Get Together – Sunday 1st May 2022
Get Together is a relative newcomer to the Sheffield festival scene but has made a great name for itself since it began. Instead of focusing on headline acts and famous faces, Get Together is a celebration of independent music, art, food, and drink. They focus on lesser-known acts, giving them a big stage and a big crowd to make their mark. In 2022, there will be 5 stages across Sheffield University with plenty of local food and drink to keep you dancing. Squid and Confidence Man headline this year with supporting acts The Murder Capital, Goat Girl, Pip Blom, NewDad, Du Blonde, Sinead O’Brien and many more.
