Platform Festival 2019

Musicians, comedians, DJs and more will be taking over Sheffield Students’ Union next month for Platform Festival, as the team behind the event confirm their 2019 line-up.

The student led festival will take place from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 March this year.

Acts vary from DJs and beatboxers to yoga workshops and ‘Shakespeare for Breakfast’, organised by Sheffield University Theatre Company (SUTCo).

Co-chair Hannah Lloyd, who will be performing at the festival herself, says “it’s such a fun weekend. Everyone gets really involved and it’s for such a good cause. We go down to Cavendish Cancer Care every year to talk to Jonny, who’s in charge of the fundraising side of things, and he explains to us what they’ve been doing, and the work they do is just so important.

“So it’s for a good cause, and it’s really fun, and it’s supporting the university and the local community.”

Tickets are just £5.50 for a day or £11 for the weekend, and are available here.
