The first acts have been announced for Tramlines festival which returns for a ninth year between Friday 21st and Sunday 23rd July 2017, this time using three outdoor spaces in Sheffield.
Confirmed as headliners are All Saints, The Libertines, Toots and the Maytals, who will play the Main Stage on Ponderosa Park, along with Twin Atlantic, Loyle Carner, The Age of LUNA, Nadia Rose, Akala, Metronomy, M.O, Hot 8 Brass Band, and the man who is Don Letts.
The decision to tweak the format of Tramlines 2017 came in response to event organisers listening to feedback from its festival goers. Tramlines 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. It is the UK's leading destination for people seeking outdoor adventure, and we are excited to present an exclusively outdoor event for 2017.”
Early bird tickets are on sale, priced at £38.
The festival includes stages, venues and themed trails that will take you to every corner of the city. The festival site (Sheffield) is easily reached by the UK road and rail networks.
