We have made the difficult decision to move MADE Festival to later in the summer. Despite all restrictions for events being lifted by the Government in Step 4 on July 19th, we are aware that Sandwell and the Greater West Midlands is still experiencing high Covid infection rates and we feel it is appropriate and our responsibility as event organisers to wait for the situation to settle down. We are doing this for the safety of our customers, staff and performers, but also with respect to local residents’ concerns.
As frustrating as this might be for you, and we sincerely apologise for the late change of plan, we believe that doing this will allow us to hold a better, safer and more enjoyable event, and make sure that we are able to return to the beautiful Sandwell Valley for many years to come.
We aim to announce the new date next week, and until then we will suspend ticket sales. Once we have revealed the new date we will announce re:sale and refund process for those of you who are unable to make the replacement date. For holders of after party tickets, these will also be transferred onto the new date. We appreciate your support and understanding during one of the most difficult times for the UK events industry, but we are determined not to simply give in and cancel, and we promise to deliver the most amazing MADE Festival to date.

PS: For those in Birmingham on Saturday we will be holding a smaller show at The Mill Digbeth - keep an eye out for the announcement coming soon.
