In commemoration of 10 years of Tramlines, the team have treated us all to a comedy line up alongside various musicians with keen emphasis on Sheffield’s up and coming talent. Due to a dramatic increase in size and stature, Tramlines are taking the opportunity to fill Sheffield with a range of the country’s finest acts across 4 Sheffield stages.
The comedy offering at Tramlines 2018 is an exceptional one, with TV regular and much-loved stand-up act, Henning Wehn. Alongside Sheffield’s own fictional singer song-writer, John Shuttleworth, and “Britain’s only goth, lesbian, transsexual comedian” Bethany Black. With even more big names, including award winning stars, Tom Stade and Tom Wrigglesworth. Anyone seeking an alternative form of entertainment, these rib-ticklers will surely suffice.
Chief amongst the latest music additions, is 2017 Britain’s Got Talent Winner, Tokio Myers who will be supplying his debut album, ‘Our Generation’.
Yet, the new releases don’t stop there! Tramlines have continued to broaden the line-up list, with huge Sheffield favourites Everly Pregnant Brothers, bringing their ukuleles to cover anything from Coldplay to Kings of Leon. It has to be seen to be believed. In addition, Tom Grennan has been stated as the Leadmill Stage’s Sunday headliner, bringing his polished pop-soul to entice the crowd in Sheffield. Dubbed as one of the most hotly anticipated British Musicians in 2018 by The Guardian, he will add to the ‘Reverend Jon McClure presents’ line up.
For it’s 10th year, Tramlines remains dedicated to showcasing the breaking talent over its genre-spanning line up. Further musical additions come in the form of major label singer/songwriter, Rae Morris. Rising indie-pop stars Teleman, indie rock trio, Little Comets. Girl Pop combo Black Honey, London based alt blues/rock band, Palace and the highly acclaimed local boys, King No-One.
As Tramline’s continue to add to their star-studded line up the 2018 festival will continue its acclaim as one of the top inner-city festivals nationwide. Especially this year as the new site boasts a 40,000-person total capacity on a site only 13 minutes away from Sheffield’s city centre.
