the festival,” said Festival Director Pete Jordan. “Across three days we plan to shine a spotlight on the many amazing artists and creatives within the second city. The theme of collaboration runs strongly through this year’s events.”
“The Saturday line up features some of our favourite acts from over the years, but also includes a number of new exciting talents and local brands that mirror the evolving world of electronic music. We’re very pleased to have Sean Paul performing too on an action-packed Sunday daytime event, and the region’s younger music lovers can experience what we do alongside the amazing Super Sonix, a brand that sets the standard for 16+ events in the UK.”
