The award-winning Tramlines Festival transforms Sheffield city centre into a huge festival site, taking the reins on four outdoor spaces and 15 venues with a bill that showcases a diverse range of established names and brand new artists, and attracting approximately 100,000 people every year.

By day, it’s a place to discover the best in live music, spanning indie, rock, folk, pop and funk, from the increased 17,500-capacity Main Stage through to the 500-capacity Sheffield Cathedral.

By night, it’s a playground for all things electronic, taking over Sheffield’s best nightclubs and warehouse spaces for a genre-spanning blend of techno, drum & bass, house, grime and everything in between.

Weekend tickets are now on sale from www.tramlines.org.uk for just £42, plus booking fee.

Entry to the official opening party with Mr Scruff at the Leadmill on Thursday 21 July is free for all Tramlines wristband holders.
