As the name suggests, it's a friendly affair...

Get Together is a festival all about discovering amazing new music, meeting great people, and enjoying the best food & drink from local producers.

Still a relatively young festival on the Sheffield scene, Get Together has come a long way since its first outing in May 2021, where they immediately pulled in names like Self Esteem, Black Honey, Tim Burgess, Dream Wife and Ibibio Sound Machine- not bad for a first year!

In 2022, they stepped it up further taking over five stages at the University of Sheffield, for a Bank Holiday celebration that featured Squid, Confidence Man, The Murder Capital, Goat Girl and many more. 

Now back for a third edition in 2023, this multi-stage festival has a new Sheffield home and will be relocating to take over the vibrant warehouses, breweries, studios and bars of Kelham Island & Neepsend. 

Taking place on Saturday 20 May across 10 stages, the 2023 lineup so far includes: Friendly Fires, CMAT, Hamish Hawk, H. Hawkline, James Righton (of Klaxons fame) Sister Wives, Divorce, Cathy Jain, the Goa Express, Ziyad Al-Samman, plus many more. 

The new festival site also allows Get Together to go late into the night, with DJ sets from the likes of Raw Silk, Queer House Party, Gut Level and Heavenly Jukebox just for starters, plus a pop-up record shop from Spinning Discs.

Beyond music, the festival continues to bring together the very best independent food and drink. This year festival-goers will be spoilt for choice with a bangin' selection of street food specially curated by Peddler, while the rejuvenated Kelham Island Brewery will ensure the craft beer keeps flowing, as they welcome some of the best breweries in the country for The Kelham Beer Mile, with tap takeovers from the likes of Verdant, Deya and Boxcar.

Get Together 2022 Highlights

Want a taste of the festival? Taking place at Sheffield University Students' Union, Get Together 2022 was spread across seven stages, with Squid, Confidence Man, She Drew The Gun, The Blinders, and Pip Blom, just some of the talent in the lineup.

For 2023, Get Together have recruited some of Kelham Island & Neepsend's best venues to create a multi-stage festival experience like no other. 

All entirely unique and worth a visit in their own right any time of the year, they include industrial event space extraordinaire Peddler Warehouse; legendary music venue, Yellow Arch; Mexicana party spot Pina and Sheffield's epic taproom Heist Brew Co.

Having opened just last year, Neepsend Social Club and Canteen and quirky microbrewery bar Alder, may be newcomers to the scene but they've quickly established themselves as local favourites too and will be great additions to the Get Together circuit. 

Meet the 2023 venues...
