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.
