The 10th edition of Tramlines festival, boasts the biggest, best and surely most exciting festival line-up to date! The new site, at Hillsborough Park, set in the heart of the North, will be rocking this summer; when heaps of today’s and tomorrow’s musical stars arrive to delight.
Retaining the status of one of the best budget festivals, the new amendments to make the 10th year, truly the best it can be, have dramatically taken Tramlines to match any other conventional greenfield festival. Incorporating 4 stages this year, one hosted by local venue ‘The Leadmill’ and the additions of the all new ‘Library Stage’ which holds host to some live, under-the-radar peformers. As well as a bigger than ever ‘Into the Trees’ which offers a hideout for families, with lots of activities tailored just to them, transforming into a DJ hub by night.
Tramlines have spent the last year tailoring its festival to fit a broad spectrum of people of all ages and desires, not only with the music, but with family friendly areas and a comedy line up.
The line-up is a spectacle itself, bringing headliners, Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher and the High Flying Birds alongside Craig David’s TS5.
The star-filled line-up doesn’t stop with the headliners. Blossoms will be mixing up indie, synth pop, alt and psychedelic rock with their thrilling live show, and flower-power hip-hop legends, De La Soul, who are still one of the most influential groups in the scene more than 20 years after first emerging. Add in the local lad, turned global star, Jake Bugg and the witty lyrics of rapper Stefflon Don, and the Tramlines lineup so far is looking sharp indeed.
Even providing a stage for tomorrows artists, some special acts to check out beforehand surely have to be Yorkshire 4 piece The Sherlocks, alongside NME favorites, The Magic Gang, pop soloist Naaz alongside plenty of rock and indie, with, Pale Waves, Coasts, Gengahr and Stereo Honey.
Make sure to keep checking Tramlines, to see for anymore line-up announcements.
