Sarah Nulty, Festival Director said, "This is only the second announcement we have made but already the line up is looking pretty amazing. We still have loads more to come, last year we had over 600 artists playing across the festival so it just shows the level of diversity at Tramlines. There really is something for everyone."

"The key thing though is that the festival is free. No tickets, just turn up and see your favourite artists."
