MADE For The Weekend adds more names to Friday line-up

30th August 2018 Off By

MADE For The Weekend has added four new artists to the Friday line up.

The two-day indoor festival extravaganza will add MIST, Sneakbo, Lisa Mercedez and Izzie Gibbs to a stellar line up of hip-hop grime and bass, that already includes Giggs, Pusha T, Stefflon Don, Maleek Berry, Preditah and Nasty C. 

Continuing their 5th Year celebrations, the team behind July’s sold-out MADE Festival at Perry Park have joined forces with AEG Presents, one of the world’s leading live music promoters, to deliver an event the likes of which the iconic Genting Arena in Birmingham has not seen for many years. 

MADE For The Weekend’s Saturday will feature D’n’B pioneer Andy C, after he played a packed-out tent back at MADE Festival in July. We caught up with Andy C before his set.

This stands alongside a huge Saturday line up of drum ’n’ bass, house and bass, that includes Chase & Status & Rage, My Nu Leng feat. Dread MC, SaSaSaS, Gorgon City present KINGDOM, Catz ‘N Dogz, Max Chapman, Notion, Bushbaby B2B Sammy Virji, Eli Brown and many more yet to be announced.

MADE For The Weekend will bring this massive weekender to Birmingham on Friday 12th October and Saturday 13th October.

MIST

MADE For The Weekend: MIST

Birmingham’s own, MIST continues his rise after an appearance on Charlie Sloth’s ‘Fire In The Booth’, a sold out UK tour and two MOBO nominations last year.

This talented rapper has a truly distinct sound that cannot be ignored and is sure to be fired up in front of such a big home crowd.

Sneakbo

MADE For The Weekend: Sneakbo

Sneakbo crashed the UK top 20 with his album ‘Brixton’ earlier this year mixing up rap, grime and reggae in fresh new ways.

Referenced by Drake as one of his influences, Sneakbo was asked to join the US superstar’s UK tour and is renowned for bringing high energy levels to his sets.

Lisa Mercedez

MADE For The Weekend also welcomes rising star of UK rap, Lisa Mercedez to the Friday line up.

Born in Jamaica but hailing from south London, this versatile artist is regularly supported by BBC Radio 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, Rinse FM and more, and is renowned for her dancehall moves and undeniable stage presence.

Izzie Gibbs

Also joining the line up is Izzie Gibbs.

This highly talented winner of the ‘best newcomer’ in the UK Urban Music Awards 2016 continues to fulfil his potential with a reputation for dropping hard-hitting grime bars, as well as crossing into vocals and rap, typified by his killer last single ‘People’.
