As one of UK’s most popular inner-city music festivals, Tramlines’ new home is just 13 minutes from the city centre by tram, meaning it stays connected to the plethora of fringe activities happening all over town. Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival has received the Best Metropolitan Festival at the UK Festival Awards 2019.
Tramlines Festival Operations Director, Timm Cleasby commented, “I’m proper excited for us to bring this line up to Sheffield. Big names for Sheffield’s biggest party. Gettin the F.E.A.R. with Ian Brown on Friday Night, right through to Sunday Madness, It Must Be Love. With some of Yorkshire’s finest bands too, I Hate To Say I Told You So, but it’s going to be Bonkers. See you in the park.”
As well as weekend tickets costing £99.50 and day tickets costing £45 (Friday) and £50 (Saturday and Sunday), children’s ticket are also on sale. With a pass for 5 – 12-year olds costing just £10 and £3 for those aged 4 and under, Tramlines continues to offer some of the best value festival tickets around.
The UK Festival Awards 2019 also presented the Sarah Nulty Women in Festivals Award to Jenny Hamada of AEG Presents. This award was created in 2018 in honour of the late Tramlines’ Director, Sarah Nulty who passed away just weeks before the 2018 event. Since last year, Sarah has received a whole host of posthumous awards including a civic award from The Lord Mayor of Sheffield and an Outstanding Contribution Gong from the UK’s Association of Independent Festivals (AIF).
A well-organised event that ticks a lot of boxes. Showcases big gun heritage acts as well as up-and-coming raw talent. Improved Transport links. Ticket prices that are hard to beat for a decent line-up.
