Two days of new and exciting music set in the heart of Sheffield, showcasing some of the very best new and emerging talents, Get Together Festival not only acted as one of many celebrations for the return of live music but more pertinently, a platform for the up-and-coming.
Taking place in the depths of the Uni of Sheff’s students union, the refreshingly female-fronted line up captured the essence of a younger Tramlines festival, hungry for growth. The Mysterines, Dream Wife and Black Honey took centre stage on Saturday, complimented by the niceties of Tim Burgess and the flailing eccentrics of Willie J Healey.
Taking you back to a simpler time Ibibio Sound Machine brought the groove to shake up the ambiance on Sunday. The clash of African funk and disco with 80’s electronics created the perfect nuance for a vibrant dance party.
Self Esteem may have only released her debut solo offering in 2019 yet Rebecca Lucy Taylor is performed to a Sheffield crowd full of familiar faces. The pop powered fireworks light up the night and unlike the words on her Pete McKee ‘typical Wednesday’ tees, the show is nothing short of electric.
