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.

Now in its third year, the festival is refreshingly multidisciplinary in its approach, bringing together forward-thinking music, visual art, poetry, panel discussions and workshops. For 2019, No Bounds is expanding into new venues, with an opening party against the backdrop of Kelham Island Museum, as well as daytime performances and art pieces engaging with the surroundings within. Each evening will culminate with an all-night rave at Hope Works.

The first wave of confirmed names for 2019 include: Aurora Halal, Caterina Barbieri and Reuben Spini, Courtesy, dBridge, DJ Q, Gábor Lázár, JASSS, Lanark Artefax, Lee Gamble, LSDXOXO, Mark Fell, Nkisi, rRoxymore, Shygirl, SPFDJ, TSVI, Ziúr, and Zuli.

Come back soon for more programme announcements and our top picks from the full lineup.
