After a year away from summer festivals, Tramlines has finally announced its grand return, with a mega line-up in store for music fans this year.
Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced a four-week delay to lockdown easing, which will see legal restrictions lifted. The new date falls a few days before the Tramlines festival on July 19th. It’s been reported that Tramlines will go ahead as part of the Government’s Events Research Programme (ERP) pilot scheme, after Kendal Calling organisers pulled out this week, according to Access All Areas.
Coming back bigger and better than ever before, the Sheffield-based festival will take place July 23-25th, with the likes of The Streets, Royal Blood and Dizzee Rascal taking to the stage this summer.
Other major names include The Kooks, Blossoms, Sophie Ellis Bextor, The Pigeon Detectives, Jake Bugg and The Fratellis, with more line-up announcements expected soon.
Tramlines Festival operations director, Timm Cleasby, said, “The pandemic has hit us all very hard in a million different ways but the support that Sheffield has already shown us is incredibly humbling for us all. We’re super excited to bring you what I feel is one of our strongest line ups.
“The three main headliners have been on my list for a good while now and we’ve got some brilliant returning friends as well.
“All this said, we’re very serious about the public’s safety and take our responsibilities regarding COVID very seriously. We’re keeping a close eye on developments and will act accordingly should things change.”
Tramlines will take place at Hillsborough Park, Sheffield on July 23-25th.
