For the very first time, the city-wide festival will kick off and conclude at Sheffield Cathedral, with live performances by Blawan, Manchester rapper-dancer Blackhaine, and other unannounced guests on Friday, October 14, and a closing concert produced by Mark Fell on Saturday, October 16.
Speaking on this, the festival wrote on Instagram: "One key change this year is our move from Kelham Island Museum to the incredible Sheffield Cathederal, this beautiful gothic style building is a major landmark in the city and signifies a move back into the centre this year. We are rediscovering our Covid ravaged city and injecting life, love and creativity into its heart.
"We have been given full access to the Cathederal to explore its many spaces and we look forward to revealing our full plans to you soon."

As usual, the majority of the action will take place at Hope Works, an industrial location. This year's lineup also includes DINA, The Dorothy Pax, Bal Fashions, and Plot 22.
A takeover at Hope Works will be hosted by The Beatriarchy, a music platform that supports marginalised musicians.

No Bounds will also continue to push the limits of technology, with two works already confirmed: Mark Fell and Rian Treanor's Intersymmetric Sequencer NNNB and Patterns In Between Intelligences, a group that combines coding and live dance.
Last year, we invited 96 Back into the Lab LDN for a No Bounds takeover ahead of the festival. You can watch that here.
