The Libertines, All Saints and Kano are among the headline acts preparing to rock the city.

But the festival - which begins next Friday (July 21) - also has a proud reputation for unearthing future stars

This year, Tramlines has teamed up with the PRS For Music Foundation this year to showcase some of the up-and-coming performers it supports on a new stage at Devonshire Green.

The team at Tramlines has picked three potential stars of the future to look out for on that stage.

MS BANKS

A 22-year-old, multi-award winning artist, from South London, Ms Banks stands for female empowerment and individuality, encouraging women everywhere to be themselves no matter what they’ve been through or what society expects of them.

This is reflected in her music where her wordplay, energy and lyrics are small insightful windows to her own experience. She is the only female rapper to feature on Tinie Tempah's Junk Food mix tape, on the song Been The Man.
