Hot off the press, Tramlines Festival have just revealed more names who will be appearing at the inner-city Sheffield event, alongside previously announced The Libertines and Metronomy.
Headlining the Saturday main stage are Primal Scream, the heavily influential indie band, who first stormed the charts in the early 1990s and won the first ever prestigious Mercury Prize for their album Screamadelica. Another name announced with a Mercury Prize link is grime rapper Kano – rising through the ranks over the decade, he won critical acclaim and a Mercury nomination for his 2016 release Made in the Manor. Kano will be taking his place on the Devonshire Green stage on the Friday of the festival.
All-female alternative quartet The Big Moon have been added to the bill – the girls have had a monumental few months, receiving airplay support from Radio One. Also joining them across the weekend will be The Reflex. Tramlines are keen to showcase local talent alongside national and international acts – enhancing the lineup are Sheffield and South Yorkshire acts The SSS, Luxury Death, The Liberty Ship, Matic Mouth, and Logs.
Taking place over the 21st and 23rd July, second release tickets are currently being sold at £38, which is a brilliant price for a festival containing so many diverse names. For more information on purchasing tickets and the rest of the lineup, you can visit the website here.
