Rockin the Bowl at Don Valley Bowl

In 1993, Def Leppard, Thunder, Ugly Kid Joe and Terrovision played to over 40,000 people at the now demolished Don Valley Stadium. Looking to bring back some of that iconic rock ‘n’ roll feel back to the Steel City, organisers thought Don Valley Bowl seemed the perfect outdoor arena to premiere the return of open air rock concerts.

This year the festival is working with partners such as Fender guitars and Cloven Hoof rum.
