Tramlines is a festival like no other. It’s completely free and delivers a line-up that would normally cost a packet. The music policy includes everything from huge bands performing for thousands to little known musical oddities, playing to a handful of devotees in the back of a pub.
The festival features artists from across the board. 2010s show included shows from Echo and the Bunnymen, Toddla T and Annie Mac, David Rodigan, The Mystery Jets, Darwin Deez, The King Blues, The Hoosiers, Craig David and The Dum Dum Girls amongst many more. Tramlines is a showcase for Sheffield music. Hopefully anyone and everyone who is involved in the local music industry has a role in the festival. This year we’ll be featuring over 200 local bands.
The festival is bigger and better than ever this year. There’s new stages, venues and themed trails that will take you to every corner of Sheffield. People who stay up to date with announcements leading up to the festival will be rewarded with access to super-secret performances and hidden away locations that the general public will not know about.
The festival site (Sheffield) is easily reached by the UK road and rail networks. There’s no on-site camping but there’s plenty of affordable hotels and hostels for you to stay in.
