Sheffield's biggest party, Tramlines, returns for 2024 with one of its strongest line ups and its biggest first announcement to date including three main stage headliners plus over 50 other acts, all set to appear over five stages from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th July...
Headlining the 16th edition of Tramlines on The Sarah Nulty Main Stage is Paolo Nutini (Friday), Jamie T (Saturday) and Snow Patrol (Sunday), each making their debut appearance at the 40,000-capacity event. Key headline support comes from Bombay Bicycle Club who've just announced their new Fantasies EP; returning Tramlines favourite and chart topping, Tom Grennan; and what will be one of the most highly anticipated performances of the weekend, a home turf appearance from Sheffield legends, The Human League with their first UK show of the year.
Headliners over on the second stage, officially known as T'Other Stage - lovingly named by a competition winner in 2018 – are one of the finest Britpop bands of the 90s, The Charlatans (Fri), the Brit-Award winning Holly Humberstone (Sat), and the Mercury-nominated Yard Act (Sun) who've been teasing out a slew of joyful new singles from their forthcoming album, The Overload.
Other not-to-missed performances spanning everything from drum 'n' bass to spoken word come from the Queen of Dance, Annie Mac; Geordie misfits Maximo Park; Scottish indie crew, The Snuts; hit-making rapper and producer Example; breakout spoken word artist Anthony Szmierek; there's a welcome return for Soft Play – FKA Slaves; Birmingham brothers PEACE; indie-pop stars The Magic Gang; grunge alt.rock outfit The Mysterines; The Maccabees spin-off band, 86TVs; BBC 6 Music 2023 Album Of The Year nominee, Will J Healey; and special guests, The View, who only returned to festival stages last year after a long hiatus.
Sheffield's Biggest Party is not just about the established or the headline talents, as anyone who has been will vouch for, but a vibrant festival packed full of emerging new and local talent. This commitment led to Tramlines winning the 'Best Festival For Emerging Talent' at the 2023 UK Festival Awards. Tipped for great things, festival-goers at Tramlines should make time to check out sets from former busker and now prepping to release his debut album, Dylan John Thomas - another rising star having sold out the Barrowland Ballroom three times in 2023 in his home city, Glasgow. Dublin's garage punk trailblazers Sprints play their first Tramlines as they celebrate their debut album crashing the national top 20 albums chart. Bedroom pop prodigy and current Radio 1 playlist fave Flowerovlove also debuts at Tramlines. And Sheffield's first Poet Laureate and hip hop artist, Otis Mensah will take to the stage to dazzle with insightful lyrics and stylish grooves.
The 2024 Tramlines line up will continue to showcase the best the Steel City has to offer with appearances from MC and producer Coco whose top-tier collaborations include AJ Tracey, Conducta and Nadia Rose; The Leadmill Studio Orchestra, a brand new project - funded by the Tramlines Trust in 2023 and now coming full circle to appear on a Tramlines stage - that merges classical music with many genres of hip hop, RnB, and garage, performed by Sheffield's finest young talents; and no Tramlines line up would be complete without the hilariously entertaining, the Everly Pregnant Brothers.
