Sheffield SU reveals lineup for new campus music festival ‘Underpass’

And it’s as Indie as you expected

Fickle Friends will headline a new Sheffield students’ union festival announced today.

“Underpass”, set for Saturday 2 May, will see a host of acts perform at Foundry and surrounding venues.

Indie rock bands Spector and Larkins also feature in the first Leadmill-esque lineup announcement that is sure to uphold a few stereotypes of the Steel City.

Local band The Seamonsters and Patawawa are also set to perform, and a stage will be dedicated to Tuesday Club house music.

SU president Jake Verity, who pledged to launch a music festival in his election manifesto, said he is “really pleased” to see it come to fruition.

It will be open to the public and tickets are now on sale at £15 in the first tier, £20 in tier two and £25 in tier three.
