This year sees Tramlines celebrating it’s 10th edition by taking the festival to Hillsborough Park, just outside of Sheffield’s city centre, with four stages set to attract 30,000 people. With almost 100 other acts alongside headliners Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher and Craig David, it can be hard to know where to begin. We’ve picked five of our favourites to help you out!
Despite having two top 10 albums to their name, Everything Everything remain criminally underrated. With a UK tour culminating in a sold-out show at Alexandra Palace earlier this year, they are certain to bring a solid and polished performance with them to Sheffield.
Their sound has developed over the years, leading to an extensive and diverse back catalogue of music for Mystery Jets to dip into. Last year saw the band celebrate their five albums with five nights at The Garage in London, performing each of their albums in full, so who knows what old favourites they might pull out for Tramlines!
This won’t be Teleman’s first time at Tramlines and probably won’t be their last. After their incredible set on the Folk Forest stage in 2016 and with a new album under their belt, Teleman have earned a welcome invite back to the festival.
The Big Moon
When a band’s debut album is shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, you should definitely be paying attention! With only three UK festival appearances this summer, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to catch The Big Moon and their incredibly catchy brand of indie rock.
Out of thousands of applicants, the winners of this year’s ‘Apply to Play’ scheme were handpicked by festival organisers and representatives from The Leadmill. Universal Tree are fronted by Sheffield’s very own Steve Edwards (who has collaborated with artists such as Cassius, Bob Sinclair and Axwell), so go and support local talent!
Tickets are available now for £79 from the Tramlines website. Make sure you get yours before it sells out!
