Hacienda Classical heads south to Made Birmingham as part of their 3 day event

The Rainbow Venues & Weird Science Presents: MADE Birmingham
29th July – 31st July 2016
The Digbeth Triangle

As Birmingham’s much hyped inner-city festival draws near, the development of MADE Birmingham now enters into its third phase – by not only releasing a selection of an impressive array of artists and three extra headliners – Kano, Dusky and Shy FX, but also adding an extra 2 days to complete the now three-day event taking place on Friday 29th July – Sunday 31st July. The cultural festivities will begin with a Food and Drink festival on the Friday – in association with the award winning Digbeth Dining Club, as well as twenty further acts that will be partaking on the already impressive Saturday daytime line up. This will be finished with the Hacienda Classical on the Sunday bringing the music that defined the legendary club by Manchester Camerata.

On Sunday 31st July, the outdoor festival styled event will take place on hard standing ground as MADE, in association with SJM, will proudly bring the Hacienda Classical to the second city. The tunes once played in Manchester’s legendary Hacienda club will be recreated with an electrifying 40-piece orchestra and choir alongside hard-cutting original residents Graeme Park and Mike Pickering. A cultural clash of sounds that will centralize the allusion of MADE Birmingham. Peter Hook and the Light who will be performing an electronic New Order set. With street food aplenty and other activities, never has a summer Sunday in the second city semmed more appealing.

Breaking the ceiling on a lineup already set to crack the floor, MADE’s block-rocking bass and urban offering has been backed up with yet more bosses of the scene. The mic magic behind freshest release ‘Made in the Manor’ in Kano, and similarly gifted verbal gravitas of Birmingham’s own ‘Queen’s Speech’ Grime-stress Lady Leshurr, broaden a bill boasting the best of UK music wave-makers and those riding the crest. This feeling for low frequencies and fire lyricism is incited further with a host of added DJs aside the full force of Phase 1 and 2: Old-skool sovereign Shy FX leads with a specialism for bass and breaks, Swamp 81’s Klose One, Rinse FM’s Mark Radford and deep groove demigods Dusky. This full-tone affair just got amped up.

It wouldn’t be a testament to the cultural diversity of the City of Birmingham without the huge celebration of street food, arts and music. A family driven day of fun activities and a range of fresh music in play, to invite all ages to experience the artistic gathering of people. The Food and Drinks Festival is a joint effort graciously brought to the city by MADE and the award-winning Digbeth Dining Club – with food traders originating across Birmingham and beyond that will be offering a variety of native foods from around the globe. Buddha Belly will be serving authentic Thai food, with the gluten free Panang curry as a specialty served with aromatic jasmine rice.

Whilst Platinum Pancakes and Bournville Waffle Company will be onsite to provide a sweet tooth fix for all dessert lovers. Bare Bones Pizza is run by father and son team to produce wood fired pizzas that is definitely rated as ‘Boneafide’. Amongst others, The Flying Cows will be bringing the beef with their signature burgers and all round flair. With over 15 Food traders already confirmed, the Friday Food and Drinks Festival will be within limited capacity – early arrival is essential. As the surprises keep coming, the inimitable festival will round off the Saturday with the MADE… My Night, night time party from the late hours of 11pm till 6am – the tickets and line up announcement will be on Monday 2nd May.
