Sheffield Music Trails 2022: Free entry city-wide festival returns to Sheffield for its second year

Sheffield Music Trails return on Saturday 2nd April!  Following a hugely successful debut last August, the Sheffield Music Trails return bigger and better than ever for their second year, providing a full day of free entry shows across 19 independent music venues throughout Sheffield. This includes venues from Castlegate through to Kelham Island, Abbeydale Road to Heeley and West Street down to Leadmill Road.  Originally conceived as a multi-weekend celebration, this year’s trail condenses all the excitement of the festival into a single day, offering music-lovers an opportunity to experience a massive variety of amazing performances by some of the finest acts from South Yorkshire and beyond, as well as reconnecting with their favourite venues and discovering some hidden gems after the pandemic kept us away from them for so long - all with absolutely no entry fees. Topping the bill at The Leadmill is North London based indie-pop band Kawala , whose latest single 'Hypnotised'

The Leadmill: "Advance Ticket Sales Matter Now More Than Ever!"

After a turbulent two years, the iconic Sheffield music venue is embarking on a campaign to drive people interested in purchasing tickets for future events to do so before April 1st 2022, in order for venues to take advantage of the VAT cuts that have been made on music venue ticket sales up until the very last moment. With a huge range of events to choose from, there will be something for everybody! The venue posted online this week with the following statement: "Advance ticket sales matter now more than ever!”  As some of you may know, business VAT rates on music venue ticket sales return to 20% on April 1st, so there’s no better time than now to secure a ticket for that show you’ve been holding out on. Not only can the Leadmill promise you a night to remember, but your purchase would be helping out an independent venue after a turbulent couple of years. Every ticket sale made now benefits the industry more than if you waited and payed the same prices. Head to the Leadmill websi
