On Saturday 1 October, London’s East End transformed in to a giant music stage, as venues across Shoreditch threw open their doors to public and red-hot music talent, for the Capital’s first post-pandemic music-crawl.

As Covid froze live music stages, the bottle-neck facing burgeoning newcomers grew intense, with many clambering to find a spare stage to perform to fresh audiences.  In response to mammoth public and industry demand for that backlog on new talent to be freed, East London venue owners created the Made Me Like It Festival. 

The one-day bumper event will gave the nation’s hottest emerging artists, and their fans, live performance stages across five grass roots venues.  Packed to the rafters, with wall to wall musical excitement, this festival was living proof that the nation is screaming out for as much new live music that the industry has to offer – we just can’t get enough, it seems.

 “Our new generation of music talent has been stifled since the pandemic hit, so for the sake of the music loving public and performers, we had to take matters into our own hands.  We’re threw open our doors to let music come alive again,” comments Hunter Jenkins of The Old Blue Last (one of the festivals participating venues). 

“There’s so much incredible music talent that needs a stage, and so many music lovers who want to get back to enjoying good live music, that the venues in Shoreditch came together, as a joint force, to make live music happen for everyone.  One tickets gave entry to all venues, so that the public could music-crawl freely from one venue to another.  This was literally a music orgy of the UK’s best burgeoning talent.  It’s been spectacular, we can’t wait for the team at Kilimanjaro Live to host this event again and again.”

Performer,  @LDevine adds, “It’s rare for London to host an event like this, yet this is exactly what artists need – a stage in London for the public to simply drop in and enjoy the best music talent that the UK has to offer, in small intimate venues.  I was excited to get on that stage, where I could see the faces of the audience, and almost touch them.  What an experience!”
