The No Bounds Festival of Sheffield went down in history as one of the greatest people parties of 2017 with intellectual discussion meeting brand new cutting edge sounds and art for a handful of days in a sleepy industrial suburb. This October, the whole thing is happening again, only with even more quality than before? How can this be done, you may ask? It's no short order for sure, however with Hope Works behind the wheel and the kind of minds that run the underground and intellectual dance floors of the modern era, it seems that anything is within reach. Of course, when the people of Sheffield and their friendly neighbours get into something, they do it properly and show their worth. Team spirit has always been a key feature in this one time giant of manufacturing. Now as a city of commerce, information, and communication, with a handful of factories still flying the flag, this congregation can pack a punch.
To a selective soundtrack administered by the likes of Aisha Devi (live), Errorsmith (live), rRoxymore (live), Machine Woman (live), Daniel Avery, Volvox, Paula Temple, DJ Storm, Demdike Stare, Sounds of Sisso (live) and coucou chloe (live) plus many more in the pipeline, a festival of conversation, education, and inspiration will ensue. Make a date in the diary for the 12th - 14th of October this year and bring your thinking cap along with you. This is going to be an exciting hyper-local debate session involving politics, club-culture and gender equality. On demonstration are the talents and techniques of the industry, with have-a-go heroes more than welcome to join in the experience.
To garnish the whole weekend, many local artists are showing off their wares in various examples of commissioned and self-governed projects. Screenings of independent film will take place, enriching the souls and spirits of all who care to spend their time among new friends. Poetry readings and two all night raves just make the whole thing unmissable. If you have the opportunity to go to this event, then you really need to find a way.
