Following the huge success of last year’s inaugural edition, GET TOGETHER returns to the University of Sheffield’s Foundry stages for a huge bank holiday celebration of independent music, art, food, and drink on 1 May.
In 2021, GET TOGETHER was one of very few festivals that went ahead and received huge praise for its genre spanning and diverse line-up. This year’s event is set to be even bigger and better, with over double the number of stages, all within a 5-minute walk of each other.
Today, GET TOGETHER announce the first round of artists for 2022 including Squid, Confidence Man, The Murder Capital, Goat Girl, PIip Blom, Newdad and many more.
As one of the most exciting bands to emerge in the past few years, SQUID will headline the festival’s main stage. After hugely popular singles like ‘Houseplants’ and critical acclaim for their ‘Town Centre EP’, the band went on to reach no. 3 in the UK album charts with their album ‘Bright Green Field’.
More of a force of nature than band, GET TOGETHER will be the first chance that UK audiences get to hear Confidence Man’s new album ‘Tilt’ in the flesh which will be released just before the festival. It’ll also be the first opportunity to hear huge singles like “Does It Make You Feel Good” and First Class Bitch”.
A year on from their scheduled appearance, The Murder Capital will finally perform at GET TOGETHER! The band were meant to top their original 2021 line-up, but the external impacts of the pandemic meant it wasn’t to be. They were also one of the last bands to perform in Sheffield before we entered the first lockdown and what would turn out to be years of turbulence for the live music industry.
GET TOGETHER prides itself on discovery, and over the coming months even more artists will join the brilliant line-up announced today.
On top of an abundance of brilliant music, there’s so much more to the festival too. The popular garden area of the festival will become a beer & cider festival which brings together an eclectic host of craft beers, real ales, pilsners, cider & gin to the weekend.
Alongside this will also be a vast array of the best independent and local street food traders offering a wide selection of food from across the world with vendors being announced nearer to the event. The area surrounding all the stages will be filled with art and activities so that GET TOGETHER is without question the biggest bank holiday party in South Yorkshire.
