Tramlines festival reveals 2017 line up

9 February 2017

The Libertines, All Saints, Loyle Carner, The Pharcyde and Twin Atlantic are just some of the artist’s head lining Sheffield’s biggest music festival: Tramlines.

Tramlines has been running since 2009 and has since won the award of ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards.

The festival has been a huge success with all ages, but it has been especially popular with students and young adults.

Student Harriet Myers, 21, said: “It’s a great thing for the city, I went last year and I’m planning on buying my ticket for this year very soon. I think it brings in a lot of new people to the city as well as money and there are chances for new and up and coming artists to get involved”.

While students are keen for the yearly festival to come around, some residents of the area are beginning to voice their concerns.

Karen Jones, 46, said: “My family love it, they stay with me and use my house as a B and B, but because I live so close to it I can hear it from my house and I think it’s very noisy and overcrowded.”

Tramlines explained why they value having the festival outside and view it as important, despite the possible noise disruption it may cause.

Tramlines Festival Director Sarah Nulty said; “By streamlining Tramlines to three outdoor stages it means we can 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.”

Ticket for Tramlines are currently on sale.
