Location: Sheffield, UK
Celebrating 10 years throughout 2022, Hope Works is among England’s most respected clubs and HQ of acclaimed festival, No Bounds. A former wartime gun barrel factory (and later a car spray shop), raw feels meet Grade-A sound and residents at the vanguard of contemporary beats. Past performers include electro don 96 Back, experimentalist Rian Treanor, former Daytimers stalwart Gracie T and junglist Tim Reaper. Underpinned by Chris Duckenfield, and founding father Lo Shea, recent investments include upgraded lighting and accessible toilets, building on an inclusive reputation that has fostered a following loyal enough to ensure a Covid-19 crowdfunder safeguarded the venue’s future.
