Get Together Festival announces new dates and acts for 2021 event
Taking place at Sheffield University Students’ Union, the dates for Get Together Festival have been rearranged for 7th-8th August 2021.
The two-day event has announced an exciting lineup featuring Self Esteem, Black Honey, Tim Burgess, Dream Wife, Billy Nomates, Ibibio Sound Machine, plus many more established and up-and-coming acts.
Brighton four-piece Black Honey will headline the Saturday of Get Together, having just reached no. 7 in the album charts with their latest release ‘Written and Directed’.
Closing Get Together on Sunday 8th August is Sheffield favourite Self Esteem (Rebecca Lucy Taylor). Having played in every venue across the city and toured the world with South Yorkshire duo Slow Club, Rebecca fired up the solo project and unveiled debut album ‘Compliments Please’ in 2019 – a critically acclaimed record loaded with bombastic pop bangers.
Charlatan’s frontman and record shop expert and all-round lovely bloke Tim Burgess also joins the line-up. Tim’s latest solo record ‘I Love The New Sky’ came out on Bella Union in 2020, and with his popular Twitter Listening Parties Tim’s positive vibes were a shining beacon of optimism during a difficult year; now he’s bringing the feelgood factor back in the flesh and on a live stage.
Each day, these will be joined by a whole host of outstanding new artists: The Mysteines, WH Lung, The Ninth Wave, Rose Gray, Baba Ali, Blanketman, plus plenty more.
Tickets for Get Together Festival are priced at £27.50 for the day and £44 for second release weekend tickets, available at somewhere.seetickets.com/get-together-2021.
