Rock 'n' Roll Circus will return to Sheffield in 2024 with organisers announcing early plans for music festival
Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus is set to return to Sheffield after a successful first year. The inaugural music festival saw Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Self Esteem headline. In 2024, the event will be back at Don Valley Bowl.
Event organiser Ali O’Reilly “We want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for making this event so very special.
“We knew Sheffield has an unbelievable reputation for hosting major live music events and it was our dream to come here and continue that legacy. We want to thank all the artists, circus performers, Sheffield City Council, our partners, volunteers and sponsors for supporting us. And to the public of Yorkshire. You are simply the best and we couldn't have done this without you. We will see you next year. We're coming back for you, bigger and better!”
Councillor Martin Smith, chair of Sheffield City Council’s economic development and skills, said: “It will be fantastic to welcome the Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus back to Sheffield in 2024 after seeing so many music fans enjoy the inaugural event last weekend, including seeing local legend Self Esteem and a whole host of homegrown talent perform.
“Sheffield’s strong musical heritage goes back decades, and the city has a good reputation for producing some of the UK’s favourite bands and artists. Events like Rock N Roll Circus attract more music fans to the city, boost our economy and provide opportunities for local creatives. It will be brilliant to have the event back for 2024.”
