A jewel on the Northern calendar for music fans, Sheffield’s Tramlines will return with a massive new-look site. This year will see a huge milestone celebrating the tenth edition at Hillsborough Park.
Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Craig David’s TS5 have been confirmed as headliners for Tramlines Festival 2018.
From an inner-city festival to a city-wide event. Tramlines returns from Friday 20 July – Sunday 22 July 2018 at Hillsborugh Park, Sheffield.
Also confirmed on the line up are Blossoms, De La Soul, Jake Bugg, Reverend And The Makers, Stefflon Don, The Sherlocks, Mabel, The Magic Gang, Coasts, Bang Bang Romeo, Pale Waves, Gengahr, Naaz, Mullally, Stereo Honey, Mr Motivator and Rhythm Of The 90s. With plenty more still to be announced.
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
Hillsborough will see four stages including the main stage, the second stage (soon to be named), Leadmill stage and Libary stage. Other new additions include a comedystage, pop-up cinema, kids and family area, astage programmed by Sheffield institution, the Leadmill, and local legend, Jon McClure (Reverend and The Makers) and much more.
New for 2018 is a stage curated, on alternate days, by leading indie venue, the Leadmill and ‘The Reverend’ Jon McClure. The Leadmill will programme an alternative, heritage music offering on Saturday evening, whilst the Reverend’s Sunday Service, takes over the following evening. By day, this stage will induce belly laughs via the country’s leading comedy talent, programmed by Tramlines in conjunction with the Leadmill.
As usual, the fringe events will continue in the city centre venues and bars, as a separate entity. The Folk Forest will also return to Endcliffe Park but will be ticketed separately.
