Music

As the birthplace of the Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Def Leppard, Bring Me The Horizon and The Human League (to name a few), it’s no coincidence that Sheffield enjoys a thriving local music scene.  In fact, according to a report carried out by Sensoria and the University of Sheffield, the city  boasts 465 active bands, 65 recording studios and 69 venues- making it one of the UK's leading 'Music Cities'.

In addition to the locals, venues such as Sheffield City Hall, Sheffield Arena, O2 Academy, The Harley, The Greystones and the legendary Leadmill, also present a host of big tours from a broad range of international bands, artists and DJs throughout the year.
