We’re beyond proud and excited to announce the line-up for Sheffield Music Trails festival as part of the Summer in the Outdoor City events programme with Sheffield City Council. 

This is a unique opportunity to catch some of the finest artists from South Yorkshire & the U.K. performing for FREE at 19 of our city’s finest independent venues.

The Trails will take place on Saturday 2nd April, taking music-lovers on a tour of sights and sounds across the city, from Castlegate to Kelham, Abbeydale Road to Heeley and West Street to Leadmill Road.

With no genre off limits and no shortage of extraordinary acts ready to light up Sheffield, we can’t wait to welcome you back to your favourite spaces, and maybe even introduce you to some hidden gems!

The Trails will be free to attend, no tickets or bookings necessary, but venues will be restricted to their capacity and age limits may apply. 

After such a turbulent couple of years, we hope you will join us in celebrating these amazing local spaces whilst enjoying a diverse selection of the U.K.’s finest musical talent.
