A collection of three of the finest acts from Sheffield and Chesterfield come together under the roof of one of Sheffield’s most iconic venues.

Fast-paced, intense, and fiercely atmospheric, The Death Rays of Ardilla lend their presence to the stage at The Washington this month. Described by The Independent as “fuelled on snake’s blood drunk from the devil’s armpit”, it’s not hard to see why this band are one of the most explosive and dynamic local live acts on the circuit.

Smooth and clean vocals will be ringing around the Sheffield City Hall in June, and Sons of Pitches are an act to behold.
Hailing from Sweden, Me and My Kites are an infectiously uplifting and optimistic pop act.

Sheffield hard-rockers North Of The Fall deliver an intense and heavy selection of head-bangers that’ll have no problem opening up mosh-pits galore before the stage at the O2 Academy on June the 25th. Featuring crashing drums, warped guitars, thunderous bass, and powerful vocals, North Of The Fall transition beautifully across loud and driving verses into melodic breakdowns with ease.
Canadian electro-dance act Ayria comes to the stage at Corporation on the 11th of June, bringing with her a vast array of carefully thought out and fantastically executed brand of techno tracks.
