We speak to Tramlines staff, artists from the line-up and other publications about who they are looking forward to seeing at this year’s event. From the diverse line-up, we showcase the big guns of the music industry, right down to the local heroes, up and coming talent. Selecting acts are Tramlines Organisers, Joe Carnall from Millburn and Good Cop Bad Cop, The Leadmill (Sheffield venue) team, Everly Pregnant Brothers, This Feeling and Sheffield’s Vibe Magazine. This is a two-part piece, click to here see Part 1.

Miles Kane

Looking across the board at the full line up, Miles Kane stands out for me. I’ve followed his career for the past few years and know his exciting brand of indie rock with that mod slant will work perfectly for Saturday at Tramlines.

Russell Pate – Technical Production Manager

Circa Waves
It’s a really great line up this year, but I’ve gotta say I’m really looking forward to the Friday night with Circa Waves on the Main Stage. T-Shirt Weather is such a banger and hopefully, if the sun’s out, it’ll make for a truly brilliant festival atmosphere!


Johnny Marr

I’m looking forward to the seeing The Smiths legend and nicest guy in rock and roll play Tramlines. He is one of the greatest guitarists of all time and puts on a live show that lives up to his reputation. It will be a pleasure to work with him and his crew again.



This Feeling is the best club in the UK for future Rock and Roll stars. Showcasing the best up and coming acts across the country in intimate venues and festival stages. If you want to catch future headliners be sure to check out stages and club nights curated by This Feeling. This Feeling’s Georgia Murphy gives us a preview of the acts playing this years Tramlines Festival:

Red Rum Club

Uniquely sumptuous ‘Scouse Americana’ full of trumpet, infectious melodies and extreme party vibes. Red Rum Club are fast becoming known for inciting stage invasions and mass sing-a-longs. With a charting debut album under their belt, they sold out every single date on their March tour this year and leave all audiences enraptured. 


High octane indie rock with snarling vocals and crunching riffs. Boasting over 13 million streams on ‘Thank God I’m Not You’, Himalayas have spread their sound across the globe. 


Sydney gaze-pop imports combining the epic anthemic qualities of Britpop greats and soaking it with surfy, dreamy hooks. Making their mark on the UK after a tour with DMA’s last year and recent headline shows that saw multiple sell-outs and crowds shouting every word back to them, Planet bring the Australian sunshine back with them this summer.

The Estevans

Raw and energetic with big hints of early Arctic Monkeys and The Libertines. Following a lengthy headline UK tour and a support slot with Pete Doherty, The Estevans truly capture the sound of the youth and are set to take things by storm.

The Rosadocs

Sheffield’s melodic indie purveyors The Rosadocs complete our Tramlines line-up for a taste of home grown talent. Following in the footsteps of fellow South Yorkshire successes The Sherlocks, the band recently headlined the O2 Academy, cementing their position as ones to watch in the local music scene.


Offering up a masterclass in punk performance. If you don’t fancy lad rock on the main stage Shame will the perfect antidote. Expect seething riffs, stage dives and zero f*cks given.

The Reytons

A band that sold out the iconic Sheffield venue; the Leadmill, quicker than the Arctic Monkeys, come to party! Their lyrics are both witty and catchy. The set is full of crowd-pleasers that will have you starting an indie mosh pit from the first track. It’s their first festival tour and with a sound that is maturing, you will want to say you were there from the start
