Tramlines – Sheffield’s inner-city music festival – announces headliners as iconic indie band The Libertines, legendary ska band Toots and the Maytals and R&B girl-group All Saints.
Returning to Sheffield from 21 – 23 July with a new-look festival site! The ninth edition of Tramlines will be an exclusively outdoor event, spanning three of Sheffield’s best park spaces and allowing the festival to bring its biggest lineup to date.
Other acts announced today include Metronomy, The Coral, We Are Scientists, The Pharcyde, Twin Atlantic, Cabbage and many more. Full line up can be found below.
Earlybird and first release tickets for Tramlines Festival 2017 sold out in record time, but second release weekend tickets are now on sale for just £38 plus booking fee.
The decision to tweak the format of Tramlines 2017 came in response to event organisers listening to feedback from its festival goers. Tramlines Festival Director Sarah Nulty explains:
“After each festival, we turn to our audience to find out what they’d like to see at the next event. The overwhelming feedback was that people wanted to see bigger acts on the Tramlines stages. By streamlining Tramlines to three outdoor stages, it’s meant we could deliver something really special. Sheffield is often hailed as an ‘Outdoor City’, and has a ton of public parks, and a third of it sits within the glorious Peak District National Park. It is the UK’s leading destination for people seeking outdoor adventure, and we are excited to present an exclusively outdoor event for 2017.”
The Main Stage will be located on Ponderosa Park, fans of indie, rock and hip-hop will want to head to the second stage at Devonshire Green. Meanwhile, the Folk Forest, the ever-popular third stage at Tramlines, is located in the beautiful setting of Endcliffe Park.
