Tramlines Festival is set to go ahead on Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th July at their home of Hillsborough Park in Sheffield.

With the line-up now confirmed and tickets selling well, Friday will see The Streets taking to the stage. This English rap music project led by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Mike Skinner, will undoubtedly bring a great day of entertainment to an end. Having released five studio albums, appearing at Tramlines will give them an opportunity to showcase their latest album, None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive, which was released in 2020.

Also on the Friday line-up are The Kooks, an Indie rock band who have been together since 2004. Influenced by the late 60’s British Invasion movement and the post punk revival of the new millennium, they are certain to get a few feet tapping away and make some new fans. They are touring next year to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of their 2006 album release, Inside In/Inside Out.

Friday will also see the Australian three piece band, DMA’s rock the festival along with Jake Bugg, Pale Waves, The Pigeon Detectives, The Slow Readers Club and Sophie Ellis Bextor who has kept her fans amused with her antics during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Saturday will see Royal Blood headline a great day of entertainment. This rock duo, whose sound is anchored by Mike Kerr’s unique bass playing technique in which he uses various effect pedals and multiple amps to make his bass guitar sound like an electric guitar and bass at the same time, will no doubt treat the Tramline Festival goers to tracks from their new album, Typhons which was released last month.

English indie pop band, Blossoms will be a real treat. In May 2021 they made national headlines when they headlined a one day festival at Sefton Park; the first festival to take place in the UK for fourteen months with no social distancing or face masks. At Tramlines they are sure to make some more headlines.

Other acts gracing the stage on Saturday include the hugely talented Mahalia, newcomer Little Simz and The Sherlocks.

Bringing the weekend to a close is Richard Ashcroft, the former lead singer with the Verve. Always entertaining, Ashcroft will deliver a set list which will include some of his solo songs and if we are lucky, some Verve songs might get an airing as well.

MC and rapper Dizzee Rascal is also on the line up for Sunday, with Tom Walker, the winner of the 2019 Brits British Breakthrough artist and special guests The Fratellis.

As promised to those who have rolled their day tickets over from 2020, they will have the opportunity to change days to a preferred day (subject to availability) now the 2021 line up has been confirmed.

Tickets can also be upgraded to VIP tickets which will mean that there is fast track entry, a VIP area, posh toilets, VIP food concessions, a VIP bar and a VIP seating area.

Official car parking is now available for Tramlines weekend at a daily charge of £7.50 and a weekend rate of £20.00.
