Tramline events

The Tuesday Club will be hosting a HipHop barbecue. Mixed in Sheffield, Kid Acne, Kabal, DubCentral and numerous other local artists and promoters will be showcasing their take on the Steel City in their own curated venues. Matt Helders and Toddla T are already slated in to host their own nights. There will be a Ceilidh at The Dog and Partridge, a cinema in a van, every Sheffield band with a drum kit and a mic will find a stage while the local blues and acoustic artists invade every available nook and cranny in the city's local boozers.

Tramlines will also be taking its first substantial green footsteps this year. Alongside a host of green initiatives being developed for the festival, they will also be hosting a Solar Powered Disco for 400 lucky revellers. There are currently more than 40 Sheffield traders, including caterers, clothing retailers and much more.


This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels, hostels and guest houses in the area. Student housing group Unite has signed up as accommodation partner for the festival, offering student digs for £30 per person per night.
