Brainchild of Sheffield promoter Leighton, Resistanz is an industrial music festival running since 2011 over the Easter weekend, at the Corporation venue in Sheffield, United Kingdom.[1][2][3] Held annually until 2016, the event was due to take place in 2020 but has been rescheduled for 2022 due to Coronavirus.[4] The festival primarily features alternative electronic music acts including industrial, EBM, futurepop, synthpop and power noise. In later years the festival expanded to include a smaller second room featuring an eclectic mix of artists from genres such as Chiptune, EDM and Drum and bass.
