Sandwell Valley Country Park has been announced as the host venue for the 2020 MADE festival.
The festival – which will be headlined by The Streets – will take place on Saturday 1 August and is expected to attract crowds of up to 20,000.
Now in its seventh year, MADE Festival is the West Midlands’ biggest electronic music festival and celebration of street culture.
Councillor Maria Crompton, Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for leisure, welcomed the news and said the council was looking forward to working closely with event organisers to put on an excellent festival.
“We are very excited to be hosting the MADE Festival at Sandwell Valley Country Park in West Bromwich,” she said.
“It is one of the biggest festivals in the West Midlands and it’s great to have a big live music event back in Sandwell.
“The festival will attract thousands of visitors to the borough – boosting businesses and tourism in West Bromwich and the surrounding area.
“This is just the beginning and we hope more large-scale events will come to Sandwell Valley in the future.”
The festival will include drum & bass, house, disco, hip hop and bass music, with Gorgon City, Hybrid Minds, Wilkinson, Stefflon Don, Shy FX, Sonny Fodera, Holy Goof, Horse Meat Disco, Flava D, SASASAS, Jay1 and Artwork.
Pete Jordan, Festival Director for the MADE Festival, said: “We’re genuinely thrilled to be bringing MADE Festival to Sandwell Valley Country Park this August.
“Since 2014, MADE has grown year on year to become a celebration of culture and creativity in the West Midlands, and we look forward to working closely with Sandwell Council to highlight the region further in the coming months and years.”
