Since opening in 2005, Plug has established itself as one of the top live music and club venues in Sheffield and the North of England. We have had the good fortune to play host to some incredible acts over the years including Arctic Monkeys, The Prodigy, Patti Smith and Lily Allen and remain constant in our quest to bring the very best acts, both old and new alike, to the stage. As a venue, Plug dances perfectly on the tightrope between grandiosity and intimacy, bringing audiences awe-inspiring live and DJ performances in a perfectly proportioned setting.

    Propa Local vs Propaganda - Tramlines Fringe

    Fri 25 July at 06:00pm until Sat 26 July 2014 at 03:00am

    Alistair Sheerin Fresh from touring supporting The Enemy, and having previously toured supporting Miles Kane, the mighty Alistair Sheerin brings his unstoppable headline show to Plug to deliver upbeat songs, addictive lyrics that have captured the attention of some well known artists such as Tom Clarke from The Enemy who labelled Alistair 'a f*****g genius” Section 60 Having a great year this year, Section 60 are pure no nonsense rock n roll guitar band who stay proudly true to their roots and who don’t change with passing fads or trends. Sticking to their guns they deliver massive songs on a big scale to big crowds. The SSS Sheffield’s most underground band don’t have a Facebook page. Their loyal following comes purely from word of mouth and considering they recently broke all box office records at Plug for their most recent gig with us it’s not to be underestimated. These boys mean business and come to Plug with a growing reputation as one of Sheffield’s biggest bands. Sabella Sheffield rock band with a britrock infusion of slick, tightly executed guitar parts entwined with upbeat instrumental backbones; creating perfectly chilled rock anthems. If you like Milburn, The Clash, Catfish & The Bottlemen, The Jam etc you’ll be loving these boys Redfaces The talent in this band is unbelievable. Something totally different for the city as these boys deliver indie pop in a big way. With a great pedigree and with hooky, catchy songs dripping out of every show they do, Redfaces are one of Sheffield’s brightest new talents Lauren Tate Having spent a few years refining her music, Lauren Tate now explodes onto the music scene in a big way bringing her distinctive rock vocals with her. Quite simply (and we’re not exaggerating) one of the most exciting new vocalists in the country. Amazing talent and needs to be seen. This event is 14+ until 11pm.

    Propa Local vs Propaganda - Tramlines Fringe

    Sat 26 July at 06:00pm until Sun 27 July 2014 at 03:00am

    The Sherlocks Ripping it up currently, touring and supporting the likes of The View and The Enemy, these lads share the same management as Babyshambles and have been relentlessly delivering the Sherlocks live show around the country. Likened to The Courteeners and (as usual) The Arctic Monkeys, The Sherlocks have had big press support and are tagged as ‘the next big thing’. Liberty Ship These lads have developed over the years from a great young band to a full on non nonsense rock n roll band with a hellraising reputation. Having supported Reverend & The Makers on his last tour, Liberty Ship come to Plug already having proved their point through their last shows, and will step out on stage in front of the usual huge army of Liberty Ship fans. The Ratells One of the hardest working bands to come from the steel city, Sheffield band The Ratells average a show every 4 days, have sellout shows and tours all over the country and have been hotly tipped by many. Previously supporting Kaiser Chiefs and The Boomtown Rats, The Ratells have also just enjoyed their first Radio One airplays and are on top form. Faster The Chase One of the most underrated bands in the city, Faster The Chase take influences from Biffy Clyro, Alter Bridge and Thrice and bring melodic, harmonic rock in a big way. There will be people out there who haven’t seen Faster The Chase live yet and those people are in for an absolute treat when they get a load of these boys. Heart Shakes These boys describe themselves as Psych Pop from Sheffield. We would describe them as one of the most interesting prospects out there in the new bands coming through in the city. Playing festivals and shows around the country Heart Shakes will play Tramlines during a busy and successful 2014 and we are sure you’ll love watching this band making their Plug main stage debut. ** Please note this event will be 14+ until 11pm **

    Ohm Sweet Ohm Free Party w/ Mosca, South London Ordnance & Pedram

    Sat 26 July at 11:00pm until Sun 27 July 2014 at 05:00am

    Price = NOWT! We’re throwing a party to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported and partied with us at Ohm during our first year. And it’s totally FREE! We’ll be welcoming back Mosca, who we hear can’t wait to return to the DJ booth following his last Ohm appearance. Any DJ who starts a set with Wu Tang’s ’36 Chambers’ and ends with a meaty helping of heavy techno is more than all right with us. Also joining the party and making his Sheffield debut will be South London Ordnance. He’s established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the electronic music scene and 2014 looks set to be his biggest and best year so far. Supporting these two will be Ohm resident Pedram. Fingers crossed he’ll be fit to play following his set at Global Gathering the night before! This Ohm is on Tramlines’ weekend but you won’t need a wristband or special tickets to get in. Just come down and enjoy a rave on us!  https://www.facebook.com/events/277355242428120/

