PILE UP FESTIVAL returns on the weekend of 12 / 13 / 14 April 2019 with a new home. The alternative three-day indoor festival will return with a fresh look after dropping the Pop Punk tagline and will be moving to a much larger home at SHEFFIELD STUDENTS UNION with four stages on each day: Main Stage; Foundry Stage; Stylus Stage; and Acoustic Stage. The move sees the festival grow to a much larger capacity event with bigger bands joining the line up as it develops, and further stages opened to give more emerging bands a chance to play to a big audience.
The Wave One announcement is reserved for the smaller bands. Whereas most festivals lead with their headliners and add smaller acts around them, PILE UP FESTIVAL wants to be different; they want to make it a habit of announcing all the emerging bands in the first wave to give them the initial limelight, with one or two larger acts involved.
Hence Wave One sees the return of MC LARS, who will be headlining Stage 4 on the Friday, with KOOKOO KANGAROO and MEGARAN in attendance on the same stage on the same day, alongside the best emerging acts from the UK and the USA in the initial announcement of 80+ bands. PILE UP FESTIVAL can also confirm that RISE WRESTLING will be in attendance with shows throughout the weekend, showcasing the maddest UK wrestling around.
With a huge number of emerging bands playing each stage across all three days, PILE UP FESTIVAL is designed to give a true mix to attendees, with the chance of discovering your favourite new band alongside catching some legendary artists. 2019 is the flagship year for PILE UP FESTIVAL, with a new home and a new outlook, and is unquestionably one to add to the calendar.
