Tramlines first line-up announcement
Words: Ellie Ward
The Libertines and Metronomy have been announced as first headliners for Sheffield's Tramlines festival which will take place between July 21 - 23 at a new outdoor site this year, Sheffield’s Devonshire Green.
Also announced are All Saints, Toots and the Maytals, The Coral, Estrons, Bossy Love, Twin Atlantic, Cabbage, Loyle Carner, Goat Girl, Don Letts, Spring King, Omar Souleyman, Alvarez Kings, Blaenavon, Cate Le Bon, Nadia Rose, Akala, The Magic Gang, We Are Scientists and more.
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.”
