Sheffield’s place in the history and development of electronic music is already well established – from the early experiments of Cabaret Voltaire and the Human League’s creation of synth-pop, through Warp and Forgemasters bastardising techno into a whole new world, before Niche kickstarted heavy 00s party vibes.

No Bounds builds on this lineage and culture to bring a weekend of bleeps, beats and sweaty grins to this industrial city we call home.

Since starting out in 2017, the festival has been refreshingly multidisciplinary in its approach, bringing together forward-thinking music, visual art, poetry, panel discussions and workshops. Its venues have varied from Kelham Island Museum to Heeley swimming pool, all culminating with an all-night rave at Hope Works.

Come back soon to find out who's on the lineup for No Bounds Festival 2022.
