Held in Digbeth, the all-dayer features the best in grime, house, garage and drum & bass with the likes of Giggs, Chase & Status, Sub Focus, My Nu Leng, Chris Lorenzo, Goldie, Charlie Sloth and Jaykae among the star-studded bill.
Chase & Status bring a discography to their ever-dynamic DJ sets that doubles up as a cast list for the best on the UK beat, flying a flag with every colour from dubstep to grime constituted. Marshalling the scene under MTA Records with a new LP soon to be let loose, the D&B dons will be joined by a DJ set from the renowned Sub Focus and the ‘Landlord’ of Grime since ’07 Giggs, whose widely celebrated album saw him receive critical praise across the board.
Calling on the circuit-breaking Birmingham-boy Chris Lorenzo, MADE Festival will continue to champion the emerging local scene, whilst Bristol sub-heavy selectors My Nu Leng featuring Dread MC. London duo Gorgon City will also be joining the party, with their unique brand of chart-crossover house.
