FORGED IN FIRE – SET IN STEEL
On September 14th 2019 Rockin the Bowl – Forged in Hell 2019 brought open air rock back to the Don Valley in Sheffield to critical acclaim from fans, bands and press alike.
In 2020, Covid-19 made it impossible for live events to go ahead with a proper rock n roll atmosphere and we were not prepared to water down Rockin the Bowl into a drive in gig or put people in nice neat squares and keep them silent for 12 hours. So, with the absolute support of our team, audience, bands, vendors, subcontractors and friends near and far, we took the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 event and make 2021 an absolute blast!
10th to 12th September 2021 Rockin the Bowl – Forged in Fire and Set in Steel will be a full scale rock and roll assault – a three dayer of massive proportions, blasting the cobwebs off Don Valley Bowl.
So… come along and help us put open air rock and roll back into the STEEL CITY.
Without you… it’s just an empty field.