    Goldray

    Thu 11 September at 07:00pm until Thu 11 September 2014 at 10:30pm

    Remember Kenwyn House? The guitarist from Reef? Well, he decided to take his hands off whatever they were on and left the riff-driven alt-rock world of Reef to explore musical pastures new. And we sure are glad he did. For the last few years, Kenwyn has been busy creating psych rock four piece, Goldray. Classic Rock Magazine said of Goldray, ‘Pitch together the moodiness of The Doors, the grooviness of Cream and the trippiness of early Floyd and you get this splendid prog ‘n’ psych magical carpet ride’. High praise indeed. Goldray have both feet firmly planted in the psych rock tradition of the late 60s and early 70s and after a successful mini-album release in January of this year (which yielded amazing reviews), the band are now preparing for a full album release. So get yourself down to Plug to drink in Goldray’s sensual, psychedelic aromas and bone-rattling guitar riffs. https://www.youtube.com/user/Goldrayband

    The Dunwells + Special Guests

    Sat 13 September at 07:00pm until Sat 13 September 2014 at 10:30pm

    Emotionally driven, anthemic folk-rock with a strong Americana core? Do tell... They've come a long way since forming in Leeds back in 2009 and with a coveted supporting slot and subsequent comparisons to folk leviathans Mumford and Sons, The Dunwells are definitely more than worthy of a look and a listen. The last two years have seen them honing their live performance skills to perfection at some huge festivals including SXSW, Lollapalooza and The Great Escape to name but a few and 2014 will see the greatly anticipated release of their second studio album.

    Cate le Bon w/ H. Hawkline

    Thu 18 September at 07:00pm until Thu 18 September 2014 at 10:30pm

    Cup of tea, Cate? Cate le Bon is so fond of the nation’s favourite drink that she chose to name her latest album Mug Museum. And when she’s not drinking tea, she writes and performs songs of psychedelic folk majesty. As an artist, Cate has been described as Nico-esque and her live performances are a thing of intense beauty. Beneath her icy cool demeanour bubbles a menacing energy. Her voice possesses a curious and diverse quality, which can be shy and folksy in one breath and a high soprano in the next. Prepare to be utterly enthralled.

    Plug and Tiny Teeth present Dan Owen

    Mon 29 September at 07:30pm until Mon 29 September 2014 at 10:30pm

    To look at him, Dan Owen (aka Blues Boy Dan) is a fairly typical twenty one year old with a penchant for the blues. But when you hear him sing, you’re transported into the Mississippi Delta, and Dan isn’t Dan anymore, he’s a no good, god-forsaken, eighty year old blues man, howling at the devil on his back porch. This blues boy is one of the most sought-after young blues players in the world and it’s not hard to see why. Following one gig, he posted a video of his performance of The Ballad of Hollis Brown on YouTube and attracted the attention of a certain Mick Fleetwood (yes, of the Mac variety), who subsequently tracked Dan down and became his mentor. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, dreams do come true. So get down to The Greystones and prepare to have your mind blown.

    Ella Eyre

    Tue 07 October at 07:00pm until Tue 07 October 2014 at 10:30pm

    With her magnificent mane of leonine hair, ferocious powerhouse soul vocal and impressively energetic live show, Ella Eyre has become an unstoppable force within British music. Since proving herself to be one of the UK’s most enthralling and captivating debut female singers, Ella has been wowing the crowds throughout the UK having sold out a headline tour as well as performing prolific slots at this summer’s festivals. Now the BRIT award winner announces a twelve date headline tour this October giving fans an opportunity to hear the voice of 2014 up close. Since signing to Virgin EMI two years ago, Ella has featured on chart-topping band Bastille’s cover of TLC’s “No Scrubs” classic, “No Angels”, which shot straight to the top of the Hypemachine chart. Shortly after, casual songwriting sessions with then unknowns Rudimental and Naughty Boy evolved into Ella being involved in a No.1 and No.2 album respectively with “Home” and “Hotel Cabana”. Her single with Rudimental, “Waiting All Night” was one of 2013’s biggest hits, and she spent much of last year on tour with Plan B, Rudimental and Bastille, playing at sold-out shows across the globe. Now focusing on her own live performance, Eyre’s own stage show has evolved into its own particular dynamic; known for her catsuits, bright lipstick and of course huge hair, Eyre is a dynamo onstage, offering one of the most exhilarating live performances seen in years. https://www.facebook.com/thisisella?fref=ts https://twitter.com/EllaEyre

