Over 40 new artists and performers have tonight been added to the MADE Festival line-up, for the festival’s five-year celebration set in Birmingham’s Perry Park.

One of the city’s most successful electronic music producers and DJs, Chris Lorenzo, will be playing the main stage, as will one of the region’s hottest new DJs, Nathan Dawe.

They join previously confirmed MADE Stage artists Kurupt FM, DJ EZ, and the one and only Dizzee Rascal. Also featuring on the MADE Stage are Yxng Bane and Not3s.

Andy C is also set to feature at the one-day event, set to take place on Saturday 28th July. RAM Records, an independent record label established by Andy C way back in 1992, will host an arena at the event, which Andy C himself is set to headline, alongside SASASAS and Welsh superstar High Contrast.

Also featuring are RAM Records heavyweights Dimension, Culture Shock, Rene Lavice, and Sound in Noise.

“MADE Festival is Birmingham’s biggest music event.”

Two local club brands will also host stages at the festival. Influential Birmingham promoters 02:31 and Portal will host MADE’s third and fourth stages, with a focus on celebrating the city’s creative talent.

The 02:31 Stage is billed as “an exciting mixture of Bassline, House, Garage, and Grime,” and will be headlined by Coventry’s Holy Goof. Portal’s stage will be headlined by Camelphat, responsible for chart-topper and Ibiza Shazam #1; Cola.

Festival Director, Pete Jordan, issued this statement alongside this evening’s Phase 2 line-up announcement:

“The fifth edition of MADE Festival will build upon the phenomenal success achieved over the past four years and marks an exciting new era for the festival. It’s time to open a new, more colourful chapter in our story and we’re looking forward to making Perry Park our home. We’ll be curating an amazing offering of music, performance arts, graffiti art, street food and celebrating the abundance of creative culture that exists within Birmingham.

We’d like to thank Birmingham City Council and the statutory authorities who have worked hard with us to make this event a reality and help us continue to put the city on the map by showcasing the amazing music events and creative industry that has developed within the city in recent years. We are proud to be spearheading this movement with MADE Festival and appreciate all the support we have received.”

Tickets for the event are available for as little as £42.50.
