MADE Birmingham has revealed details of their additional second day this coming weekend, with food programming from award winning Digbeth Dining Club. Line-up additions announced include Low Steppa, 99 Souls, and Jasper James.
The festival, presented by The Rainbow Venues and Weird Science, debuted last year to huge success, being nominated for Best Metropolitan Festival in the UK Festival Awards. With an already stellar programme of both live music and DJ performances confirmed for Saturday 25th July — including a headline set from MK who described the event as having “Such an organic vibe to it, I sometimes wish that more promoters from the US would come here to experience what a great time it is” as well music from Wilkinson, Claude VonStroke, Heidi, Julio Bashmore, Beardyman, David Rodigan and Norman Jay – the festival is proud to reveal that a second day (Sunday 26th July) will be added with food host, the multi award winning, Digbeth Dining Club as well as further additions to the lineup including local hero, Low Steppa and rising house duo 99 Souls.
Sunday 26th July represents MADE Birmingham’s second day; a celebration of food, beverage and artistic talent from the Midlands and beyond. Digbeth Dining Club, award winning street food event which has revolutionised the scene in Birmingham, returns to host the food programming on the day whilst a selection of independent breweries, distilleries, street art from Digbeth’s City of Colours, live music, spoken word, retro gaming, and more will be on offer. Proceeds will go to local charities.
Homegrown talent and Birmingham’s finest, Low Steppa needs little introduction. A heavyweight in the bass music scene, he has been producing a host of celebrated tunes under several aliases and collaborative projects (e.g. Twocker, Rudi Stakker, Bass Weazal, Dreadstemz) not to mention his Simma Black imprint which is going from strength to strength. MADE invite him to play the Main Stage closing set for 2015.
Fresh from the success of their viral gold mine, ‘The Girl is Mine’ — which was debuted last year as Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune – 99 Souls AKA Le Project Secret is also announced for the Main Stage billing. The up and coming house duo are known for drawing influence from the worlds of Jazz, Hip Hop and everything in between and are set to get pulses raising at the event.
A further addition to the already heaving lineup, BBC’s Essential Mix and Rinse FM guest slot regular and the youngest DJ ever to play Glasgow’s legendary Sub Club, Jasper James will be making his mark on the Digbeth Triangle this July. He is also joined by the UK’s number one Bashment sound, bringing high energy and quickfire mixing, The Heatwave, a Rainbow Venues favourite and Birmingham rising star, Tom Shorterz and the London pirate radio collective behind BBC’s People Doing Nothing, Kurupt FM.