    Dreadzone w/ DJ Fat Piggy & Matt Willoughby

    Sat 11 October at 07:00pm until Sat 11 October 2014 at 10:30pm

    Cult favourites. Cast your mind back to 1993, when Jurassic Park was busy terrifying small children and Whitney was riding high at the top of the charts with some old country tune. It was during this time that a little instrumental, stripped-down dub dance group called Dreadzone were in their infancy. Now, 21 years on, that little dub dance group have got 9 studio albums and 2 live albums under their belts and they’re still going strong. Constantly striving to remain relevant by writing fresh, innovative material has led to a slew of hit records, massive critical acclaim and a huge, devoted fanbase. These guys pretty much wrote the book on spanning genres and their music is a bubbling pot of reggae, techno, folk, dance and rock, all mixed up in a big dub cauldron. Even though they’re 21 years into their career as a band they feel they still have something to say musically and lyrically and we certainly agree with that.

    Thu 16 October at 07:30pm until Thu 16 October 2014 at 10:30pm

    The four members of Glass Animals have known each other since the age of fourteen, but they only started making music together after they finished school and Dave Bayley showed the other members the music he made and asked them to be in a band. After the release of the EP Leaflings they decided to take it slow and focus on their university degree for a year. In 2013 they came in contact with Paul Epworth, an English music producer, and they signed with his label Wolf Tone. After 2 EPs, 3 singles.

    Five-time Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum-selling blues/rock guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd announces a run of new UK shows. Shepherd’s band is a veritable who’s who of rock and blues. In addition to long-time vocalist Noah Hunt, the band features drummer Chris Layton, a 2014 inductee into the Musicians Hall of Fame as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, ex-Firm bassist Tony Franklin and keyboardist Riley Osbourn, whom Shepherd met while Osbourn was playing in Willie Nelson’s band.

    The Struts

    Tue 28 October at 07:00pm until Tue 28 October 2014 at 10:30pm

    ‘We’ll be fine handling fame. We’re already massive rock stars in our heads. Only our circumstances will change and we’ll be able to go out more often’. Not my words, the words of Luke Spiller, flamboyant lead singer of The Struts. He is what would materialise if the glamorous eighties and the grungy nineties had a love child (see photo above). The Struts are a rock ‘n’ roll band that ooze charisma and style, with an aesthetic that makes their female fans swoon. And the rest of the band is just as magnetic as their front man, a rare feat for any band. But not only do they have the looks, they also have the tunes. Their songs are high octane, infectious and unforgettable. ‘It Could’ve Been Me’ is an unapologetic sing-along anthem, while ‘I Just Know’ sounds like a revitalised Axl Rose penning a new ‘Brown Sugar’. Come down to Plug and see what all the fuss is about. I guarantee it’ll be a foot stomping extravaganza. https://www.youtube.com/user/strutsofficial

    Sat 01 November at 07:30pm until Sat 01 November 2014 at 10:30pm

    Sheffield’s favourite electronic sons come to Plug armed with a back catalogue of classic hits that everyone knows and everyone loves. Heaven 17 shows have a reputation for being spectacular evenings of hit after hit after hit, with everything from ‘Let Me Go’, to ‘(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang’ to the classic ‘Temptation’. Today, with a millionaire cabinet, bankers’ bonuses and high unemployment, Heaven 17’s sly, post-modern critique of modern society has never sounded so resonant, nor been so necessary. Martyn Ware and Glenn Gregory will bring this breathtaking show to Plug on Saturday 1st November. We’re expecting a packed house of hand raising, foot stomping classics from the Sheffield band that everybody loves... HEAVEN 17! http://www.heaven17.com/video/

    Kate Tempest

    Sat 08 November at 07:30pm until Sat 08 November 2014 at 10:30pm

    Kate Tempest started out as a rapper, and remains one. She earned her stripes in south London's battle scene and the now legendary Deal Real and Speakers Corner ciphers. For over a decade Tempest has been devoted to her craft, writing and performing continuously, whether rapping acappella at punk raves, or rapping with a DJ at an open mic or rapping with a band on tours across the UK, she has been committed to music since the minute she started. In recent years, she has found most success as a poet and a playwright, no mean feat considering it all began with a love of beats and rhymes and good rap lyrics that told stories.
