Pile Up Festival Announces First Wave Of Bands

Pop Punk Pile Up 2018 was one of the best experiences I’ve had this year. And 2019 is set to be even better.

That’s right, the amazing organisers have announced they’re coming back for a second round and this time it’s going to be bigger and better. For one it’s headed over to Sheffield University and will be held across four stages and the first wave of bands has over 80+ acts on the bill. The festival will take place between 12th – 14th April and one reason I love this festival so much is that the organisers work with new and emerging bands from up and down the UK and America.

The festival organisers 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.

Here is the first wave of the lineup with the day splits.
