“We are really excited to return with Tramlines, for what is now our eighth year. Having Dizzee to headline the Main Stage on Friday will be an incredible way to start the weekend.
We listened to feedback from last year and realised people needed more choice when it came to buying tickets to help them catch their favourite acts. So far, the new options have been well received, and early-bird tickets have already sold out. We’ve got some great headliners yet to announce plus a great mix of international and local talent still to come and we’re all looking forward to sharing what is set to be our biggest year yet.”
