Pile-Up Festival line-up announced

Pile Up Festival has announced the first wave of acts that will be appearing at their 2019 festival, to be held across four stages at Sheffield University between 12-14 April. The organisers of the festival have taken the bold, almost unprecedented step of announcing 80+ new and emerging bands from throughout the UK and the USA in the first announcement, allowing them the initial limelight before the headliners will be revealed in subsequent announcements.

The people behind Pile Up Festival are music fans without major backing who have worked with emerging acts for many years, assisting in numerous ways to help bands grow and develop, which the line-up below shows.
