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 across 10 stages this time, the lineup 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.
Taking place at Sheffield University Students' Union, Get Together 2022 was spread across seven stages. Squid, Confidence Man, She Drew The Gun, Pip Blom and The Blinders were just some artists/bands that featured in the line-up.
A lively party spot with Mexicana vibes, Piña owner/founder Joe experienced first-hand the amazing cuisine and culture on a Mexico trip back in 2016, and just had to bring it back to Sheffield. So, expect plenty of (high quality 100% agave-based) tequila, mezcal and, of course, delicious tacos.
