BIMM Institute Birmingham Partners with MADE Festival

18 March, 2021

Here at BIMM Institute, we’re so excited to announce our latest festival partnership. This time, we’ve partnered with the West Midlands’ largest music and arts celebration: MADE Festival.

With an increased capacity at a new home (Sandwell Valley Country Park), MADE Festival is set to be a highlight for any avid festival goer, and goodness me, we do all miss festivals! And we’re obviously not the only ones; the festival has completely sold out! However, our students will have the opportunity to get in on the action.

Work opportunities for BIMM Students

MADE Festival is offering BIMM Institute students a plethora of roles at the festival. These include:

  • Slots for performers
  • Artist liaison assistants
  • Stage manager assistants
  • Gate entry stewards
  • Placements in the artist liaison office

Pete Jordan, the festival’s Director, has headed some online Masterclasses and workshops for BIMM in the past and is keen for BIMM students to gain experience at the festival. Pete had this to say:

“MADE Festival is very happy to have BIMM Institute as a partner on this year’s event. As one of the UK’s most respected music and events education providers, their contribution to the industry is fantastic.”

More about MADE Festival

“MADE’s return for 2021 signals a major step in the right direction for the UK festival industry’s overall recovery.”

Now an important cultural and economic event in the West Midlands, MADE’s return for 2021 signals a major step in the right direction for the UK festival industry’s overall recovery and the wider cultural and economic sectors.

MADE Festival is entering its seventh year and will have seven stages, a huge line-up, and a long-awaited headline set from The Streets. This will be their biggest-ever gig on home turf, with over 20,000 festival fans expected to attend. The Streets became the voice of a generation after Mike Skinner’s 2002 breakthrough Mercury Prize-nominated album Original Pirate Material.

With two subsequent Number One albums and a performance at Glastonbury, there’s definitely an air of hype around them at the moment. Also announced on the Main Stage is the don of jungle and drum & bass, Shy FX, and Coventry rapper Jay1. London songsmith Greentea Peng is also a must-see. More Birmingham talent arrives with Dapz On The Map and many more.

The festival will see other homegrown talents, such as Wilkinson, Sonny Fodera, High Contrast, SASASAS, Artwork, Horse Meat Disco, Bad Boy Chiller Crew, Crazy P Soundsystem, and many more. Together with a mix of arts, creative performances, and friendly faces, MADE offers unforgettable festival adventures.

“We look forward to kickstarting the UK’s cultural recovery and making our anticipated debut at Sandwell Valley Country Park.”

– Pete Jordan, MADE Festival Director.

“We are hugely excited to be returning in summer 202”, says Pete. “After a difficult year for so many, we look forward to kickstarting the UK’s cultural recovery and making our anticipated debut at Sandwell Valley Country Park. To have sold out this far in advance is fantastic news, and we remain focussed on delivering a safe, welcoming, and entertaining event to the West Midlands.”
