About Rec Rock – established in 2014 as an independent not-for-profit music festival. Run with the local community at heart, Rec Rock has helped to fund local initiatives, including last year’s attempt to install a number of life-saving automated external defibrillators in the local area.

The non-for-profit nature of the festival, established in 2014, means guests get to see an array of talent, whilst contributing to positive local causes. This year, all proceeds of Rec Rock are going to three charitable organisations – Lifeshare, 1859 Clear The Doorways and The Breakfast Club Sheffield.

This follows from success in 2016, when Rec Rock raised crucial funds for the installation of a number of life-saving automated external defibrillators (AEDs) within the local area, along with full training for two community members to use them.
