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 Operations Director, Timm Cleasby commented: “This is a truly amazing moment for Tramlines and a great recognition of all the hard work over the last decade or so, we’re chuffed to bits. Being named alongside big hitters such as Download and Glastonbury in the Best Major Festival category also shows just how far we’ve come as an event. It was fantastic to see Jenny Hamada win the Sarah Nulty Women in Festivals Award, Sarah contributed hugely to making Tramlines what it is now and it’s amazing to see the continued acknowledgment for her work. This award is big for Sheffield too and means a lot for the local scene. Many thanks!”

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).

Tramlines Festival Review 2019
CONCLUSION
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.
