Public Enemy, Katy B, Sister Sledge, The Cribs, Annie Mac, Ms Dynamite and Toddla T Sound are just some of the huge names on track to play Tramlines – Sheffield’s own ‘urban Glastonbury’, writes Graham Walker.
There will be lots of free shows.
But around 200 acts, including 150 local bands, will play ticketed events at 15 city centre venues including the main stage in Devonshire Green.
And we have five pairs of weekend wristbands to be won to guarantee you a festival you’ll never forget, July 25 to 27.
For an ultimate guide to all the highlights see a special exclusive feature in The Star on Monday by head of programming, Kate Hewett.
As ever, the festival features artists from a wide range of musical genres, and it’s also a great opportunity to catch some future stars.
