In 2020 Doc'n Roll rocks Sheffield for the first time ever! Our debut edition in the city runs from 17th to 19th April at the beloved Showroom Cinema at the Workstation.
Doc'n Roll Sheffield looks forward to screening 3 of our most exciting features, each providing an enticing doorway into a unique musical world. Witness the birth and cyberspace mutation of a mysterious musical movement in The Rise of the Synths, peek inside the illegal raves and basement clubs of the early days of UK Drum and Bass in The Rest Is History or get under the skin of Sixties folk-rock legend David Crosby in the candid biopic that thrilled Sundance, Remember My Name. Or why not do all three!
This year's programme aims to dazzle music lovers, entertain documentary devotees and break down boundaries, shining a light on musical outliers and the pioneers who have proved that music is a universal language of hope and inclusion.
