The hugely anticipated MADE Festival final line up presents drum & bass legends, Chase & Status. Top of their game for 15 years, they continue to blow the roof of the world’s best clubs and festivals. This year their Return II Jungle album is sure to be another landmark in drum & bass. The original Artful Dodger, now known as Original Dodger, brings their authentic garage sounds to the party, while bass music fans will be lining up to see Skepsis & Bru-C. Rapper, Ocean Wisdom is one of the fastest rising stars of UK hip hop, and two seriously powerful drum & bass collectives, Kings Of The Shadows and Problem Central, take to the stage. House lovers will be excited by the prospect of Polish pair Catz ‘n Dogz bringing their playful take on tech house, and local lad turned globetrotter Tom Shorterz also bringing the heat. The list of incredible talent goes on and there may yet be a couple of extra surprises to come.
