Reviews of Tramlines Festival
Tramlines - Sheffield’s inner-city music festival – returns with another genre-busting lineup for 2018.
Sheffield’s Hillsborough Park is to become host for 10th edition of Tramlines Festival featuring various stages of music, comedy, cinema, and its biggest lineup yet.
Sheffield’s inner-city music festival, Tramlines, will host its 10th anniversary at Hillsborough Park from Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd July 2018. The celebratory move will mark the first Tramlines to be held on just one site. With it comes a bigger capacity – licenced for up to 40,000 people - and the space to programme more festival-style entertainment than before. New additions include a comedy stage, pop-up cinema, kids and family area, a stage programmed by Sheffield institution, the Leadmill, and local legend, Jon McClure (Reverend and The Makers) and much more. Organisers are pulling out all the stops to not only make the 10th anniversary the most memorable yet, but a huge celebration of everything the Steel City has to offer.
Since its inception in 2009, Tramlines Festival has carved a name for itself as one of the most genre-busting music festivals around. Previous acts to have graced the Tramlines stages include Public Enemy, Basement Jaxx, The Charlatans, Sister Sledge, The Cribs, Katy B, George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic, alt-J, the xx, Dizzee Rascal, Martha Reeves Roots Manuva, Slaves, Sugarhill Gang, Buzzcocks and The Selecter.
As a former winner of Best Metropolitan Festival at the UK Festival Awards and having been shortlisted for an NME Best Small Festival award, Tramlines continues to set itself apart with its inner-city location, cutting-edge music offering and unbeatable ticket price.
