Makings are a six-piece electro-rock-act inspired by bands such as LCD Soundsystem and Depeche Mode. They mangle modern electro with traditional instruments, creating a contemporary sound you are dared not to dance to. Since the release of their debut album in 2016, they have toured internationally and have made appearances at Vantastival (IRL), Swell Festival (IRL), YouBloom Festival (IRL) , Blogtober (UK), Lechlade Music Festival (UK), The Monarch (UK), Proud Camden (UK), The Balor Theatre (IRL) and many other venues around UK and Ireland. They are currently working with Grammy Award winning mixer Jim Lowe (Stereophonics) on new material of which they released the singles 'Blackhole’, 'Pulse' and 'Beck N Call' in 2018. Expect to see many more releases throughout 2019 from this ever-evolving live act.

I definitely saw your show as one of the highlights of the weekend and hope that you may consider returning to Lechlade for next year's festival.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply to us and good luck in the future.
