We're delighted to be back for our second year, and to be able to reveal some of our favourite new artists in 2017's first announcement.
Jagwar Ma, Slow Club, Lady Leshurr and The Selecter all feature among the key names so far. Buy £15 weekend tickets here, while stocks last.
Your new favourite multi-venue metropolitan festival will return to Sheffield City Centre for its second year from 3rd to 4th March 2017, showcasing a blend of established artists and up-and-coming acts. After the success of 2016's debut event, and after listening to your feedback, we've extended the event, which will now take place across two days.
Heading up the bill are Australian psychedelic rock outfit Jagwar Ma, whose newly released second album Every Now & Then has been earning critical acclaim and is already promising to build on the success of hits such as 'Come Save Me' and 'Uncertainty'.
Jagwar Ma will share the stage at the iconic venue The Leadmill – now in its 35th year at the forefront of the UK's live music scene – with a host of Sheffield talent. This showcase will be headed up by alt-rock duo Slow Club, whose latest album One Day All Of This Won't Matter Anymore sees the band experiment with an Americana-tinged sound while retaining the rich vocal harmonies of their earlier albums.
Additional Sheffield talent comes from indie-pop quartet The Crookes, who return to the city following an extensive US tour in support of their latest, Fierce Panda-released single 'Roman Candle'.
Meanwhile, at the festival's largest venue, Plug, legendary 2-tone pioneers The Selecter return to Sheffield with an arsenal of hits including 'On My Radio' and 'Three Minute Hero'.
Fans of electronic music, who last year enjoyed the legendary likes of Roots Manuva on the bill, will also find much to enjoy on the lineup, with emerging rappers Lady Leshurr and Nadia Rose just two of the hotly-tipped new acts on the bill.
Those looking to discover new bands and alternative music will be catered for too, with Hookworms, The Wytches, Islet, The Orielles, Blood Sport, Luxury Death, Jodie Abacus and Azusena among the first announcements.
