Basslines will be thumping at Sheffield’s Tramlines festival after leading radio DJ Annie Mac joined her partner on the bill.
The Radio 1 dance DJ is set to headline the 02 Academy on the festival’s second day.
Her partner and fellow Radio 1 DJ, Sheffield’s own Toddla T, has already been announced as playing the main stage on Devonshire Green on the first night of the festival, which runs across dozens of city venues from Friday to Sunday, July 25 to 27.
Sarah Nulty, festival director, said: “We’re thrilled to deliver another huge instalment of artists for this year’s event.
It’s shaping up to be our strongest yet and there’s much more to announce.”
Other new acts confirmed include Bo Ningen, Menace Beach and Moko.
They join artists already announced including indie-rockers The Cribs, who are headlining the Devonshire Green stage on the Sunday, and Friday night headliner Katy B, whose second album Little Red went to number one this week.
Festival bosses are in negotiations with another big-name act to headline the Saturday night.
