Setting up a Big Top at Don Valley Bowl, the weekend event will see some of the UK’s biggest music legends perform including Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds. 

The first of its kind, Rock N Roll Circus is where the best in musical talent meets the weird and wonderful world of the circus. Not only will the artists blow you away as they rock the Big Top, you’ll experience the breath-taking performances by aerialists, stilt walkers, fire performers, fortune tellers, contortionists and much more. 

The weekend event kicks off on Friday 1st September with headliners Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. With the new album ‘Council Skies’ set for release on 2nd June, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Bird’s appearance in Sheffield is the conclusion of an extended run of summer concerts in the UK for the legendary star.

Having had Noel headline the inaugural Rock N Roll Circus in Newcastle last summer, the event organisers are looking forward to bringing the touring circus concept to music fans in Yorkshire. 

Joining Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on the line-up will be Happy Mondays, The Cribs, The Joy Formidable and Somebody’s Child.  

The forthcoming album features recently released ‘Pretty Boy’ and the current single ‘Easy Now’.  

Happy Mondays need little introduction. The ‘Madchester’ band from Salford were one of the most popular forces of alternative music in the late ‘80s to early ‘90s. They are considered one of the true originals from the early indie scene and will be performing all of their classics at Rock N Roll Circus.  

Wakefield’s finest The Cribs, led by the Ryan Garman and his two brothers, will be bringing their spiky lo-fi indie rock to the Rock N Roll Circus party. Welsh alternative rockers The Joy Formidable and Somebody’s Child, AKA Cian Godfrey, one of Ireland’s most spellbinding breakthrough vocalists of the year so far, complete the music line-up. 

If you love rock and roll, you won’t want to miss this incredibly exciting and immersive event. More details for the rest of the weekend’s line-up will be announced in due course.
